OPERA SOFTWARE has announced the arrival of its no-log-in VPN service to all users.The company, which recently sold itself to a Chinese consortium for $600m but is trading as a separate concern, has openly tested the service for some time but today marks a hard launch in stable builds.Opera has committed to offering the service as unlimited and free, following on from last year when it described the use of a VPN as a “basic right”.
