So as Opera V11.00 is being welcomed with open arms I thought I would list a few Extensions which should deserve a mention.Focus On Textbox
=> Add a blue outline around textboxes when they are in focus.Download Helper
=> Download Helper for many popular file hosting.Weather Forecast
=> Shows weather information (current conditions and forecast) for your favourite locations around the world.
Extensions in Opera are stored in <Opera_Directory>\profile\widgets
and use the Extension Type .oex, but luckily like the new improved installer they can be un-zipped using 7-Zip, edited and then re-compressed to .zip and renamed back to .oex. For example if you follow the previous procedure you can edit the colour for 'Focus On Textbox' by navigating to includes and editing highlight.js by changing #0099FF to a new Hex Colour.Note:
I used Universal Extractor
to Extract the .oex Extension.
reported that Opera had been download 6.7 million on the day of Launch. They also provided another insight into their sense of humour, but posting an advertisement on Reddit. Check out the article
