What are Opera Extensions?
We are committed to open web standards and this is an important part of our strategy, so if you find us deviating from other solutions out there, this might be why.
Extensions in Opera is a way for you to easily add new functionality to your Opera browser experience. Developers can easily create extensions using open standards (HTML5, CSS, JavaScript) and supported APIs.
Extensions will be based on the W3C Widget specifications and this is being considered for an Open Standard effort.

Will Opera Extensions be similar to extensions in other browsers?
Yes, Opera Extensions will be similar in some ways and we have tried to make it easy to port extensions from certain browsers.
