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."

There are one or two features I wouldn't mind adding to Opera with extensions, but I'd much rather have Opera's built in features work properly.

It's hard to get excited about new features and improvements when some of Opera's best existing features are still a bug ridden mess in 10.5-7.

Still, it's nice to see a substantial and practical change to the browser, rather than the silly gimmicks, pointless (and sometimes usability damaging) eye-candy, and trivial aesthetic tweaking from recent updates. Maybe there'll be extensions to improve long neglected Opera features, like its now primitive session management.
