Opera 40, the latest version of the Opera desktop browser for Windows includes a number of new features and improvements, One of them is a built-in VPN service that is supposed to add more privacy and security for web browsing.
In a blog post, Opera says:
When turned on, the browser VPN creates a secure connection to one of Opera's five server locations around the world. The VPN lets you choose where to appear on the internet, giving you online privacy and security a boost while making content easier to access.
We strongly believe that if more people knew how the internet truly works, they would use a VPN – and we hope that by making our browser VPN free and easy to use, it will become an essential tool for everyone.
People who want to start using the VPN feature can go to Settings, then Privacy & Security, and then finally click on the Enable VPN box. Uses can pick their specific VPN server location, or the browser can pick one based on the best network speed, latency, location and server capacity.
In addition to the new VPN feature, Opera 40 includes some new battery saving options, along with video pop-out improvements, adding RSS support to its built-in newsreader and much more.
