Opera 50 to include Cryptojacking protection
Opera will become the first browser to feature an anti-cryptojacking feature that will prevent websites from using your computer’s CPU power to mine for cryptocurrencies. This new feature is named NoCoin and is currently under development. Users can get it right now if they install Opera 50 Beta RC, and the feature is expected to land in the stable version of Opera 50, set for an official release in January 2018. NoCoin is part of Opera’s native ad blocker. The ad blocker comes disabled by default, and enabling the ad blocker also turns on the NoCoin cryptocurrency mining protection. Other browser makers have not shared any public plans on how they plan to deal with cryptojacking services.
