How do I install Opera and Safari on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 32 bit? Can anyone help? Opera I downloaded but could not get it installed. On the other hand I did not try Safari, even I don't have any idea if Safari has a version for Ubuntu.

    Those are actually two questions, please open a new separate question for one of the two applications (unless you find a similar one) and edit this question, so that it only asks about the other. For Opera see askubuntu.com/q/316193/175814, for Safari see askubuntu.com/q/4959/175814. Feb 13, 2015 at 18:57
  • Valuable advice David Foerster but I downloaded Opera for 32-bit Linux. Thanks.

Safari doesn't have Linux version. But you can run it using Wine. First install Wine.

sudo apt-get install -y wine

Then create, download and build directory.

mkdir -p ~/build/safari
cd  ~/build/safari

Download Safari ( version for windows)

wget http://appldnld.apple.com/Safari5/041-5487.20120509.INU8B/SafariSetup.exe

Open using wine.

wine SafariSetup.exe

    It installs without error but unfortunately, Safari doesn't actually run. The window loads but is almost completely unresponsive and refuses to load any pages.

    Safari is no longer supported in Windows and running it with Wine will result in outdated and unpredictable browser. Not good for testing! Oct 18, 2016 at 10:05

    Note that this solution is from Aug '15, and latest Safari supported on Windows is 5.1.7 and most recent Safari version is 10.1 as of Apr 17 Apr 4, 2017 at 22:16
  • Try install microsoft core fonts if wine can't run: web.archive.org/web/20080717035040/http://… Dec 19, 2018 at 12:06

  1. The latest version of Opera 27 is only for 64-bit systems. If you want to use Opera you should choose an older version:

Opera 12.16 download link for 32-bit Linux

UPDATE: Opera restored 32-bit Linux support since Opera 35: Opera 35 32 bit

Browse Opera official site for necessary packages.

  1. Safari doesn't have Linux version.You cannot run it natively in Ubuntu.

Opera web browser comes with built-in ad blocker, battery saver and free VPN. To install Opera in all currently supported versions of Ubuntu open the terminal and type:

sudo snap install opera

Apple hasn't a version of Safari that is compatible with Wine since 2010. Microsoft Edge is similar in features to Safari and has the additional advantage that .deb files for installing Edge web browser available from Download Microsoft Insider Chnannels to easily install it in Ubuntu with the following commands:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install ./microsoft-edge-beta_101.0.1210.26-1_amd64 # replace with the name of the .deb file that you downloaded
