Glad you can get some use out of the research I'm doing, Yrag. We should all be trading best practices for keeping safe and secure online.
I've been playing with Opera all afternoon and evening. You enable the VPN with a single click, and that's it -- you're actions thereafter are invisible to your ISP.
I'm not sure if you can download torrents from within the browser (I'm getting mixed answers, so I'll have to continue to learn about this). Remember, there are other programs which connect to the internet which DON'T flow through your browser, and those won't be hidden by the VPN which comes with Opera. Only the browser's internet connection will be invisible.
There's going to be a learning curve for me with Opera -- I've been using Firefox forever, and I had it configured exactly how I liked it. I'll get there with Opera too, but not in a single afternoon. I'm still trying to figure out where they hide the coffee filters, and how you turn on the lights and stuff like that.
But basically, tentatively, I'm pretty much sold on the concept. I'm going to switch over to this very impressive browser. The built in VPN seems to give me exactly what I've been searching for -- a reasonably strong layer of privacy, impressive speed and simple enough that there's no real learning curve (for the VPN, that is).
