Finally Opera Has Decided To Support Extensions

By Ricky on October 15th, 2010 

opera_browser_logo Opera is one of the most solid browsers around. It is very fast, extremely customizable and has a lot of functionalities which others do not have. Opera is also a very strong supporter of web standards. It is one of the first browsers to pass the ACID 3 test. However Opera has always been confined to a relatively small user-base because of one critical thing – lack of extensions.

Well, that is about to change – at least the extensions part. Today, it has been announced that Opera 11 will support extensions.

The Opera extensions will not be much different from those in other browsers. They can be created using HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and APIs. Continuing the history of web standard support, the extensions will be based on the W3C Widget specifications.

Maybe this is the one move that will finally make Opera a serious competitor to other browsers like Firefox, Chrome etc.
