Opera Arioso - Firewall inside Opera browser
« on: July 19, 2008, 05:54 PM »
This showed up in my feeds just now. I no longer use Opera but I remember there are some Opera users on this forum; this might be of interest for them:

Opera Arioso II is
a User Script written for Opera that behaves like a firewall inside Opera. Unlike other plugins or User scripts, Arioso can detect and block malicious activity before it ever gets a chance of executing.

I cannot say if or how exactly it works. However, 0x000000.com was very "informative" and accurate in the past, so I guess they "know their stuff".

I'd like to hear feedback from Opera users, just so I know it works.

Seems to work, but looks overly aggressive at first. Apparently DC is trying all sorts of bad things...

I'll test some more sites tomorrow (it's getting too late for me)..

thanks for the tip

They surely know how to make a good impression: kills Flash, prevents keylogging in the forum (erm, what?), and crashes the browser when I'm going to see "Unread posts". This seems to maintain a terrible balance between ease of use and level of security, and errs too much into paranoia. So I guess I won't use it, thanks for the heads up anyway :)
