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."

Well I don't fully understand the details of the Opera implementation myself (or Mozilla's, or Chrome's--I'm not a developer), and I don't care as long as this makes way for two things. AdBlock Plus and NoScript. I can't browse the Web without them. Opera's current implementation of "content blocking" is a joke to get around blatantly pissing off advertising companies, and for scripts, it's all or nothing. Opera already has so much functionality it barely needs any more--these are, IMO, the only two glaring omissions.
