RE: IS VPN with problem now?Opera for computers
I've been using Opera VPN for a while and, aside from the sites that simply block it, performance has been fine. That changed earlier today. Pages are slow to load (like being on dial up) and streaming quality is poor (when I turn off VPN and reload the quality is fine). Not sure what's changed, though it looks like I'm on a new VPN version now (judging from the different list of virtual locations).
MacOS High Sierra 10.13.2
RE: Searching with Google (address bar or google.com): Captchas or full blockOpera for Mac
@sgunhouse Is it Opera VPN specifically, or any VPN? Either way, changing address bar search to Bing works for now.
Searching with Google (address bar or google.com): Captchas or full blockOpera for Mac
Google has become very frustrating to use with Opera/VPN. Much of the time I either need to slog through several select-all-images-with-roads captchas, or get blocked straight away ("We're sorry, but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.") This may or may not be related to the fact that Google thinks I'm in the Ukraine, though I never have this problem with Opera/VPN for iOS.
VPN set to USA, Google presents results in UkranianOpera for Mac
When I use VPN (virtual location: USA), Google defaults to Ukranian and presents results in the Cyrillic alphabet. I've tried a few different virtual location settings, and some work (like Netherlands reverts to google.nl) but for USA (and several other location settings) it reverts to google.com.ua (Ukraine). Any idea how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
