Opera Browser for Android Brings Free Inbuilt VPN With Unlimited, Log-Free Service

The Kashmir Monitor

Published

on

Opera 51 – the latest stable build of Opera’s mobile browser for Android – has arrived and it brings a very useful new feature in the form of an inbuilt VPN. The updated version of the Opera browser for Android offers a native VPN service that is free to use and does not come with any attached log management condition.


Additionally, there is no use limitation on the usage of Opera’s VPN in terms of duration or data consumption. The new build of Opera browser for Android (version 51) is now available to download for users across the globe.

Opera started testing a free inbuilt VPN in its mobile browser for Android back in February. The feature has now finally been promoted to the app’s stable version and is now available with Opera browser’s version 51. It appears that the updated build is available to download from Google Play in certain regions only, for now.

 

However, you can still try out the new feature by downloading the latest build from APKMirror.

As for the Opera browser’s native VPN, it allows users to choose between Europe, America, and Asia servers. There is also an option called ‘Optimal’ in the VPN settings that automatically selects the best network route depending on the location of users. It appears that enabling the VPN will deactivate Opera browser’s inbuilt data saving feature.

The app’s updated build also comes with the option to deactivate the VPN conditionally, allowing search engines to bring up the most relevant search results depending upon the location of users. Additionally, one can choose to automatically activate the VPN only when a private tab is opened. Opera browser’s inbuilt VPN is a log-free service, which means the information being relayed through the virtual IP and network servers is not collected when users are linked to a public network.

Amazon Kindle (10th Gen) With Inbuilt Front Light Launched

The Kashmir Monitor

Published

on

A new Amazon Kindle ebook reader has been launched in India. Called the Kindle (10th Gen), this device has a 6-inch display with a built-in front light. The Kindle (10th Gen) is priced at Rs. 7,999. It’s up for pre-orders on Amazon India right now and starts shipping from April 10, 2019. This puts it squarely in between the cheapest Kindle (8th Gen) and the Kindle Paperwhite (10th Gen). The most affordable Kindle costs Rs. 5,999 and it does not have a front light, whereas the Kindle Paperwhite is priced at Rs. 12,999. That means you can’t read books on the device when it’s dark. The new device appears to be an upgraded variant of the cheapest Kindle.

The Kindle (10th Gen) features 4GB storage and supports Wi-Fi connectivity. Of course, you can adjust the brightness of this Kindle too. When reading in well-lit areas we prefer to set the Kindle’s brightness to zero, which effectively switches off the front light. The Kindle (10th Gen) promises a battery life of up to a month on a single charge, which is one of the best features of all Kindle ebook readers.

Available in two colour variants — Black and White — the Kindle (10th Gen) is up for pre-orders now. This device is not waterproof, which is to be expected at this price point. The Kindle (10th Gen) weighs 174g and a 6-inch display with a resolution of 167 pixels per inch. This is lower than the 300ppi display seen on the Kindle Paperwhite. It also features integration with the Amazon-owned book database website Goodreads, which offers book recommendations based on your taste and allows you to check community reviews for your favourite books.

 

Apart from that it has all standard Kindle features such as Whispersync (sync your progress across Kindle devices and apps), X-Ray (more information on important things in the book), and Smart Lookup (quickly check word meanings and look up Wikipedia).
