  • When shall we see Chromecast in Opera?

  • @verybatman It has been there for a while. Try right-clicking a page and choosing Cast.

    😕 :zip: :awww:

  • The built-in ad blocker is finally worthy of replacing extensions, for example.

    The problem with built-in ad-blockers is that they get detected left and right on every second page. Using an extension which focuses on privacy (user tracking) instead of ads itself doesn't block all ads, only those with tracking attached to them (like 95 %), but allows you to still visit most sites with detection scripts. Another joke is that such an extension works faster than Opera's built-in blocker.

    BTW: Blocking user tracking should be something built into a browser.

    Another thing: The Cast function doesn't detect my Chromecast in Opera. In Google Chrome it works.

  • @jtsnet Hey, mate. One of my posts debunked that particular post of mine as I had switched back to uBlock Origin myself. The pages do indeed load noticeably faster with the extension, plus I have found that the built-in ad blocker blatantly ignores certain rules whether intentional or not. Not to mention the fact that extra CPU cycles do not matter for a modern computer unless if it were to save a little battery on a laptop.

    As for privacy filters, your comments are incorrect however. You are free to add custom filter lists whereas some have even been listed by default such as EasyPrivacy.
    Privacy filter lists also have no relation to ad blockers being detected. You could add the uBlock Protector List filter in combination with its Violentmonkey script, or you could use the discontinued Anti-Adblock Killer filter list to prevent ad blockers from being detected.

    Another thing: The Cast function doesn't detect my Chromecast in Opera. In Google Chrome it works.

    It looks like it is broken. I also get a ‘No Cast destinations found. Need help?’ notification attempting to cast YouTube on Stable.

  • What about that?

  • @zalex108 What is that supposed to do, mate?

  • Oh!
    Sorry! This seems to appear only in Opera Dev, didn't know that's a new page.

    Opera Blink Dev - Cast

    (What it's really funny it's that despite I don't have any Cast device, it has found a 6775 device and has started to install, off course has failed and doesn't appeared anymore.) O.O :lol:

  • @zalex108 Oh, yea. Are you using Developer as your main browser? Developer will not locate any devices either, and trying to cast will bring up a white box instead of the usual dialogue box here.

  • I'm using Dev for one of my profiles, I use it mostly every day, but it is not a "production" profile so usually I do not suffer any bug.

    At the other hand, you can check with a clean profile or the signature's test profile (if in Win).

  • It looks like Chromecast is in need of some polishing then. It is a little disappointing to see a broken feature present in the Stable too.

  • Ask in the blogs, maybe there is a good answer.
