This is a good browser. Based on Chromium, but has some of its own solutions and additional functions. This is currently, in my opinion, a very good alternative to Chrome. It's fast, it also has synchronization of passwords and bookmarks. Works fine on Mac. Of course, there is no such extensive testing system as Google Chrome and sometimes there are bugs in stable versions.

What has got into the Opera browser in the past days? Earlier, I could select a word or a phrase and right-click to search with Google, but when I do so now, the browser suddenly crashes. It goes like this after I installed the most recent update. Does anyone out there know how come?

Hmmm... I updated via the in-browser automatic update, and after completion, no sites would load. I attempted to restart, and only got an "application cannot be opened" message.

I trashed that version, downloaded the update again from here, and manually installed. It now works perfectly (I'm using it to type this). But with that issue and your issue something is obviously wonky about this update. I guess I suggest reinstalling... Dunno, it worked for me.

Hi kingjj!
Sorry, but I have now downloaded and reinstalled the Opera software in the latest possible version, but it keeps crashing when I select a word or a phrase and then click on Search with Google. I surrender!

Sorry, it was merely a guess. My search bar is set to duckduckgo, but I switched to google and couldn't replicate the problem. The browser tried to update to today's version, and everything crashed and refused to restart again. Except this time, the link here didn't work, I had to download the installer from Opera's site. Is this going to keep happening with every update? I mean, sometimes they update three times a week...

My Opera browser would not update beyond Version 62.0.3331.18 and their website only shows the .18 version as of July 4th. But this newer version says .43 so I downloaded it and installed it and all seems fine.

After many many many years I am finally giving up on Opera. I started with Version 3 which was one of their first browsers. At that time Opera invented tabbed browsing and had other very innovative stuff going on. That was why I remained a dedicated fan. But no more once I found out Opera is now Chinese owned and there are security concerns. Quote: "Opera started off as a decent browser, developed in Norway. However, in 2016 it was sold to a Chinese consortium for $600 million – and a lot has changed. Opera’s privacy policy explains how your data is being collected and shared when you use Opera products:" This is my source and you can read about safe browsers here: https://restoreprivacy.com/secure-browser/ And it's quite ironic that the next guy thorpesimon1 in the comments here is complaining that he is bothered by Chinese language stuff in his Opera browser and an annoying pop-up that auto-translates his search result to Chinese. Go figure. Bye bye Opera, we had a lot of fun together but I'm moving on.

Well, your source makes a few king-sized leaps (from a "concerning" privacy policy--to proof-positive their vpn is a data vacuuming proxy server--their source? Reddit...)

Anyway, the concerning privacy policy is enough, no need to overplay the hand...

The rub? Opera is really nice... Hell. I was having trouble with Thunderbird on my Windows machine so I tried their e-mail client and IT'S really nice. their browser is quick, very light on RAM, and understands that a "search/copy/share" pop-up when you select text is something the user never thought they needed, but really, really appreciates now that they have it.

This is my goto, default, browser. Never had any problems. However, what's with all the Chinese language? I've altered the preferences to suite me, but the choice of search engines is limited to mostly Chinese companies. This, this explains why a lot of search results are rendered in Chinese, I suppose. And, please .., how do I get rid of that annoying pop-up window that auto-translates anything English into Chinese? The preferences need to actually work.
Lastly, what happened to the really cool built-in VPN?

With the reviews all wishing a preference, it is my turn to give an honest review, as I not only belong to the opera community, but Vivaldi, and Brave as well. This morning opera updated itself, and I watched. Not a problem, crash, or excessive use of memory. Like Cliqz, and Brave, opera has most of what you need already installed. When I first installed opera, it, by using, taught me the correct way to import bookmarks; under bookmarks I simply opened that, and the bookmarks were not only imported, but put in the toolbar as well. Next, I configured opera to my needs; having cerebral palsy, I found it had a "popup tool"so that, when I copy for example, I have a window, that gives me this option. Opera is conservative on memory; it loads quick, without hiccups or any crashes PERIOD. I saw a review stating the amount of memory used; it was completely conservative, and DID NOT HOG DOWN MY SYSTEM OR MEMORY. When you use a browser as a rule, third party apps or extensions will conflict; in my case being prudent was the issue.. Unlike Vivaldi, opera comes with little or no baggage; again, it comes with in most cases, with everything you need. Opera has been upgraded many times; each update has been like bread and butter or peanut butter and jelly; smooth simple, and fast. With the use of the built in VPN, you will notice a slight slowness, but it does not bother me. There is a lot this browser has; it DOES NOT have an interface of a lot of baggage. One last thing; when I receive an update; I always do a "clean install" to get rid of the gremlins. I could go on with praising this browser, and the China issue does not bother me, because I prudently learned what is installed and where!!

AFAICT, v60 is perfectly working. I like the (selectable) dark interface. What I still miss, though: - profiles (there's a workaround with Terminal or programming a shortcut, but why not making it as simple as Chromium? :-o — especially now that Vivaldi finally did it!) - customizable toolbar (you'd better not use too many extensions...)

"- customizable toolbar (you'd better not use too many extensions...)"

Right click the extension you want out of the toolbar --> Hide Extension

That said, the ability to customize the rest of it would be nice...

Yes that's my point, you can hide the icons for extensions you don't need access to, but no way to resize or move anything else.

I dislike giving a bad rating but at least an angry comment is necessary, at least as 'warning' to the developer! I was using by time Opera Developer, happy to can contribute to its growth BUT suddenly the (nowadays for AL:L browsers!) NECESSARY synchronisation feature dropped. "Ok" I said "let us stop to HELP them and let us use the 'stable' version BUT now it doesn't work even on it!!! Besides this, every time I have (NECESSARILY!) to reinstall it, all my (many!) extensions goes lost and I have to make a painful reload of each of them! So I had to stop to use Opera as default browser to switch on Firefox Nightly and Vivaldi Snapshot.

*Sigh* After a month of using Opera as my primary browser, I REALLY would like to make it my everyday/everything browser replacing Waterfox. If for no other reason than one look at the activity monitor: After a couple days of running Opera, it's using 180mb of RAM. A couple of days running Waterfox, it's using 1.5gb... The rub? How does Opera make money?? No one seems to know for sure. although there are PLENTY of ugly rumors (mostly pertaining to it's initial purchaser, a Chinese "consortium" Golden Brick Capital Private Equity Fund, although Kunlun Tech Limited is it's current largest shareholder). They boast that they made 44.7 million last year, but give no indication how exactly that was done. Even their investor PowerPoint presentation only addresses monetization in the vaguest of terms. I'm bringing all this up because I really don't think whether or not a browser works well is the whole issue anymore. Hell, almost all browsers stem from one of two source codes, they all pretty much "work well." How exactly they work, and who they're working for is becoming more and more the issue. The person behind Waterfox makes it perfectly clear how he makes money, and that nothing is done with the data collected by the browser. Opera, despite it's technical perks (and some of those perks are quite large), gives no indication and makes no such claims. And unfortunately, that minus offsets the pluses.

You're damn right. Also the integrated VPN is pure genius but if it implies that all your activity and passwords end up who knows where... :-/
I'm still relying too on Waterfox and Ungoogled Chromium (Marmaduke's build) — the best option I know for privacy, it doesn't even connect to Chrome services... ;-) (if you happen to use it, keep one of Marmaduke's other builds around, if you need to sync or access to Chrome webstore, etc.)

Not surprisingly, the built-in VPN (which as you stated, is a VERY attractive feature) is the source of the ugliest of rumors.

It's also the source of one of it's more irritating bugs. In that, if the browser drops the VPN connection for whatever reason, it does nothing to reconnect, and states that you have no internet connection. Furthermore, restarting the VPN does nothing, you have to restart the entire browser for it to reconnect.

Anyway, Opera now comes packaged with a five minute video about how you're 'sticking it to the man' by using it. But, there's still no indication exactly who Opera's sticking it to...

That's what I want to see a five minute video about
