  • Hi all I have a few questions, I'm looking to move from Vivaldi to Opera for stability reasons. Vivaldi can sometimes cause my entire windows OS to slow down to halt. (I know its Vivaldi because if I quit it then Windows becomes snappy responsive again instead of painfully slow - and I'm not near my RAM usage limit either when it happens)

    is there anything superior - e.g. speed about opera's built in ad blocker vs an extension like ad guard? or is it essentially just an extension as well, so playing by the same rules?

    how can I open web pages in the sidebar?

    At the moment, you can't. In Opera developer builds, you can enable an experiment that allows users to add sites to the sidebar.

  • Hello. 🙂
    Why is my Opera program icon on the bottom menu - red? I don't like it. How can I manage that?!obraz_2020-09-29_133533.png

  • @MonikaP As a research would probably have told you, it usually means that you have a broken download on your download list.

  • @narutikli64 Regarding the adblocker, I guess the best thing would be to test it for a few days.

    There is an experimental feature that allows you to add sites to the sidebar.

  • does desktop opera version 73 include a vpn? a website I use has now required the use of a vpn for the news site I use. No Free vpn I tried works for various reasons I do not understand. does Opera's really work or am I locked out of the content provided by a specific website? as of now I need to use a different website to access the same news site. solutions please. I will try Opera to access the same news site and see what happens. it will be a yes or no. no other choices or fixes.

  • @rtrg-0 Yes, Opera for desktops still has a VPN feature.
