The Opera web browser now has a free Built-in VPN service with 256-bit encryption, allowing you to access region-restricted content with ease.

That is a good idea with the built in VPN, I might give it a crack i haven't used Opera in a long time.

Problem is for me I just can't tear myself away from Chrome cause i really like the UI in Chrome.

I've always been a fan of Opera. This is a great little feature for a solid browser.

not bad

Not bad so far, just make sure to download the Developer version to get the VPN ability right now. The locations they have for VPN are the United States, Canada, and Germany at this current time. Just downloaded it to see how it is.

Will it be sneaky like the HOLA plugin for chrome though? Which uses your bandwidth for p2p services. Nice idea by Opera.

Opera are pretty trustworthy usually so I don't think they'd try to do something like that without being upfront.

Same here, I love my Chrome... But might have to install Opera as a second browser just for this feature alone for when I run into restricted content.
