A few days ago I installed Opera 16 on a new (fast) machine. (Previously been using Opera 12.16 on old machine.) Today I opened Opera and a bunch of other programs and whilst Opera was already behind other windows a small alert popped up stating something along the lines of "a new version of Opera is ready to be installed, install now?". In my morning-ness I happily clicked "Yes" and before I could even blink, let alone switch back to Opera, it had seemingly installed - or had it?!
As far as I'm aware it didn't restart or anything like that? I'm on version 16.0.1196.80 - but this was released 12 days ago according to filehippo!? In fact, I can't tell that anything has actually updated! Which makes me rather concerned that it wasn't really Opera that was prompting me to begin with, but something else far more malicious!?
Is this how Opera updates these days?
How can I tell it has been updated? Or when?
Can I disable this "auto-update" thing? (Although it would seem to have gone more Chrome-like in this respect - *sigh*)
