Opera 22 has moved from Developer to Next stream and now available to download for Windows and Mac. This version brings silent update, means Opera browser will be updated to the latest version automatically without showing the UAC dialog which avoids intervention from the user.

"On Windows our new silent update allows for a more seamless update to the latest version. There are no buttons to click and no UAC (User Account Control) dialog interrupting your workflow. You will be automatically updated to ensure you always have the most recent and most secure Opera version."

Updates for Opera will be delivered in Small patches instead of full packages, thus your bandwidth will be saved.

The Opera  desktop team has added few new themes to suit Opera UI, if you want more, you can find and add them from here
