Warning: this software is not maintained anymore. Try Operator YAPO, a portable Opera package, or the official Tor bundle.

Download OperaTor 3.5

OperaTor weights 10 MB and is Windows only. After the download is finished:

  • check its MD5 checksum: 7a288e64811219b0ccc081398632288f *
  • extract the archive to the location of your choice
  • launch the OperaTor.exe file to start all the necessary applications

Please do not link directly to the files. Link to this page instead.


The only protocols which OperaTor anonymizes are HTTP and HTTPS, thus if you want to stay anonymous you should avoid using other Opera features (e.g. Java, JavaScript, Bittorrent, integrated e-mail and IRC clients).

OperaTor comes with absolutely no warranty. It is the user's responsibility to test whether the connection is secure. Users should keep in mind that OperaTor relies on Tor (The Onion Router) and Polipo and any security questions should be directed to their developers.

The reason lies in Tor itself. See Google tells me I have spyware installed in the Tor's FAQ. Sorry, but I can't do anything about it.

Saving a web page as a single file to MHT in OperaTor

The MHT format which allows you to save a web page as a single file to a *.mht file is supported by Opera. I usually save web pages this way. OperaTor saves to mht but also adds a profile subfolder. But when opened the mht files are displayed in OperaTor in a small 500px x 300px frame with scrollbars. This needs a fix. Thanks for your attention.

Google Error?

I think you may need to run a system scan for virus on =your= PC because I use Google cache pages all the time (10 seconds ago) and never received such an error.

Excellent - though some little glitches found

Works great. Thank you very much for this!!!

What doesn't work well is: Opera's widgets – I can download these but I can't launch them; some filesharing sites' functionality [download] gets blocked [Depositfiles]; search for new skins in Opera generates a connection closed error in the skin browser's window; Google's top link bar is not shown!?
