Why try and out a negative spin on everything? Opera is a fine browser, and this is great news for consumers
The big question is who pays for this and how. "Free" is one of the most virulent lies of this century as the companies that utter that lie mean to say "you do not pay any MONEY". It means you pay through other means, or simply will be charged when you're well and truly wedded to it.
VPNs have a major problem for providers: it doubles bandwidth use as you need an incoming circuit as well as an outgoing circuit to the same VPN handler for it to work. Bandwidth may be ubiquitous, but it is not free, certainly not when you want to do this in any meaningful volume so at some point someone has to cough up some dough.
The question is thus what they pay this from, and why.
