Did you know that you can personalize your browser in more than 1000 different ways? That’s right, we now have more than 1000 extensions especially made for the Opera browser in our extensions catalog!
Personalize Opera browser with 1000+ extensions

What exactly is an extension?
A browser extension is a tiny program (made with web technologies) that extends the functionality of an internet browser. With extensions, users can customize their browser to add new functionality and make it the perfect tool for their everyday online tasks.

Here are the top 10 extensions:
What’s particularly interesting about the current Opera extensions catalog is that almost half of the extensions can’t be found in other extension stores. Some of the most popular unique extensions include:

  • Gismeteo weather forecast in speed-dial: a Russian-language extension (but the icons speak for themselves) that shows you the weather forecast right on your Speed Dial start page.
  • Translate: adds in-page language translation functionality to any webpage.
  • Modern scroll: boosts scrolling performance in Opera.
  • Page Capture: allows you to make a screenshot of a whole page, a selected part or the visible content of a tab, save it to a file or share it via a URL, quickly and easily.
  • Smart RSS : an RSS reader right in your browser; it also requires RSS Detector.
  • Violentmonkey : provides userscript support for Opera, supporting most scripts for Greasemonkey and Tampermonkey.
  • Tab Close Plus : adds a context menu option to close left tabs, close right tabs, close other tabs, close similar tabs and so on.
  • Classic Images : adds a shortcut key to save images and advanced image options to the context menu.
  • Cryptocat : provides an open, accessible instant-messaging client with a transparent layer of encryption.
  • QR Codematic : allows you to easily generate QR codes for any site you visit, even for selected text.

Generate QR codes for any site you visit

Stay secure
At Opera, we take security very seriously. That’s why each of the extensions in our catalog has been vetted by our extension moderators to ensure that it does what it says it will do and no more. If a new version of an extension requires more permissions, you’re prompted to review it and grant permission.

Web developers who want to see the code of an extension before installing it can also do so – using an extension! Extension source viewer adds a button to right of the address bar when an extension file has been detected and allows you to view source or download an extension as a ZIP file, without actually installing it.

Whether you want to fix up Facebook, set site-specific preferences, make sure that you automatically get the secure HTTPS version of sites or need the classic Web Developer Toolbar, you’re sure to find something you can’t live without! Get going and visit Opera’s extension catalog today.

  • “Smart RSS” in combination with “RSS Detector” is really great. 🙂

    Firefox can be personalized in 10000 ways 🙂

      And it is really customizable!

        SeaMonkey is also looking nice with integrated e-mail client, IRC chat and only offers contacts instead of group discussing (can’t remember how it’s called in English, I’m using programs mostly in Polish), but it’s not configurable on default like Firefox and many extensions for Firefox don’t work in SeaMonkey :/

        The only hope is Polish Otter, where everyone can change code in it and the future for this browser is really awesome 🙂

      Yes. Its funny what Opera’s devs say… Its just sounds like a joke to me.

    Nice extensions, but unfortunately most of them are inherently insecure, because they require javascript turned on globally. Since javascript bugs are the most frequently used attack vector against browsers, it should be turned off everywhere and enabled on a need-to-use basis. But in such a scenario, these extensions won’t work.

    Since I doubt Opera will be able to make such changes in the rendering engine which would allow running extensions’ code without allowing page’s code, it should focus on allowing the useful functionality inside the browser natively – e.g. by providing many more Keybindings (with multiple actions!), ability to customize the context menu and preferably a published message interface (so that I could, for example, detect the context of the cursor from an external application such as AutoHotKey – these days I can send a “right click” and even select an item from the context menu, but I have no way of determining which context menu appeared!)

        I live in a world where security is important. You?

        • BS-Harou

          In a world where people know javascript isn’t a dirty magic to hack your computer, but actually a great things that makes web better?

    I haven’t seen a menu bar, a working fix for bookmarks horizontal bar, a proper skin, or a real attempt at customization in that collection. I’m not even sure they ARE Opera extensions at all.

    • modern scroll strives for customization 😉

      • Jademarisa

        Modernity does not always equal to usability, and Opera lacks usability at the moment, just as Chrome does. Many users want their browsers to make their lives easier, not more complicated: that is, to search and find, and do all the other tasks a browser is supposed to do, not have users looking for hidden menus and options forever, so that every task doubles its duration, that’s not efficiency. Google, you and Windows have definitely forgotten users.

    That’s nice, now where’s my bookmarks.

    Ważną kwestią jest ochrona danych osobowych – poważna firma, która dba o klienta (jak Opera) dba o jego prywatność.

    Very nice – but Opera has always had a very good bookmark function – not any more… but Firefox (and IE…) has. Will it be back like before (and not like a speeddial-function where one looses the overview when passing 20 URL) ?

    • Yes, in v25, see the blog of the desktop team.

      • pseudofilosofen

        Thanks!
        And in the meantime, I have exported Operas bookmarks, imported them in Firefox, and started using that. Just the receipt for loosing users / customers by Opera (and I have been using Opera since long before I actually paid for it). Too bad!

        • Well, importing bookmarks from the old Opera 12 to newer versions has been possible for a few months now, also with a bookmarks bar on top. The problem is or was that you could not easily use the bookmarks of other browsers yet.

  • Fleder

    You mean 1000 Extensions for Opera. Those are not real personalizing options like we had in Opera 12.

    How do I customize keyboard shortcuts?
