General Development Firefox add-ons, or extensions, are small programs that run inside the browser in order to customize some behaviors. In theory, it is possible to develop and maintain a multilingual, multiversion and multiOS Firefox add-on. In practice, there are many obstacles to overcome in order to create and to maintain a working Firefox add-on in one language for one Firefox version and for one OS.

I suggest author to try creating UserJS for Opera browser with almost same functionality and feel the difference - UserJS are way easier!

UserJS came to my mind as well.

Has anyone done an in-depth comparison of capabilities between extensions in Firefox & UserJS in Opera?

That depends on what you're doing.

I read the first few paragraphs here, and the author could have saved himself much trouble by writing a user script -- everything he needed is possible, and most features would be cross-compatible with Opera and Greasemonkey.

Since my time is not infinitely stretchable, I do not expect to use UserJS. Thanks for the suggestion.
