Private browsing also termed as Porn Modeby several pundits, has quickly become a fad among browser creators with Safari having it for quite some time, Internet Explorer team introducing it in IE8, Google Chrome having incognito mode and Firefox gearing to launch it in version 3.1, so where is the option for Opera lovers?
Well as far as we see, there is no real option in the upcoming releases of Opera, but that said there is a alternative for Opera lovers in the form of OperaTor, which will allow them to surf in the same familiar Opera interface, whilst providing users with a private browsing mode.
OperaTor basically combines the Opera browser with Tor, a project that gives user privacy the highest privacy while restricting information from being accessed by any analytics softwares.
Tor is a software project that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.
OperaTor anonymizes data for only the http and https protocol, so you will not be protected from other protocols, including the inbuilt email support provided by Opera. OperaTor is a portable freeware software which is built-upon Opera 9.5.2, so you can either run it from your PC or put in a pen/flash drive to take it along with you.
