Opera may be lagging behind the more popular browser choices today, but it hasn't given up on rewarding its loyal users with new features. Version 35 for computers has just been released, and with it comes the ability to mute tabs easily, so you don't have to hunt for the one that has randomly starting playing a video. If you are playing one video and want to mute all others, you can also do that via the menu that pops up when you right click on a tab.
The latest version also comes with a better download interface with quick links to common file types like PDF, documents, images, music and video. Plus, the browser now notifies you if your download's done. Finally, Opera has added the ability to change themes and startup behavior, among other elements of the browser, right from within the Settings page.
