OPERA 60 DEBUTS WITH A FREE, FASTER VPN, AND NETFLIX HASN'T BLOCKED IT YET
April 10, 2019 / Mark Hachman
The 2016 addition of a free, unlimited VPN proxy to the Opera browser was one of the best features it had added in years. Unfortunately, the VPN was slightly too slow to be usable, and Netflix quickly blocked it. With Opera 60, the browser’s VPN has sped up—and you’re currently able to view Netflix movies from other regions, too. If you’re a cryptocurrency user, there’s another interesting feature: Opera 60 (also known as “Reborn 3,” or just R3) includes a cryptocurrency wallet, built on top of the Ethereum Web3 technology. It’s fair to say, however, that the VPN will be the primary draw. If you subscribe to Netflix, you may know that the service offers a different selection of movies and TV shows to overseas markets in some cases, new release movies that aren’t offered to U.S. viewers.
