Opera 50 is the latest stable version released for Windows, Linux and macOS and the direct download links are available in this post. Opera 50 comes with cryptocurrency mining protection in order to prevent the websites those are using mining scripts in the background without the consent of its visitors.
Due to the sudden spike in the price of cryptocurrency, lots of website owners have started background mining through their websites for the sake of profit. Consequently, the visitors of those particular websites experience the high load on CPU. The systems’ performance slows down and may impact on the hardware due to high load.
Even some of the advanced technologies used on the websites continue the mining process even when the users close the web browser. To overcome this issue, Opera brings anti-crypto mining support in its new Opera 50.
