The latest Opera web browser now is available to install easily via Snap package in Ubuntu.

Snap is containerised software package, designed to work securely within most Linux desktop. It bundles most required dependencies and auto-updates itself.

Opera announced its snap packages for Linux users, so that you can:

In addition to Ubuntu 16.04 users who never installed snap package, you may need to install snapd first via command:

sudo apt install snapd snapd-xdg-open
