Opera One looks very nice in my opinion, I just download it both in Windows and Linux, I use it in linux on 7 machines while in windows only in 1 (Job), at first I was kind on disappointment not to see GhatGPT and ChatSonic buttons on the sidebar but fortunately there´s option to add them Great Job Opera!, I could be back to using Opera as my main web browser on all my devices I just hope Widevine doen´t get broken for not including the correct libffmpeg.so that includes h264 needed by widevine, it was kind of anonnyg that everytime Opera got updated that thing changed even if I had my h264 libffmpe.go on /usr/lib/chromium-browser/libs/
Opera could be the linux web browser leader of all times, but it needs more attention from opera support to linux users.
Just read the review below, this is the point of view of many Opera Linux Users.. But I have to say that until now Opera Captivated me again!!.. Congratulations!

Nothing has changed in this area. If the libffmpeg.so on your system is not compatible with the major Chromium version that Opera uses, you'll have issues. That means if the libffmpeg.so on your system is updated for a new major version of Chromium before Opera updates to that new major version of Chromium, or vice versa, you're going to have issues.
The first thing you do is create a "lib_extra" folder in Opera's install folder and put the compatible libffmpeg.so with proprietary codec support in it. That way, Opera ignores the system's libffmpeg.so (that might update on you before Opera gets updated to the next major version of Chromium) and uses the specific one you've provided that you've tested to be compatible. See here. But, you still have to update the libffmpeg.so in the lib_extra folder when Opera updates to a new major version of Chromium. It 's just how it is.
Since Opera Stable, Opera Beta and Opera Developer are usually all on different major versions of Chromium, if you use all 3 of those Operas, they all three need their own lib_extra folder with a different libffmpeg.so for each. And, you have to update each of those libffmpeg.so files when each of those Operas jumpt to the next major Chromium version.
