Opera is the most popular browser in many regions of the CIS. The popularity is due to an intuitive interface and a small load on hardware. In addition, the browser has excellent performance indicators when compared with other leaders such as Google Chrome, Mozzila, Yandex, etc.
For quite a long time, when the word “opera” is mentioned, the younger generation remembers the browser and not the branch of high art. The browser originates from 1994, and this is the average age of current IT specialists. At the same time, it is difficult to call the browser “young”, the browser timeline is long, which means that product updates are regular.
The browser has long been adapted to the most popular operating systems such as Windows, Linux, and macOS, as well as Solaris, and FreeBSD. However, the browser is adaptable not only for computer use but also for mobile devices based on Symbian OS, MeeGo, Java, Android, Windows Mobile, bada, and iOS.
Opera has been distributed as a free product since 2005. The mobile version originates from 2010.
On the territory of Russia, the browser is on the list of ARI (information dissemination organizers), thanks to Roskomnadzor, of course. This status has many different legal features, but the most important is that the government can request from the corporation the data that they have stored, and they do not dare to refuse. There are several ways to get around such a dirty trick, but we will give the simplest one further. And besides, the opera itself is not very keen to disseminate data about its clients, even if the request comes from the top of the government.
Using proxy servers, you can get rid of many ailments of a different nature that may be associated with Opera, and if you are from the Russian Federation, then also with one government agency.
Privileges will undoubtedly be the basic set of functionality of the proxies themselves:
Improve connectivity and network speed
Possibility of automation and multi-accounts on many web resources
ISP tracking bypass
Ignoring many regional and other types of blocking and restrictions.
Of course, you need to understand that not every proxy server will be a great option to use. As the main ones, only two can be distinguished: free and paid proxies. Let’s analyze each in more detail.
Free, they are public proxies that have only one positive thing in their stock: they do not require financial investments in their operation. Actually, at this point, only problems begin. To find a really good option that does not harm you or disappear in a couple of hours, you will have to spend a lot of time and nerves. We do not recommend it.
Paid proxies are also private, a complete mirroring of their protégé. All the basic functions of the proxy are preserved and work normally, confidence in their performance is beyond doubt. Of the minuses: they are paid. Prices are never cosmic because the product is in great demand on the market and absolutely everyone can afford them.
There remains the last point of this topic. Step-by-step proxy settings for the Opera browser:
Open the Opera browser, and then go to the main menu of the application, at the top of the browser panel. In the menu, we select the “Settings” item:
Going to the settings section, we need to open the “Browser” field, and then move to the “Network” field. In the network, we find the button “Change proxy settings” and click on it.
Go to the «Connections» tab.
Click on the «Network Settings» button.
In the settings window that opens, check the boxes as shown in the photo below. In the fields “Address” and “Port”, enter the relevant information for the selected proxy server.
