Thats an interesting development with all the privacy stuff recently. Theres not much info in that link on how it will work though.
Im wondering how it could be financed/set up. We've all used free VPNs im sure and they are always slow and overloaded. So for this to work for all opera users surely its going to cost good chunk of money to keep running?
That's my thought as well. For this to be fast enough to want to use it, it's going to require a lot of infrastructure on Opera's end. I wonder what their plan for monetization is. Are they just trying to increase users?
Cool, opera is currently my default browser so this is a great addition that I'm looking forward too!
cool, just read it in some blogs,
So what impacts do this have on IM... Imagine firefox will integrate it too. Same xxx IP clicks on google ad, etc... :>
They mentioned that they are in some kind of partner ship with companies. So I'm guessing they are going to be getting some kind of commission from the sales they get for the companies they partnered with.
Can we change the location in that built-in VPN?
But who will need to buy a VPN if they're giving them away for free? It's not even a particularly good loss leader because streaming services will block these free VPNs so it won't drag in people who want to increase their speed, unless they want to try and normalise VPN usage entirely.
They say it's to access blocked websites, so I assume so.
How Opera browser as a whole?
I remember using it on mobile but...
Good to know, this will help me a lot!
Thanks for the info man!
Because people will want more speed with a vpn, and not the slow speeds that a free one will have. Or the limited monthly bandwidth.
To be honest i use firefox due to better safety and installed hola VPN for chrom and direfox,today i will download opera and will see if it works.it will be good for making multiple web2.0 IMO.
Remember that Opera has recently been bought for a billion dollars by a CHINESE firm.
Why does it matter if its a Chinese firm or a firm from any other country?
You need to read more on the Chinese companies in the consortium that bought Opera.
Its an investment group, I really don't see the problem.
Nice way to get people to use their browser
If your in the VPN business then this must be bad news.
For Black hatters wanting to have different VPN's for social media accounts etc then this must be great news.
Its going to be heavily abused and become very slow, people will still need good VPN services.
