Opera for Android now blocks cookie dialog boxes

The arrival of GDPR requirements in various websites made mobile browsing a tedious process where you either automatically agree with companies selling your data or losing ungodly time to actually turn off all options. These dialog boxes might be inconvenient, but Opera just updated its Android app where you immediately get them filtered and removed with a simple toggle in Settings.

The new version 48 of the app has two more neat features. If your phone is on Android 7.1 Nougat and above, you can create QR scanning, search or browsing tab shortcut directly on the Home Screen. Long tap on the Opera app icon and just select New Tab from the 3D menu.

Some users might have issues with the small font on mobile devices, so Opera comes handy here as well. The new text wrap feature was tested in Beta and finally makes it to the final rollout. Just go to Text options, click Text Wrap and select your desired size of letters. It brings a bit more vertical scrolling, but at least you won’t bother with the pinch-to-zoom feature all the time.
