The latest version of the Opera Developer browser now offers a free VPN and unlimited, to secure connections or bypass geographic blocks. This was made possible by their acquisition last year of SurfEasy, a VPN provider.

After proposing an ad blocker last March, Opera strikes again by integrating a totally free VPN with no speed limit. It is currently integrated only in the version of Opera reserved for developers, but it should logically make its appearance also in the general public version.

As a reminder, the VPN allow to do transit communications, usually from encrypted way, by servers that bridge the gap between the sites visited, and the end user.

Note that Opera's built-in VPN protects your browser's web session. But not surfing outside your browser, of course.
