    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    Opera reportedly has multiple predatory loan apps in the Play Store with interest rates of up to 876%

    "It's no secret that Opera isn't doing so well in the era of Chrome dominance. According to a report published by Hindenburg Research, the company's losses in browser revenue have apparently led it to create multiple loan apps with short payment windows and interest rates of ~365-876%, which are in violation of new Play Store rules Google enacted last year..."

    Okash & Opesa are Opera apps.
    "...If you think that's bad, then buckle in! According to Play Store reviews, the OKash and OPesa apps sent text messages or calls to people in the user's contacts when payments were late, threatening to take legal action or place the borrower on a credit blacklist..."

    Suggest all Opera users jump to Vivaldi.

    Well, I always thought that Opera Software was being very vague about who's developing the Opera browser, so I don't really trust them.
