Opera today launched version 50 of its desktop browser. Sadly, this release doesn’t come with a cake to celebrate this milestone (not even a tiny cupcake), but the newest release does include a new feature that makes sure that nobody can mine crytocurrencies in your browser.

More than four years after the launch of Google Now, the company has fully dissolved its AI assistant into the DNA of many of its core product offerings.

And for once, such hyper-conveniences may not have the creep factor. If future AI doesn’t need the cloud, then the cloud doesn’t need your personal data…
…As artificial intelligence continues expanding across the tech world, it seems destined to grow on phones, too. Expectations are rising that gadgets will simply know what we want and what we mean…”
