I'm a Vivaldi user, but I do have some questions about the Opera browser. I switched over from Chrome (and before that, Firefox) so I never really used Opera.
When Opera Neon came out, I gave it a try and I liked it for the most part, but my one qualm was that I didn't like having a smaller page display screen in order to fit stuff on the sides of the screen.
From what I've heard, the features of Neon were implemented into the newer versions of Opera. Is this correct? Also, what changed between this version and the older ones?
I also have some concerns about privacy and protecting personal information as I recall reading somewhere that Opera was sold to a Chinese company. Is that still the case?
It depends what you mean by 'older ones'. If you're comparing against Opera 12, then you're talking about two completely different browsers. The Vivaldi browser would be closer to Opera 12 than the current Opera browser (Vivaldi is for power-users, Opera went in the direction of simplicity
