@SilentHugOfDoom i would highly recommend ublock origin over the built in one. it is significantly better, especially for video ads, ad block reminders and you have much more control over what you want to block or blacklist.
there is no performance difference that i can notice, if anything ublock origin uses less.
install it from the chrome store, as i have found the opera store version takes a few more days to update
@fonm I do not understand. I have activated the VPN at the operating system level. With Firefox I can navigate safely. In Opera do I have to manually set the proxy to be able to navigate? It seems absurd to me. In any case which proxy should I enter?
Let's talk about latest and greatest in Opera world: experimental builds, beta and developer versions

New Opera's flag easy-files-more-files - disabled by default (work in progress)

Known issue: in the Player feature in the Sidebar, normally the audio is paused, when a tab plays its own audio, after that the audio resumes automatically. Currently, when the audio in a tab is muted, the Player doesn't resume. This should be fixed soon.
@leocg said in Opera turbo with https connections?:
@tempale Basically privacy and security.
I do not need privacy I need to save traffic. I want to choose what I need.
However, I no longer use the opera (and for this reason in particular)
@sgunhouse Yes, that's it. It's more of a progressive thing however, if I am watching it the audio isn't out of sync with the film/tv show to begin with, but it slowly becomes out of sync, refreshing the page fixes that but only for a short while. I have only recently started using Opera, so I am unsure whether this could be due to an option that I could select in order to stop this from happening.
@rudrick said in How to modify the speed dial to look branchy, instead of tiles?:
Speaking of Speed dial - I miss Stash.
I use the Pocket extension for this purpose. You could also use the sidebar extension, V7 Stash. They both work excellently.
@bwall said in Location issues:
The Opera 48.0 Help page says
Settings > Preferences > Advanced > Network and uncheck "Enable automatic redirection".
But there is no such option!
Can you please tell me how exactly have you found this help page that says that? I am trying to reproduce but I don't see it if I open Help from within Opera 48.
Where I do see such suggestion it is on old Help pages for Opera 12 (Presto) - but you have to google that page up...
Thank you for the support and tips.
All you were right: one extension was leaking the real IP by WebRTC. For my surprise was "Privacy Badger" of EFF.
This extension set "Use default public network interfaces only" as default. In this option de real IP of ISP leaks.
For curiosity I also tried "Use default public and private network interfaces only" and "Use any suitable network interface (recommended)". Both leaked my ISP's IP and local router IP.
Thank you a lot!
@garypen Well I have tried it in the past (about a year ago) but mainly I don't like the forced Windows 10 look of it and I'm used also to Opera's method of creating thumbnails for the Speed Dial items, although I liked a lot that in Vivaldi you could have as many Speed Dials you 'd want to, contrary to Opera where it gets confusing and untidy if you have many. It shouldn't have any peformance problems (I found this also http://www.digitaljournal.com/internet/op-ed-vivaldi-s-new-version-1-12-browser-worth-trying/article/505723 confirming it), and its bookmarks method in a tree amongst many other things are more on the classic path of Opera Presto or Firefox.
