Opera 40 arrives on Windows, Mac and Linux with free built-in VPN service. Opera 40 today launched with new free, unlimited, no-log browser VPN service. With this launch, Opera becomes the first major browser to release a built-in VPN service.

When turned on, the browser VPN creates a secure connection to one of Opera's five server locations around the world. The VPN lets you choose where to appear on the internet, giving you online privacy and security a boost while making content easier to access.

Using the free VPN in Opera
After downloading the browser, enabling VPN is easy. Go to "Settings" (or "Preferences" on Mac), choose "Privacy & Security" and then toggle the free VPN. An icon labeled "VPN" will appear in the browser, from which you can toggle VPN on and off, and choose a location.

Users can also let the Opera browser intelligently select the optimal server location based on factors such as network speed, latency, location and server capacity. When in automatic location mode, browsing via the VPN is always at maximum available speed.

Under the hood
Opera's free browser VPN secures all traffic through Opera (but not other browsers or apps you have installed). Since the initial developer release, Opera has added some new features to the browser VPN. In this version, you can choose whether to turn VPN on for everything the browser shows, or only use it when browsing using private windows. Also, new virtual locations - Singapore and the Netherlands - have been added to bring you even more privacy options.

Automatic battery saving
You'll be able to enjoy the power saving mode automatically whenever your laptop is unplugged. Opera also added new power saving settings, so you can configure the threshold for when automatic mode should kick in. Opera added the estimated remaining battery capacity to the user interface so you can keep track of your power.

Chromecast support
To use Chromecast with Opera, first download and install the Chrome extension from the Opera catalogue. Then you will be able to install the Google Cast extension from the Chrome web store. Once it's installed, and you have the special device attached to your display and are operating on the same Wi-Fi network, the device should be detected and you can begin streaming. Chromecast works for YouTube videos only for now.

Video pop-out improvements
Further improvements have been added to the video pop-out feature. Even more video sites and players are now supported. Opera have also tweaked it so the video pop-out button is less intrusive, and is disabled for short videos. Closing the video is now much simpler - just a single click.

Newsreader with RSS support
The personal newsreader now has support for RSS. This means you can add any RSS-based feed as well as our selection of sources. Custom RSS can be read in both timeline and stacked view, the same way other news is displayed in the personalized newsreader. The only difference is that the estimated reading time will not be available for those sources.

To use the personalized newsreader, click the News icon on the left-hand side of the Speed Dial and then click the "+" button. You can then paste a URL into the search field. Once the URL is recognized as valid source, you can add it.
