Opera Web Browser Gets Inbuilt Ad-block on Desktop


The famous web browser Opera now has an interesting and awesome feature to get excited out. They have added built in ad block for the desktop version of Opera. That means now you can get rid of ads from websites without using any additional plugin or extension.


Most interesting thing is that this feature decreases load times of web pages by up to 90%.  So that now you can load your favorite websites or videos without worrying about irritating ads. And they will load faster too.  Just like with third-party blockers, Opera lets you set up your own whitelists for sites where you allow ads to appear. Opera also added a somewhat unique feature that lets you compare load times with the ad blocker turned on and off.
