It would be nice if Opera could step on the plate and release sooner the 32 bit Opera for Linux in the developer pipeline.
The current stable and beta version is only available for 64 bit.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!

I would like to request if possible for Opera to include the Privacy Badger Extension (https://www.eff.org/privacybadger) as an Opera adds-on. This is available in Google Chrome and Chromium so there should not be a problem adding it on the Opera browser.
Electronic Frontier Foundation, the maker of this extension also makes the HTTPS Everywhere extension which is already available as an Opera adds-on.
opera-beta_34.0.2036.16_amd64.deb is already working with Firejail (0.9.34-1) in Ubuntu 15.10 if it is invoked with the following --noprofile option :
$firejail --noprofile opera-beta
Firejail is a must especially if you have installed Flash-plugin in Opera.
From the Firejail authors' blog :
Firejail – A Security Sandbox for Mozilla Firefox, Part 1
"Chromium sandbox is similar to Firejail, it implements its own seccomp filter, but it leaves the filesystem wide open."
To give us understanding on the Chromium sandbox implementation, enter the following on the Chromium URL address bar on a plain Chromium running without Firejail.
Try to browse your home directory. Your home directory and the whole /home directory are accessible.
Now lets try running Chromium inside a Firejail via CLI or on the terminal :
$firejail --private chromium
Then access your home file directory by entering on the Chromium URL address bar
Here is another option, create a sandboxed folder in your home directory then run the following:
$firejail --private=/home/user/sandboxed chromium
Replace user with your username account, .
Access again your home file directory by entering on the Chromium URL address bar to see the difference.
The above example can also be easily done on Firefox using the File menu instead of entering on the URL address bar.
opera_12.16.1860_i386.deb is working fine with firejail.
Chromium have no problem with firejail. Opera is based on Chromium.
