[CentOS] Opera browser on CentOS

Although not on CentOS, I have run Opera for some time as a result of my dislike of some of the politics elsewhere.  It has some unique features but I have not found it to be as compatible as Firefox, there are situations where it does not work and Firefox does.  Unfortunately I haven't gone to the effort to categorize those experiences, they aren't too frequent.

Not familiar with those yet but curious if the browser is worthwhile to run. I have generally found Firefox less useful/compatible than Chromium but would also like alternatives, particularly since Opera defaults to a VPN-connection.

It is available in opera's yum repository:

name=Opera packages

I only run it very occasionally, in cases where I want a second login
session to AWS that's different from my primary Firefox session, etc.
