Local Weather - geoip is blocked by Opera adblock

Hi,

Here’s my website: https://zelite.github.io/Local-Weather/

It works good on chrome. I’m getting the location with navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition() and if that fails (because the user may refuse to give the location), it falls back to use the following geoip api: https://geoip.nekudo.com/api/

The problem is, on the Opera browser there is a built in adblocker (both on mobile and desktop browsers) and it blocks the geoip request.

Why is this being blocked by operas adblocker? =/ Chrome with adblock does not complain.

There are ways of disabling adblock from within Opera:

This will not make your app viewable within Opera on other users’ machines, though.
