      Oh Hai - Opera user here (have been since the 5.x days).
      I am not as exclusive as I used to be though, chrome/chromium are my secondary with vivaldi and firefox bringing up the rear.

      The main feature of Opera that I miss in other browsers is: Mouse Gestures!

        Oh hai! Ex-Opera user here. Vivaldi has mouse gestures. Not that I use them.

          FireGestures is a really good extension for Firefox, I'm not missing anything with it.

          There's a few extensions for Chromium too, I settled on crxMouse Chrome Gestures, it seems to do the trick, though I don't use Chromium much.

            The built in VPN thing is nice.

                But before using that one, ppl have to consider Opera has been bought by chinese company and China known to have plenty of draconian laws when it comes to networking, censorship and privacy. So one may want to think twice before using vpn services like this. Uhm sure they claim they do not log anything, blah-doh. But its hard to get definitive proof, isn't it?

                    Depending on where the VPN end points are and how the company is structured and lots of other variables...

                    Also a general nod to the saying: "If the product costs nothing, then you are the product"
