10+ handy Opera 11 extensions (Download Squad)

Nov 10th 2010 12:10AM Opera has content blocking build in, just right click on a page and from the context menu click 'Block Content'.

As for the arrow I think it tries to guess which link will bring up the next page of results so on Google or Bing for example it will bring up the next page of results (similar to the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl x and Ctrl z), but it doesn't always get it right.

Opera 11 adds portable install option (Download Squad)

Oct 24th 2010 5:24PM I understand, what I'm saying is I'm not sure if your going to get exactly the same results as when you install it to a external device. According to the post on the Opera Desktop Team blog when you install it to an external device it configures itself to read and write its profile settings to the installation folder. I don't know where it writes and reads its profile when you just extract it.

Opera 11 adds portable install option (Download Squad)

Oct 24th 2010 3:01PM I don't know if you need to rename the extension, at least if your using 7Zip then you shouldn't need to.

I think though that when you install it to an external device it configures itself so that it writes the settings/preferences to the same folder as it is being installed to.

Notepad++ 5.8.1 now out, with upgraded Scintilla editor component (Download Squad)

Sep 29th 2010 6:13PM It appears that they still haven't added an option to "Launch with Opera". I know that you can add it yourself manually, but it would be nice if it came with it considering that you have the option for just about every other major browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari).

Sep 17th 2010 12:33PM Do you mean on top of the address bar? or alongside it? if alongside it did you need to manually edit the config files?

OK, there actually are a couple of services for books that operate like Netflix, but I think only for paper books, so I guess it's sort of like Netflix minus the instant streaming.
