  • Hello,

    Opera has been using Chrome as an engine for quite some time. I'm afraid there are still problems. The user agent is probably not quite correct yet?

    After logging in to a message appears that the browser is not compatible.

    It would be great if Opera could identify as Chrome.

  • Opera is based on Chromium, just like Chrome, Vivaldi and other browsers.

    If Amazon is blocking Opera, it would be better to contact them.

    You can use an extension to change Opera's user agent and try to bypass problems caused by sites due to browser sniffing.

  • Goto opera://about and take note of the Browser Identification string.

    Then, for testing purposes, right-click on "C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" and choose to create a shortcut on your desktop. Right-click the shortcut and goto "properties". On the "Shortcut" tab, edit the "Target" field to set a custom user-agent string. You want all of the string except for " opr" (notice the space) and everything after it. For example:

    "C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" "--user-agent=Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/68.0.3440.106 Safari/537.36"

    Launch Opera like that and see if it works. If it does, then you know you need an extension to do that. There's this one that does it for all sites. There are others that can do it on a per-site basis. Some of them haven't been updated to use modern strings though.
