Latest update to Opera Browser does away with those lovely cookie prompts
- Version 48 of Opera Browser for Android automatically blocks cookie dialog boxes.
- The update also includes new startup options and small UI fixes.
- The update is rolling out now.
Keep in mind that the feature does not block cookies; it simply blocks their dialog boxes. Cookies will still come through, with an option to automatically accept cookie dialogs. That is worth remembering if you are someone who blocks cookies when you browse through websites.
The update also throws in some startup options to customize how you use the browser. For example, Opera includes a new setting that lets you close or preserve open tabs when you exit the browser. There are also new settings that control how Opera re-opens active tabs when you use the browser and let you set your own home screen shortcut.
With the update, Opera also saves your credit card information from within a purchase, includes a text size setting that affects the general layout of a website, and throws in some small UI changes. For example, there is a new clear data dialog, improvements to autofill that let you more easily remove unwanted entries and recent searches, and force-enabling zoom for every website.
