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."

I hope somebody makes an Opera version of Vimperator. It's the only thing I miss from Firefox.

Doubtful, as none of the other extension systems are not nearly as flexible as Gecko's.

Bingo, someone said it!

These are HTML/CSS/JS patches, not extensions.

Would Google ever be forced to provide extension capability to block ads, if adblock+ didn’t already exist?

These sandboxed extensions allow browser vendors to veto innovation. They’re good up to a point, but I feel they set a bad precedent (similar to Apple app-store).
