Opera for computers gets animated and delivers more privacy and convenience

Oslo, Norway - September 15, 2015

With a new bookmark tree view, password synchronization and animated themes, as well as a convenient SurfEasy VPN download option, the latest version of Opera for computers brings you more privacy, convenience, and personalization options.

More privacy

Recent findings from Opera’s research shows that people really do care about privacy in the web, but they either don’t know about advanced privacy tools or find them too complex to use. We decided to do something about that. Now, when you open a private window, or a security badge in the address field, you will find a link to download SurfEasy, a VPN service owned by Opera. It allows you to surf the web safely, privately and anonymously, from anywhere in the world.

More convenience

In Opera you can already sync your tabs, bookmarks and browser data across devices. Now, the sync options are complete with the addition of password synchronization. Select “Passwords” in the new settings panel, and log in to your service accounts across different computers.
 
If you have a lot of bookmarks, grouped in different folders, the new bookmark tree view is something you will appreciate. The bookmark tree is available either from the drop-down menu or from the side panel in the bookmark manager. It allows you to maintain, create and view the structure of your bookmarks easily.

More fun

If you like static background themes, you will definitely love animated ones. Having a fireplace, or other short video as your Speed Dial background gives your browser even more of a personal touch. You can even create your own animated theme and submit it to our theme catalog.
