Opera Now Unsupported on Crave.ca

  • Before the upgrade to 60 there was no problem with Opera and the Crave streaming service, a Netflix-like service here in Canada. Now it puts up a large red banner saying the browser is unsupported. On it's FAQ page it says that supported browsers are Firefox 52+, Chrome 62+, Edge 14+. But I've discovered that it not only continues to work in Chrome but in Vivaldi as well. And even though it doesn't mention Opera there were no problems with it before the update. Anyone know why this would happen ? Because it's a little annoying having to switch to another browser for that one site. Thanks.

  • What happens if you use an extension to change Opera user agent?

  • Tried the user agent extension set to Chrome and then Firefox, same thing. Unsupported browser.

  • Did you already ask them why they no longer support Opera? What reason they gave?

  • They just say Opera is not supported and I should use Chrome. I asked them why it was working before and not now and they said I would have to ask Opera, since it's Opera that's been updated, nothing has changed with their site recently. I had assumed that supporting Chrome meant supporting Chromium based browsers in general, but since it now works with Vivaldi and not Opera that doesn't appear to be the case and something else must have changed with the recent update.
