After using desktop Opera's built in ad-blocking a while, I have to say
it is very good for a basic included feature.
<http://www.opera.com/blogs/desktop/2016/03/native-ad-blocking-feature-opera-for-computers/>

While not quite as comprehensive as UBlock Origin, it is adequate and
worth the speed savings on slower machines and congested public WiFi and
the like.

One thing I do not fully understand is how Opera's new 'Opera VPN'
service (basically SurfEasy lite - fewer features, options, and server
choices than SurfEasy) can have worse built in ad-blocking than Opera's
own built in ad-blocking. Yet it does. Are they not using the same block
list? Or is it harder to seamlessly remove some content via the network?
I expect it's the later, but it is disappointing.
