    A web browser with a snapshot tool linked to your web cam to take pictures.

    What could possibly go wrong....

    I was an opera user back in the day, I just don't see why anyone would use this now. If you want to use a chrome based browser at least use chromium (unless you want the chinese owners to see everything), better yet just use Firefox.

    Considering nobody uses Opera, probably not a lot!

    I was also an opera user, basically till they switched to chromium I think.

    Now using Vivaldi which was created by some of the Opera peeps who didn't like the direction it was going.

    I use Opera and Vivaldi. Opera runs better IMO than any of the Chromium browsers. Built in adblock and battery saver are useful. As for the ability to use your webcam as part of the snapshot tool, can't all web browsers use your microphone/webcam already?

    I've been using Opera since 2001. Still my favourite.

    For me? Absolutely nothing, none of my normal PCs have a webcam in the first place, on the laptop I've killed it in device manager and put some sticky tape over it the day I got it.

    I've started using Opera as my browser, and even though it's early days, I'm finding it a lot more pleasant to use than other browsers (no specific reason why, I'm just enjoying using it).

    I've been using Opera since Opera 9. I miss a lot of the features I "bought into" when I started. No-other browser has been as satisfying to use as the last few presto builds...
