Opera One is one of the most underrated browsers for Windows. The good news though is that it has gained more popularity in the past years, thanks to the many features that few of the alternative browsers include.

For example, if you’re not a frequent Opera One user, you might not know that it includes a built-in adblocker. With other browsers, ad blockers come as separate plugins that you have to install.

Also, we’re going to show you yet another trick in Opera One: the option to select multiple tabs and paste them in a separate document.

But first, let’s block those annoying ads.


How do I block ads in Opera One?

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Under the Block ads, turn on Block ads and surf the web up to three times faster.

Further on, you can add exceptions if you want to see ads only on a specific site. Note that ads on certain sites are allowed by default.

By using the ad blocker, you will certainly see an increase in page loading times.


How can I select multiple tabs in Opera One?

  1. Pressing the Ctrl key and selecting all the tabs you need.
  2. Then, right click on any tab.
  3. From the menu, select Copy page addresses.

You can paste all the addresses in a text editor. But unlike in Chrome, you can’t move them in a new window, to bulk open all tabs at once.
