@leocg said in What happened to the Vivaldi servers?:
Maybe someday they will add an option for a topic's OP to set a reply as the solution and, therefore, the topic as solved.
that would be nice to be able to tag a post as the selected solution.
@mussau said in Update Opera on Sony Bravia KDL-24EX320?:
I have a Sony Bravia KDL-24EX320, which apparently runs Linux under the hood, and has Opera 12.x installed. This leads to an error page most of the time: Unable to complete secure transaction. I wonder if this is due to old certificates or something like that, and whether it would be possible to update Opera on the TV. No help on the Sony forum.
JohnOpera for TVs has been discontinued.
A page on my site is showing in google search console 1,000,000 (Million) impressions per month on that search query
Why there should be so many searches for this quesry
@sgunhouse Thinking around the android file system, I'm surprised Opera don't make a tiny webview browser like (nakedbrowser.com/android) ... they could have had the brand upfront and advertised the full operabrowser...
Or now with Oreo, an OperaGo app made up of mini type coding...?
@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.
@uxbal said in Is Opera for me?:
A couple of questions. Opera looks and behaves quite nicely. Until now, I used Chrome on Windows, but I hate how it's counterpart on Android leaves ads. It says the ads should be unobtrusive, but my experience is not so. On the other hand, I read a good review about Opera on android. Now, I like my browsers to sync, + another review I read says Opera Flow is basically the best onehanded browsing option.
But, on the other side, I'm a heavy Google product user. Is it too much of a hassle to have a browsing sync through another account and not Google or how does it work in your experience? How does Opera work in that regard with Google docs for example?
And considering it's somewhat smaller user base - is Opera secure? Is Opera sync secure?
And last - I read it's based on Chromium - so basically just redesigned Chrome, or is only the engine the same and everything else "original"?
As for the Chinese ownership, it's not ideal, bu even my HP laptop is made in China, so that's that.
But also the userbase - how big is it actually and how safe and long-lived will Opera be?
I don't make a habit out of changing browsers, so sorry for asking for first hand experience in advance! Thanks!
Opera is passing by a lot of chanages,
Few years ago, Opera was the leader, all new proposition camed out form Opera. Tabs for example, Opera was the first to introduce them then the others followed.
Now, Opera is facing some problems, and the reason is obvious MONEY.
On this point, Google hasno shame, they are using Ads and a lot o fthem, in every corner of their product.
That said, Opera is very different from Chromium and gives a completely different user experience.
So give it a try and tell us about your experience.
