Never had a problem. with Opera. When you use any web browser on a Mac device you are using Web Kit.There are many vulnerabilities in the software, Mac will not allow alternative browsers ,no app store browser.Big Tech is monopolistic and greedy, Apple allows the Chinese State to snoop on the iPhone,if it refused it loses millions of customers.

I don't know what to think about how mush you can trust Opera, being owned by a Chinese company... This is a legitimate concern, but most of our computers and stuff being built in China, how can you be sure that your toaster is not spying on you? ;-) Well, jokes apart, I don't use it as my main browser, and I must say that this concern is a great part of the reason why. But anyway, I find it a great browser with lots of features, and the new v100 is even greater! Nice looking, fast. If it was not because of Uncle Xi, I would surely try using it extensively.

AVOID! The CCP (Chinese Communist Party) wants your identity, and everything else it can lay its digital hands on. They've been documented hacking-the-world since 1998. AVOID! (Opera is owned by a Chinese conglomerate. Every company running within China, no exceptions, must provide the CCP with any and all data requested, no exceptions). There are far better and safer browsers.

Well, I still run El Capitan (11.6). MacUpdate states OS X 10.11 or later, as minimum configuration, but downloading version 96.0.4693.20 does not work. As the most VPN Programms require at least MacOS 13, I cannot use them. Which is the latest version of Opera that runs with 11.6 and has it VPN? Thank you

Takes a little bit to boot on my old Mac2015 using Monterey12.6.1 but worth the wait. To use the built in VPN go to Opera - Preferences - Features - VPN and click to enable. Works a dream and when it is on you can either let it chose a location or you can change it to one of your choice in the address bar (click on the blue VPN box). Various websites I've used confirm the configurations altering globally as I change them. As a retired IT teacher I've been using Opera for quite a period of time. It is a memory hog however and once a week I use CCleaner to clean it up.

After doing a little research, I see that Opera is owned by a Chinese venture capital firm since 2016. I wouldn't trust my data being secure, and it may have been purchased with the intention of leveraging its reputation for security. A reference also indicated that at one point what they were representing as a VPN was not actually a VPN in terms of level of security. I'm suspicious now of articles that highly recommend this browser.

I stopped using this for a while and switched to another browser, but came back to give it another go. There are still some issues: 1. I had to use Firefox to set-up my Opera account. Not a good start. 2. The VPN is still missing. I downloaded from the extensions store, but the browser doesn't seem to want to install it. There's nothing in preferences about a VPN either. This should appear as a blue button to the left of the search bar, but it's nowhere to be seen. 3. Upon launch, a pop-up warning keeps appearing saying "Opera unexpectedly quit." But it's still running. 4. Speed used to be one of the things I loved about Opera. Microsoft Edge and Firefox seem way faster ... dunno why ....

Opera still doesn't work with M1 macbooks! Just get firefox or brave. Also check out ZuriWeb, a mini web browser on your menu bar. One of the best productivity tools i've used.
