Free VPN feature comes to Opera browser

Here’s an awesome new feature that might convince you to move over to the Opera browser. Opera recently announced that the developer version of its browser now features a built-in VPN client. That’s important, using a VPN is recommended if you want to surf the web safely and quietly. I currently use Private Internet Access, but that costs me an annual fee.

Opera’s built-in VPN features 256-bit encryption and can be activated by simply tapping the “OI” menu and accessing settings in the developer version of the browser. If you’re on a Mac, just open up the preferences menu. In settings, you’ll be able to choose your location (great if you’re trying to watch out-of-market baseball games, by the way).

Only three locations are available, which isn’t as many as other services. You’ll be able to pick from Germany, the USA or Canada as your location. Still, for free, this is a great option.
