Opera performs regular checks to make sure you know about the latest, most secure version and will silently update your browser for you.
Updates occur when you open the browser — you do not need to do anything to stay constantly up-to-date. Opera advises that you do quit the browser every once in a while to allow for updates.
New viruses and spyware appear all the time, so it is vital to keep your installed anti-virus and anti-spyware software updated regularly.
Ensure that you update other applications and plug-ins to ensure you have the most stable and secure versions.
To check the plug-ins you currently have installed, type
opera:plugins in the address field
and press Enter.
