Opera proxy kowtows to foreign network search restrictions
I'm English, I have an English phone with multi charset options. I am working in China so I purchased a chinese sim card to save on exorbitant data costs.
I am over 18 so I don't need "protecting young persons from inappropriate internet content"
So, what happens is that Opera tells me is that I HAVE to now down load Opera from a chinese website, it will not allow me to access squat.
Further investigation shows that this version has so many "taps" introduced by the chinese government that is absolutely useless for accessing the web by mobile.
Obviously, the Opera proxies that crunch web pages are not available to the chinese censors !
Bye the way, I have subsequently download all the back level versions of Opera and tried them all, so the BLOCK is definitely based on my IP address and applied by the Opera Proxy.
Also, full Opera for Symbian clearly has this built into it's code as it doesn't need to use the data reduction proxies.
Bah Humbug Opera ... .. you now rate -5 from 10.
