Hi @upnorth, do you use any extension to clean cookies, cache and other data when Opera closes?

The feature I ask about was introduced in the developer version 92 a few months back, but I still can't see it in the latest stable version.

Lucid mode in Opera browser

The problem with most old videos are the resolution they were shot in, the lower it gets, the blurrier the image looks. Opera aims to address this by adding a CSS sharpening filter to videos and images on web pages. This feature is driven by hardware acceleration, handled by your computer's GPU.

The option is disabled by default, you can toggle it in 3 different ways. Open the sidebar and toggle Sharpen videos on all sites, and optionally enable the 2nd setting, Sharpen images on all sites. You may also configure these options from the browser's settings page: opera://settings/lucidMode

I have become totally addicted to Lucid mode in Opera browser :D Watching video tutorials on programming with it is much more comfortable! Series, if it's not the original 2k, also look much better. And this is when I wanted to delete Opera completely. :LOL:

Could someone please give a feed back on how Opera is currently doing? Is it safe to use it?

I also noticed that in system settings Opera brings several DNS options to activate automatically:
Cloudflare (default)
Cloudflare for Families (No Malware)
Cloudflare for Families (No Malware or Adult Content)
Google Public DNS

What configuration would you recommend me?
