Software update: Opera 19.0.1326.47

Opera has released version 19 of its web browser of the same name. Opera switched from its in-house render engine Presto to Blink last year. This is part of Chromium, which is also used by Google Chrome, among others. Opera is available for Windows and OS X, but not yet for Linux. Version 19 uses a newer release of Chromium, among other things, we see the return of the favorites bar and it has become easier to customize the themes.
