The next version of the Opera web browser will come with a built-in VPN, offering users better privacy and content access from everywhere. That's a big deal for those who are looking to bypass geo-restricted content gates.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) services allows users to hide their location and is mostly used by those concerned privacy or wanting to access content only available in certain countries. Opera's integrated VPN will offer users unlimited data as well, unlike many other free VPN services.
The company's move to provide users with the service comes at a time where content providers, such as Netflix, have become more strict on blocking users from accessing content not in their region.
Opera says that speeds under the VPN will be fast enough for users to watch some HD content.
Opera has released a developer version of its desktop web browser with native VPN support. The preview version only gives you three simulated locations for the VPN (Canada, Germany and the US), so this won't give you access to a whole lot until the finished browser is ready.
