Opera 53 released


With a built-in ad blocker, battery saver and free VPN, Opera browser for Windows brings you more speed and privacy. The data-compressing Opera Turbo feature, native ad blocker and other features will help you browse faster. And, the new battery saver feature will help you browse longer, too: it extends laptop battery life by up to 50%.

Opera will speed you up on the web and make sure ads don’t distract you from what matters. Opera's ad blocker is built right into the browser. No installation and setup required, just turn on ad blocking in the browser settings.

Of course, not all ads are evil. You can easily unblock ads on any website (like NEOWIN), if you want.

Opera for computers treats your safety on the web very seriously. Focus on surfing, while Opera browser takes care of your privacy and protects you from suspicious sites that try to steal your password or install viruses or other malware.

Protect yourself online with Opera’s privacy features. Use a private window to leave no history, cookies or cache behind as you browse - especially useful on shared computers. Turn on Opera’s built-in VPN to change your online location and browse more securely on public Wi-Fi networks.

Over 1,000 extensions make it easy to customize Opera. Download the extensions and themes you like from Opera’s add-ons catalog to get the best browser experience with a personal touch. With the animated themes, you can even bring Opera’s start page to life.
