So as the title says…
Opera newest updated adds some perks…
WhatsApp Integration (use Opera for messaging)
Facebook Messenger Integration (use Opera for messaging)
@Wolveix I deserve a cookie for not posting this on the The Ball Pit
But… haven’t Opera had these features for quite a few months if not even years?
Who has used opera since they abandoned their own rendering system?
@MrPsycho I have Opera for a good while and I use it from time to time, toda it updated and showed those as being part of the update.
The VPN is new for sure, the others… not so sure.
@WSS I used it sometimes when I want to check if cookies or cahce is messing with me. I use Firefox and Chrome regularly… so Opera is the one for the “checksum”.
Gotta say that lately, everytime i use Opera, it feels lighter than Chrome and Firefox…
Bring back Firebird 0.52, Netscape 0.9N, and Spyglass Mosaic.
Umm… You must have been running a very outdated Opera then (probably the legacy branch). VPN was one of the first things from the list introduced. I can find articles on the VPN dated at 2016. Pretty sure the messeging integrations were there for at least a year too. The crypto wallet was introduced I believe in Opera 60, which is dated May 2019.
The Free VPN? not route it thru a VPN.
Sorry @Wolveix , here goes the cookie back to you …
Is it an actual vpn or (like with nordvpn etc) just a webproxy? There is a difference. Still nice EpicBrowser also comes with Free Encrypted Proxy and Adblocker + Antitrack It’s been my preference for a while. For comfort I often use chrome too, though. So yeah. One is chrome. One is built on chrome.
That’s why I dropped Opera… I used it from 2001ish until 2012. Even paid for a license back when it cost money. When they switched to Chromium, they removed so many of the features that made Opera unique (like tab stacking). I know some of the features have come back, but I’m not sure if all the features are there, even today.
I hear that Vivaldi has a lot of the old Opera features, but I haven’t tried it in a long time.
