You know that search engines circumvent the VPN by default in Opera?
Ridiculous default of course, that goes for much more in Opera.
[The most serious thing is that Opera starts by default as a scheduled task to check for updates.
In practice, this means that every time Windows Opera starts up, it always checks automatically for updates.
How you dare to call yourself a privacy browser remains a mystery to me.
By the way, Brave and I think Chrome (you can find it anywhere in Windows where you don't want it anyway) as well.
Actually it's a pity Opera doesn't have these things in order, in itself it's a pretty nice browser.]
