7.2.5 Opera

Opera is a full-featured and standards-compliant browser. It also comes
with a built-in mail and news reader, an IRC client, an RSS/Atom feeds
reader and much more. Despite this, Opera is relatively lightweight and
very fast. It comes in two flavors: a “native” FreeBSD version and a
version that runs under Linux emulation.

To browse the Web with the FreeBSD version of Opera, install the package:

# pkg_add -r opera

Some FTP sites do not have all the packages, but Opera can still be
obtained through the Ports Collection by typing:

# cd /usr/ports/www/opera
# make install clean

To install the Linux version of Opera, substitute linux-opera in place
of opera in the example above.

The Adobe Flash plugin is not available for FreeBSD. However, a Linux®
version of the plugin exists. To install this version, the
www/linux-f10-flashplugin11 port has to be installed, then install the
port www/opera-linuxplugins:

# cd /usr/ports/www/linux-f10-flashplugin11
# make install clean
# cd /usr/ports/www/opera-linuxplugins
# make install clean

You can check the presence of the plugin: start your browser, enter
opera:plugins in the location bar and press Enter. A list should appear
with all the currently available plugins.

To add the Java plugin, follow the instructions for Firefox[0].
