No, I'm not from Opera. I'm just long-time Opera user, and it was the first browser I used as IE alternative 15 years ago.
Opera VPN is free for everyone. And it works. So Opera delivered what they promised, they don't deceive people. But it is not good as some other more expensive solutions. Which is also fine, since Opera didn't tell this will be the best VPN service in the world
I'm going off topic, but there are many other services which are free for everyone but not as good as more expensive ones. I am also paying for mail service, since free ones are not good for me. Bilions of people are using gmail, outlook or yahoo mail for free. And I can't say Gogole, MS or Yahoo are deceiving people just because their service is not good enough for me.
So, in my opinion, Opera is the best browser currently, sicne it has many features other browsers lack. I don't use all of them, but it doesn't mean those are not useful for some people.
