    Hi All,
    I didn't realize the Avast Secure Browser mentioned in this post had a vpn built-in, if that's the case it makes it more interesting. I know the opera browser also has a vpn built-in.

    Opera also touts a built-in ad-blocker with crypto-mining protection, a battery saver feature for laptops, and turbo mode which compresses unencrypted data on the server-side for faster page loading. There's also an extension that allows loading of Chrome extensions from the Chrome Web Store (which gets updated much more frequently than Opera's extension store).

    Honestly, of all of those features, the only ones I actually use are battery saver and Chrome extensions. Chrome's version of uBlock Origin is much better than Opera's built-in ad-blocker. The built-in VPN always seems to screw up websites I'm trying to access. I either get region blacklisted or my search results come up in Russian. Turbo mode only works on http sites which are becoming rarer these days and it also breaks the Spotify web player.

    Opera also has the same experimental flags as Chrome if you like tweaking.
