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.

Tor - client or relay?

Is OperaTor configuring Tor as a client or as a relay? How can this be changed?

Any plans to repackage OperaTor with Tor now that that is the new stable release version?

31.07.2008, 18:13


Thanks for the program. But unlike previous version with Privoxy you claim the newest version with Polipo to anonymize both http and https connections. Polipo can scrub also some https headers but it must be configured so. If I want to check it and go to a page showing received data then turns out it receives real info about my OS and Opera browser version. So why do you claim Polipo version to anonymize https connections? What does it? Thanks

It receives information

It receives information about your OS and browser version but under a different IP.
