Otter Browser released its first stable version, 1.0.01, last week. It is a free and open-source browser with a GPLv3 license that aims to recreate the experience of the classic Opera (12.x) UI using Qt5.

Enhancements in Otter browser 1.0.01
This stable version does not include all planned features. However, some features might be included in the 1.1 version later this year. The most important changes since the RC 12 include:
There are some enhancements in the experimental backend for QtWebEngine (Blink), which include, the download dialog is now shown for the tab that initiated it. Also, there is an added support for handling requests to print page. This release also includes many other fixes.
One issue that has not been solved is, the new browsing history backend does not store favicons yet.
