Opera YouWatch – Tracks or Hides Watched Videos on Youtube

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

If you spend a lot of time on YouTube, you might find this one interesting …

One of the things that is not perfect on Youtube is the fact that videos that you have already watched are still showing up in search results. Youtube could at the very least add a marker to let users know that they have watched that particular video in the past. Not everyone may think this is important but if you ever researched a topic on Youtube by searching and using related video links you may appreciate a feature like this.


Opera Make It So Extension – Resizes Images Automatically

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

It’s kind of surprising that Opera needs an extension to do this; both IE and Firefox will resize images automatically without an add-on.

Images on the Internet may sometimes be larger in resolution than the web browser window. This may happen if the web browser window is not maximized, but happens as well if the image’s resolution is larger than that of the monitor resolution.


Opera LinksRedirector Extension – Redirect Links Automatically

Friday, January 28th, 2011

This one sounds kind of cool; particularly the part that lets you skip intro pages and go directly to a main page …

Some websites and services display interstitial pages which some users may not want to see. Google Images is an example for that. A click on an image search result does not load the image directly in full size, but an interstitial page. Users who only want to see the image in full size need to click again on that page before they can see it.


Opera Popup Statusbar Extension

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

I don’t think I’d use this myself, but some might find it interesting …

Popup Statusbar may be an interesting Opera extension for users who want as much screen estate as possible for the websites and services displayed in the Internet browser. What does it do? It simply displays the url target links in an overlay window on the page which effectively makes the display in the status bar redundant.


Breaking – Opera 11 Will Get Extensions

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

It will be interesting to see if this expands Opera’s user base …

Who would have thought that? ESPEN ANDRÉ ØVERDAHL over at Opera has just revealed that the next big iteration of the Opera web browser will have extensions. Yes, extensions like Firefox or Google Chrome. That’s probably the one major feature that is missing in Opera currently. Think of the possibilities for a moment. With extensions, it will be possible to port several of the most popular and important extensions to the browser, which will surely increase its popularity overall.
