Opera Software Opera Extensions have been confirmed as a feature of Opera 11. "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."

"Extensions will be based on the W3C Widget specifications and this is being considered for an Open Standard effort."

Translation: "We have created a special snowflake that is best suited for promoting Opera, not functionality in general. We want the leverage to impose our special snowflake on others so our implementation can seem superior to other companies playing catch-up."

Same song, new cover.
