Thanks for the ticket, @brasofilo!

I did some digging, and this Opera check appears to originally have come from b2 (fun!).

Since Opera now uses Chromium, I'd be curious if $is_opera related conditionals throughout core can be removed in favor of $is_chrome. Differences in the browser's behaviors should be looked into, though.

For reference, here is the official documentation for the Opera's user agent.

@brasofilo are you interested in creating a patch for this?

Thanks for taking a look, @desrosj

I discovered this when I needed a specific CSS rule for Opera (using the body_class filter). And that's because Chrome has an ongoing bug not present in Opera: we can't drag bookmarklets into the bookmarks bar since Chrome 69.
I don't think it'd be a good idea to convert $is_opera to $is_chrome, this kind of mishap among browsers is bound to happen even if everybody changes their render-engine to Chromium :)

I'm attaching the needed patch, hope the format is correct.
Checking for Opera has to be done before Chrome's so as not to give a false positive.
