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 ....

Is the Opera VPN only available to Windows users? It's not downloading / installing for me (MacBook Pro, 10.13) Previous versions worked.

Recent updates have resulted in "You can't open the application […] because it may be damaged or incomplete." Sticking with Edge for now.

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.

Doesn't work with Big Sur/M1 MacBook pro. It will not play videos on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Acorn Tv. Used to be my favorite browser. Now it's unusable.

I really wanted to switch from Firefox to Opera, but then I discovered that you cannot delete its 6 default search engines! They appear in the contextual menu (right-click), and you cannot get rid of them. A deal-breaker for me.

It's become totally non-usable for me! All of the last few updates won't even allow me to have it open for 15 minutes, before it goes into total meltdown! I runs up 100% of CPU usage, lots of RAM, freezes up and must be force quit, to continue using my computer! This happens on both my desktop & laptop, which have different operating systems, so I don't think it's an issue with my machine(s), but something very buggy with the browser. I sure wish they would make it more dependable...

Opera used to be special. Now it is just a wrapper around chromium. For those that care about such things: in 2016 the Norwegian company changed ownership when a group of Chinese investors purchased the web browser, consumer business, and brand of Opera Software ASA.

Opera worked much better before I updated from Mac Catalina to Big Sur. Now when I open a tab I get a blank page for several seconds or the same if I return to an open tab. It's like having too little memory, but my Mac Mini has 16GB RAM and an i5 processor.

I don't know what's going on here. At first, it wouldn't let me install. After googling, I found out other Mac users were having the same issue, and you have to go to their download page and find the download link in tiny writing that says "offline mode" or something like that. So, download the offline version and can't access a single website. For every website it says: "Try: Checking the connection Checking the proxy and the firewall" I don't have any proxies and I'm only using the built-in Mac firewall. Into the bin it goes, waste of time.

MacUpdate Admin!!! There is a problem with this latest version - msg from both Firefox and Chrome upon trying to complete the download (and on Opera's server): 'This file may be dangerous, so Chrome has blocked it.'

Problem persists - download fails at Opera's server at around 80% finished with a "This file may harm your computer" msg - which is probably just automatic from the browser. I emailed Opera.com Support. Also, there is almost a 5MB size discrepency with their file and the one on MacUpdate.

there's a problem - both on MacUp and on Opera's site, the download is corrupted - one would hope this would have been tested on their server prior to general release notification ..........
