@Gwen-Dragon I figured out what it was after I searched for something on Google and noticed that Google thought I was in the United Arab Emirates. I just signed up with NordVPN, and it's been behaving weirdly. Even though my IP address was supposedly in SEATTLE, Google was thinking I was in the UAE for some reason. When I disconnected and reconnected, my location was changed back to the United States.
@nucerl , do not use VPN extensions, they are not efficient and also the free ones usually collect your data.
An extension VPN can only open a private tunnel after your browser has connected to the network, thus exposing your IP as well.
To avoid this, the VPN must create the private tunnel before you open the browser, that is, from the OS.
If you want free VPN, I only know 2 reliable free ones, Proton VPN. (has no data volume limit) and Windscribe (10 Gb / month), but both are limited in number of servers in their free versions.

видео на странице, по не понятным причинам, само разблокировалось.
Эта ситуация имеет привычку повторяться. Случайно открыл из истории страницу с сериалом - "недоступно в вашем регионе". Минут через 5-10 без всяких усилий, само по себе заработало.
Ich merke gerade, dass so einiges nicht funktioniert wenn ich verbunden bin. Das Sync u.a. - sobald ich disconnecte klappts auch mit dem Sync. Kaum bin ich wieder connected geht weder sync noch Favicons. Irgendetwas hat sich da verändert, und das ist nicht so gut 😞
@ayespy Oh, so you are saying original VPN is A tunneling directly to C (final destination) with encryption. Then now the commercial VPNs are A tunneling through B (VPN servers) to get to C (final destination) all with encryption, so B should be consider as "just proxy with encryption"? Please correct me if i'm wrong.
I'm not sure, in my perspective as a consumer, at the end both are doing the same thing - encrypting my Internet traffic/packages so that 3rd party can't see the content & the address to final destination.
Thanks for the informative discussion. 🙂

@tdheller said in Include VPN In Browser:
I too would like this feature.
It seems odd that I need to go to my OPERA browser for VPN, when the VIVALDI team are the ones who built OPERA.
Lets have the teacher take a lesson from the student this one time. VPN is a valuable service but as I said OPERA offers it for free. ...
There's more to including a VPN in a browser than simply writing some interface code. Operating a reliable VPN requires a server network with access portals in multiple parts of the world, and those servers must have the throughput capacity to immediately serve a countless host of possible VPN users. It must operate 24/7, which carries a significant maintenance responsibility along with attendant costs. That's not something to be entered into lightly by the VPN provider. If a browser maker elects to farm out its VPN feature to a 3rd-party provider (as does Opera), the browser maker has to somehow pay the provider for his service, but still must deal with a drumbeat of support demands/complaints when the browser is blamed for connection issues that may lie with the VPN provider. There's no easy way for an unhappy user to tell who is at fault. Opera's forums contain continual threads regarding VPN connection issues that, in many cases, arise from problems with the VPN provider and not Opera's browser itself.
Entering into the VPN realm means entering into a world that also involves VPNs being used by many users to bypass local censorship laws and the technologies employed to enforce them. That bypassing carries the VPN provider into 'political' realms that may (and often do) ultimately result in the VPN's IPs being blacklisted within those censored locales, and in some cases also means the prohibition of using VPN-equipped software in the first place - which would mean the browser itself for browsers including VPN. For a view into this, again simply browse through Opera's forums for a while, and you'll discover numerous "issues" with Opera and its VPN being experienced by users who are behind various forms of censorship curtains.
Consequently, the entire VPN-in-a-browser subject has to be approached with a broader view than just the complexity of the browser VPN code alone. If Vivaldi chooses not to include VPN as a feature, to me it's more than understandable. If I were king of Vivaldi, I wouldn't touch it with the proverbial ten-foot pole, and instead would concentrate my resources on debugging the basic browser and incorporating other user features into it. Once the browser was mature and established in market share, perhaps a different view might arise - but that day is not this day.
