Opera 52 released

The latest version of Opera, which is still a useful alternative to Firefox and Chrome, sports an improved (and faster) ad blocker.

The new ad blocker now provides protection against cryptojacking, where a web site will attempt to use your browser (and your computer) for mining cryptocurrency.

With Opera 52, you can now select multiple tabs, and perform various operations on all of the selected tabs, including copying the related URLs to the clipboard with a single command.

The release notes and change log for Opera 52 provide additional details.

About jrivett

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
