People still use that?!?!



It's my daily browser, it's built on the Chrome engine, works well, and has extension support, and now VPN. 


I like it.

I use both Chrome and Opera on my laptop.


So far as mobiles devices go, Opera is the Gold standard for mobile browsers in my opinion. One very good feature is the text wrap function that reflows the text when you zoom the text. There no need to scroll right and left to read the magnified text like you have to do in most browsers.

Technically, that's NOT a VPN - it's just an http proxy, which means:

- it won't mask your IP address
- it won't encrypt your data
- it won't tunnel encrypted data
