I decided to pick 10 features which after several months of using Opera 15+ as main browser I found I miss the most. I don't include features I know Opera is already working on (e.g. bookmarks).

  1. Speed dial configuration
  2. Numbers in address bar/CTRL+number to go to speed dial's nth item
  3. Option to disable shift+enter in forms (it opens new window and it is happening to me very often when I don't want

I miss the "Open frame in..." items in Opera 15+ context menu so I created a very simple extension which adds the functionality. As there (as far as I know) isn't a way to add sub-context menu I'm adding only one item which you can configure in options page.

If you'd like to use it as well, here is the nex file:

Smart RSS is an extension that clones (in a bit mutated way) RSS reader from Opera 12.

Because extension API does NOT allow to add both button next to url field (to Open RSS reader) and to url field (to add RSS from current site). I had to create TWO extensions which communicates with each other!

I decided it was about time to dig into the new APIs in Opera 15+ and build some new extension with it.

Today I finally received an Opera pillow I ordered a few days ago. I wonder what kind of dreams I'm going to have sleeping on it :)

Recently in one of my blog posts I mentioned great library Require.JS. It has an API to load JavaScript snippets as modules. It works really great with popup files or with background file in speed dial extension.

Unfortunately, you can't use it in injected scripts for several reasons.
  1. Require.JS loads the snippets with script tags and we don't want to add any script tags to every page when our ex

Red Opera
As I am watching Opera development I have noticed that Opera developers like to focus on something, then for a time work really hard on it and finally slowly leave it with only occasional fixes.

Sometimes I discover or star using a great opera feature and I'm angry I haven't give it more attention when It was being developed because improving the feature now is nearly impossible. You can't pers
