Opera announced the upcoming addition of a free unlimited virtual private network
to its Opera Browser for Windows
, or Linux
. Although its not yet integrated into the public version of the browser, you can currently try it out by downloading the Opera Developer browser
. (Links to download this version are in the "Latest Downloads" box on the left side of the page.) That's the first major browser we've seen with a free unlimited VPN directly incorporated into its software; VPNs are typically only available through browser extensions or paid subscription services. The VPN allows users to browse the web with a virtual IP address, allowing for better online privacy and security, in addition to accessing geo-blocked websites, such as streaming media providers.
