Opera adds free built-in VPN to browser Opera has added an incredible new perk to their web browser, a free and unlimited VPN.
If you download the developer version of the browser, you "Now, you don't have to download VPN extensions or pay for VPN subscriptions to access blocked websites and to shield your browsing when on public Wi-Fi," said the company.

Opera notes that nearly 500 million people have tried or are currently running VPNs to protect their browsing and that number could jump if a significant amount of Opera's nearly 100 million active users switch over.

In addition, Opera has improved their built-in ad-blocking software, making the browser pretty formidable.
