Opera VPN = HTTPS proxy setup.

  • So the opera browser VPN is actually a HTTPS proxy and not a real VPN, but for performance purposes - it seems to work really well.
    unfortunately my ISP blocks the domains opera uses to connect to this https proxy and I wanted to know how I can setup a HTTPS proxy of my own and use with browser like Opera or firefox.

    does someone have experience with this? i dont need encryption, just high performance.

  • So Opera VPN is a browser proxy, well all I can say is that it is a very good one
    and is many, many times better than nothing, very convenient and it is free.

    I use it all the time and feel really happy that my IP and personal details are
    completely hidden in some fictitious location elsewhere on the planet.

    If you are paranoid about security, then life on the Internet must be really miserable.
    I use Sandboxie a virtual environment program, Avast my AV, PrivateFirewall my firewall
    and Opera with its VPN/proxy. If security demands more than that, then quite frankly
    "to hell with it".

    This question is not really relevant to a browser Forum, but better asked on a computer Forum.
    I suggest you post it on - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/
