Thank you – and a warm welcome to our new Opera users!
Last week, we released the new developer version of Opera for computers with the ad-blocking feature on board. If you enable it, you can speed up webpage loading times by up to 90%.
At Opera, we are used to massive downloads and lots of feedback, but since we launched this latest version, we were truly amazed by the number of people immediately falling in love with the new feature. While we knew there is a strong interest for faster browsers, the super positive feedback made our day.
Since last Thursday, we’ve seen a strong response to our integrated ad-blocking technology – not only among our users, but also from developers and media around the world.
Always loved @opera and now I have even more reason to! https://t.co/EFaO3Dn9dg

@opera thank you for the adblocking. I’m making Opera my default browser on all devices!
