“Once you switch it on, a shield icon appears in the address bar where you can easily see the number of trackers being blocked, as well as a list of said trackers,” The company wrote in a press release of its Opera browser.
The Opera browser feature targets to increase awareness of the pervasiveness of tracking as if we didn’t know already. Nevertheless, it might be just interesting to see exactly who is tracking your work so as to avoid particularly skeevy sites.
In the event that you do not know how to use it, just turn the setting on globally from the “easy setup” menu and then toggle it on or off from each website, the same way you do with a typical adblocker.
Opera browser tracker blocker can help you detect specific scripts in order to block them if you authorize it to do so, and when paired with the ad-blocker, speeds up sites by up to 76 percent, so the company claimed. On the other hand, many websites detect ad blockers and will refuse to load if you don’t disable them.
