I go to Google photos often through Opera and there has been some kind of update on Google's end apparently and now it doesn't function through Opera. It works find in Chrome and FF. I have already deleted everything (cache, cookies, history, etc.) and that didn't help at all. I get "This page isn't working ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS" As I mentioned, I don't have this problem with any other browsers and this just happened in the last day or so. It has been working fine. I'm running windows 10. Everything is up to date as far as all my drivers, etc.
It would be great if Opera could take over a function of Firefox. I often open several links from other apps and read them later. Firefox collects links and displays them the next time Firefox are opened (Only if the function has been activated).
Sorry if I created the thread in wrong subforum.
Neither Opera Touch, nor Opera Mobile see currently opened tabs on my desktop Opera until I start My Flow feature by pressing on the sidebar icon. Then all is working correctly.
Same thing is with Whatsapp. It should sync in the background as soon as I start desktop Opera - as should My Flow.
In short: Opera is not syncing automatically and I cannot figure out why (all flags are set on default).
Windows 10 / always most up to date Opera beta and dev.
@alucard1360 Unfortunately, a censorship agency has the same capability as you or I of downloading and installing a VPN program or a VPN-capable browser like Opera. Then, by analyzing its traffic with a packet-sniffer, they can determine the IPs used to contact the VPN servers and block those at IP/censorship Internet routing servers. Alternatively, they can observe the packet headers associated with VPN protocols and block/interfere that way. Almost as fast as a VPN maker changes and deploys new VPN server IPs to its user VPN programs/modules, a determined censor can also update, analyze, and block the new IPs. In that case, about the best one could hope for would be to obtain short-term relief in the interim between deployment of new IPs and the censors completing their analysis and slamming shut the new doors.
There are ways of covertly tunneling encrypted data between a computer and an otherwise innocuous-appearing IP (ie: one not normally VPN-associated), but it requires the full, advance cooperation of that innocent-appearing IP site, and is well beyond the scope of general-distribution VPN tools.
