jcaiken: Thanks for the suggestions but these entries really aim to just be a summary of the application. There's really no way to make sure we're highlighting all the tech, features, and difference from other applications, but you're right that the ad-bocking by default is notable so I'll add that in.

Also, should note that the included "VPN" is really just a proxy.

Opera is built on Chromium, the open-source version of Chrome, and as well as having its own extensions is compatible with most Chrome extensions (but not Chrome Applications).
The reference to the older version of Opera (v12) should also identify that it also lacks many of the modern features that are only available in the newer versions, e.g. Chrome compatibility, built in ad-blocker and free VPN, etc.
