No more fussing with paid virtual private network (VPN) services to get your US Netflix or access blocked websites: Opera now builds one directly into its desktop browser.
The company says the new feature is a response to the demand for the service (24% of internet users have tried or are currently using a VPN), as well as a desire to offer something new for the web. No doubt much of that 24% will try out the new Opera and maybe even stick with it, if only as a secondary browser for the express purpose of accessing geographically restricted content.
Unfortunately it's only available with the developer build, but presumably it will be offered publicly before long. To grab the developer build, head here; VPN can then be enabled easily in the options menu on PC or Mac.
