FYI: Opera actually uses the Chrome browser, or at least some of their APIs, for operation. It's the Tim Taylor version of Chrome.
Opera's rendering engine is based on the Chromium project. As far as I know, there are no other ties between Opera and Chrome...

Now, does Opera work under WinXP? Since I'm still in the stone age (and enjoying all the programs that work in XP without aggravation), that's an obvious requirement.

My solution is dual booting. My main OS is Win7 Pro 64, and the secondary is XP Pro 32 SP3.

According to the current Opera downloads requirements, Windows 7 and higher, just like everybody else.

It MAY have worked with WinXP at one time and there MAY still be a version one could download that supports it, but their download server or gateway is currently inoperative so I couldn't get to the screen where I might have been able to select a version.

No issues running it in the WinXP VM that I keep around for radio programming.

I don't know if it is still available online, but I have the full distro of Opera 49.0, build 2725.47, from late last year, which supports 32 bit XP, as a 38 meg executable.
