As you might be already knowing, Opera recently got a built-in ad blocking feature. One feature it lacked was the ability to add custom block lists. Starting with Opera 38, which has reached the beta channel as of this writing, such an ability was added to the browser. This version allows the user to use custom lists, like popular add-ons AdBlock and uBlock Origin do.
The Opera browser is getting interesting new features with every release. Opera 37 brought a built-in ad blocker and VPN.

If you still remember the good old Opera 12 browser, you must be familiar with its Opera Link service, which provided an easy way to sync bookmarks between your devices. Unfortunately, when Opera became
Chropera, Opera Link was discontinued. Now, after several months of development, the Opera team has finally decided to revive this feature back into their new product, the Chromium-based browser, which retains the Opera name. As of this moment, the developer version of the new Opera (which is not recommended for daily use) features complete synchronization of tabs and bookmarks. Also, Opera Beta (which is a bit more stable) has bookmarks synchronization only.

Private browsing mode is a feature of the Opera browser designed to not record the history of your web surfing. When you open a new private window, Opera does not keep cookies, temporary internet files, history, and other data related to your browsing activities. When the Private browsing session window is closed, this data is cleared. Private Browsing mode can be started with Ctrl + Shift + N keys, however, you might want to run Opera directly in private mode with a shortcut. Let's see how it can be done.
Opera 23 features delayed loading of previous session tabs on startup. This new option is a really great improvement in the browser as it improves performance: Opera will start much faster and consume less CPU resources on startup. However, by default this feature only works in tandem with Opera Turbo (Off-road mode). If you want to try the lazy loading feature of tabs in Opera 23, but don't need Off-road mode, here is a trick for you which enables delayed loading of previous session tabs regardless of the Off-road mode state.
