Opera has Officially Supported Extensions for Chrome

Opera on Chrome

Now there is no reason not to use Opera: it has a free VPN, interesting features, and a huge catalog of extensions.

The developers of Opera released a new beta version of the desktop browser with index 55. It received many small innovations and several key ones, among which official support for extensions for Chrome.

Opera on Chrome

Add-ons can only be installed from the Chrome Web Store – you will not be able to use the extensions stored on your computer (perhaps this is for security reasons). When you visit the Chrome Web Store via Opera, a notification appears at the top of the page that prompts you to install the browser program selected by the user. The new version of the web browser from Norwegian developers is based on Chromium 68.0.3440.42 – in theory, the “Chrome” add-ons will work in Opera as well as in the browser from Google.

Perhaps the modest expansion store was one of the main (if not the only) drawbacks of Opera: the absence of favorite add-ons crossed out all the advantages of this browser for many users, including a proprietary free VPN service.

In addition to the above, Opera 55 beta has updated the settings menu (now it’s done in the “island” style) and a mini-window that provides information about the security of the sites visited.
