I build software using Lazarus. I need a Opera component I can use in my software

I like Opera and I need my software to interact with it more than just starting it up and handing it a URL. I need a TWebBrowser-like component (that is used to encapsulate Internet Exporer in Delphi apps) for Lazarus. I need only a few really simple functions:
- The component needs to open Opera at a URL fed to it, and stay accessible to my Lazarus app for the next items
- I must be able to tell the existing instance of Opera created by my app, to navigate to a new URL (programmatically from within my app)
- I must be able to tell the existing instance of Opera created by my app, to load a specific html file from the local disk file system, then print it to .Pdf, silently in the background
Is there such a component? I don't even mind if the component is Microsoft Windows only, because I only build software for Windows. However, it would be nice if the component was cross platform like Opera.
My current platform is: Lazarus 1.8.4, FPC 3.0.4, OS: Microsoft Windows Server 2016.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
