    Installing Chrome extensions in Opera


    I used to be able to install Chrome extensions in Opera directly from the Chrome extensions store with an extension called "install Chrome extensions". Now I can't install extensions for some reason. The current extensions I previous installed update okay and run fine.

    Trying to find a solution, I came across several articles from last year saying that starting with Opera 55 beta, Opera would automatically allow you to install Chrome extensions without needing that additional extension. But Opera isn't letting me do that. All the extensions on Chrome's store say "available for Chrome" with no install link. Opera is up to date.

    Has something changed I don't know about?

    :)

    Possible minor bug - Update with both Opera 2x & Google Chrome installed

    Strange bug: Running the previous-older version of GPU-Z on Windows 7, 64-bit, SP1 and trying to update GPU-Z. Have Opera 23/24 installed as a 2ndary web browser, and Google Chrome installed as default/main web browser.
    Steps that work fine:
    1) Run GPU-Z whatever version.
    2) Open About.
    3) Click the links.
    Result: Links open correctly in default browser - Google Chrome.

    Steps to reproduce bug:
    1) Run GPU-Z, version before latest.
    2) Try to check for updates.
    3) GPU-Z says an update is available.
    4) Tell it to show the update.
    Result: Link opens incorrectly in Opera 23/24, instead of default Google Chrome web browser.
    Expected: Open in Google Chrome instead.

    Note: Opera 23/24 uses the same core as Google Chrome.

    Please check and fix, if necessary.

    Installing Chrome extensions in Opera

    Opera

    Here is the direct link to all: Index of /pub/

    Stash is stash, but there will be bookmarks.
    They (Opera Dev team) are working on the ability to add the bookmarks feature.

    There are a couple of extensions that add the improvisation of bookmarks.
    You can enable bookmarks in the QAB (Quick Access Bar); however, they are not editable or sortable, I believe.

    You can use this to use chrome extension and try using some there bookmark extensions: Download Chrome Extension

    Or, you can try some of the Opera extension for bookmarks... not the best, IMO, but they worked when I tried them.

    Add Bookmark

    Bookmarks Manager

    Here is another little tool that I like so I don't have to type commands into the browser: Opera Internal Pages
