Enable plug-ins only on demand.

It stops flash items from running, so it majorly cuts down on ads, which basically removes the threat of Flash exploits and increases battery life. For the things you do want to play, just click the big play button.

Opera Browser Now Offers Free and Unlimited Built-in VPN Service

Look like it's not unlimited:

Opera will currently continue to run the SurfEasy VPN service as is (a free service is available with 500MB per month data limit, with premium services at the lower end of the VPN price spectrum)

And Opera was bought by a Chinese company

I've always used Chrome, but the interface is too small compared to other browsers (my eyesight is poor without glasses). I decided to check out Opera after reading this thread - everything's good so far.

I found this little add on that lets you download any Chrome extension, which can be useful: https://addons.opera.com/en-gb/exten...e-extension-9/

A Chinese VPN should be better for some users I think.

Opera is the fastest and almost the best, except that the don't have the classical drop-down menu for bookmarks (as Firefox does). So I wonder how do people manage their bookmarks with Opera (or Chrome as well) when you have hundreds of them in 15 different folders...

That's why I use Opera for videos or when I need speed, but Firefox as my core browser. The same goes for their add-on system, which is much more user-friendly on Firefox.

Skadi Award: Being the most prestigious award on Skadi Forum, the Skadi Award is bestowed upon those who, being outstanding contributors of particular importance, have been long standing supporters of Skadi Forum and its community, in good and in bad times. - Issue reason: Excellent, original and thought-provoking contributions over a period of several years; outstanding performance as a moderator and active participation in the Staff Forum; repeated defense of Skadi and its staff on Skadi Forum and on other sites. 
I'll have to look into the implications of that, since I've been using Opera for the best of eight years now, almost to the exclusion of anything else, and since I've always been a happy user thereof, it'd be hard switching away to something else.

It's based on opera. Didn't try it yet, but it sounds good.
