ach... the only thing which prevents me from using opera on my mac(s) is its lack of keychain integration/support. i cannot fathom why opera doesn't have its mac team working on this, i mean, a lot of us (including myself) have hundreds of keychain entries, and there's no way i'm going to regularly use a browser unless it can read and write keychain entries... in-fact, even an importer [from keychain to wand] of some sort, would be a good step. i'm sure a lot of people would be more apt to try opera for mac, if some sort of keychain support was added.

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.

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!!

*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.

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

First, A little bit of background. Waterfox is my everyday/everything browser for a variety of reasons (like getting the tabs under the address bar where they belong). Occasionally, it has a problem with playing video, which would force me into using my back-up browser--Chrome--which I pretty much hate, except for it's video playing. In addition, I own a really old laptop which can't be updated beyond OS 10.6.8 and the only good browser still available for that OS is Opera 25. Which I used out of necessity until something weird happened; I ended up really liking it. So much so, that I installed the newest version on my OS 10.11 desktop and gave Chrome the big adios. It's fast, stable, comparatively light on memory, can run both it's own extensions and also most of Chrome's, is good with video (the detach feature is really nice). has a built-in speed dial, and a built-in, free VPN (!!!). I do have some caveats both big (you can't customize the toolbar, you can erase your browsing history, but no way to have it not saved to begin with) and small useless side bar, bookmarks all have to be one level down from the root) and super-big-time-major (no way to get tabs below address bar), so unfortunately, it's going to remain my #2.

As for your old laptop, you might try Arctic Fox: I've tried it myself a few days ago on my 10.6 32 bit machine and was amazed of its speed — it's quite as fast as the last webkit running on it, but able to display all the websites that made other old browsers freeze! (and currently being updated, apparently)

My bad: Arctic Fox has actually a 64 bit version running perfectly on 10.11, with the obvious limitations that it doesn't receive security updates Firefox does, and it has its own variation of extensions (you can't install Firefox's) — amongst which uBlock Origin, Decentraleyes, MAFF and an excellent "Advanced Night Mode". It only lacks uMatrix for my taste.
Anyway, I don't think I'll ever use it as my main browser (except for my old 32 bit machine), but at least as a light MAFF writer/reader, may be, instead of keeping around the old FF52 ESR.

Yes, ArcticFox uses a separate profile — as does New Moon (aka Pale Moon for MacOS) or Basilisk (just look in App Support ;-) ).
I've installed every one of them for testing and I've loaded them all with my basic set of extensions and they work more or less nicely (ArcticFox is the best amongst Pale Moon variants, and also the more often updated)
I've not tried importing a Firefox profile, if that's what you have in mind, though that might work, coming from a similar version number (~27.x I suppose) — don't expect to import a FF52 profile, though.
When I switched to Waterfox, after the Quantum apocalypse, I did import my FF52 profile and it worked quite well as they were very close in versioning.
Though I still use Waterfox, I'd be surprised the developer will ever release a 10.6 version as he has a hard time following FF security issues (still no fix for the latest that's been fixed in FF one month ago!) Moreover he has announced that he will soon change its base code to FF68 — which will very likely break many old addons...
