Today, we want to share with you another big thing that you will first see in the developer channel for Opera for computers.

We are the first major browser maker to integrate an unlimited and free VPN or virtual private network. Now, you don't have to download VPN extensions or pay for VPN subscriptions to access blocked websites and to shield your browsing when on public Wi-Fi.

A great addition to a browser, and in these times, every browser should have it.

What they don't say, how will they pay for all this new bandwith? They bought SurfEasy VPN a while ago, but that service was free (500Mb) and for money, now, everyone is on free?


Looking around a bit, SurfEasy is still being backed by venture capital funding. So while Opera may be a profitable company, it probably isn't injecting that much money into SurfEasy beyond the original purchase. It could be that, by incorporating SurfEasy into its own networking infrastructure, it's providing a large-scale example of SurfEasy technology for future clients.
