This is a rundown of the top 5 among Opera extensions. Let’s get started!

5. Snap Links

If you find yourself opening lots of links on the same page, Snap Links ought to be amongst your top 5 Opera extensions. Just click and drag a box around any number of links and Opera will open them all in the background at once.

4. Download Helper

Getting files from the popular direct download sites can be quite a chore, forcing you to wait 60 seconds or more for each file. If you’re getting more than one, the tedium can be overwhelming. Easily one of the top 5 Opera extensions, Download Helper bypasses those counters and automates the process for you.

3. Easy Translation

Unexpectedly encountering a site that’s heavy on an unfamiliar language can be jarring. And sometimes that’s where the information you need is hiding. Easy Translation will take all of that text and run it through Google Translate for you with one click, and replace it as it appears on the page.

2. Facebook Preview

These days, it’s not unusual to have Facebook constantly open in its own window or tab, just so you can stay on top of what’s happening. Free up that space with Facebook Preview, which automatically retrieves your notifications and displays them in a small, integrated box, so you never even have to check back unless you need to.

1. NotScripts

Blocking harmful scripts and popups isn’t just for Firefox users — NotScripts, deservedly the first of the top 5 Opera extensions, accomplishes this same feat unobtrusively. After a while, you’ll forget what typical browsing looked like before you installed it.

This list of the top 5 Opera extensions barely scratches the surface — if you think Opera is missing a feature, there’s likely an extension for it. These, however, offer the best utility, and will enhance anyone’s browsing!

Opera 11.62: A Harmony of Speed and Security http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/opera/news-opera/opera-11-62-a-harmony-of-speed-and-security/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/opera/news-opera/opera-11-62-a-harmony-of-speed-and-security/#respond Mon, 02 Apr 2012 12:10:24 +0000 http://oneclick.i.biz/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=40 The Opera browser has long been recognized as one of the fastest around, consistently outperforming Internet Explorer and Firefox in speed tests. The release of Opera 11.62 provides several updates that improve security and reliability, while maintaining the speed that has been one of the browser’s hallmark strengths.

The “security and stability” updates included in Opera 11.62 address seven specific browser vulnerabilities found to affect version 11.61. Two of the more serious flaws, deemed “high severity,” allowed hackers to use certain security holes to trick users into downloading and executing potentially malicious code on their computers. To ensure the safest browsing experience, users should regularly check the Opera website to make sure they are running the most recent version.

The software engineers at Opera have been busy ensuring that Opera 11.62 has all of the features users expect in modern browsers. Enhancements such as private browsing, malware detection, fraud warnings, tabbed windows and HTML5 support are all part of the new release. A user-invoked option called Opera Turbo uses dynamic compression and caching to speed browsing on slow connections.

One of Opera’s most appealing characteristics is its support for extensions and widgets. Extensions are code modules designed to supplement the browser’s standard functionality or appearance. Installation involves launching executables that inject additional code into the browser’s original programming. Once installed, users can make tweaks such as changing the browser’s color scheme or enabling YouTube video downloads. Widgets are mini-applications that users can download to their desktops and run as separate programs. Although widgets don’t require Opera to be open in order to run, they do require the browser to be installed on the user’s machine. Opera 11.62 extensions and widgets are available the Opera website.

The developers at Norway-based Opera Software ASA are the brains behind the Opera browser. Since its founding in 1994, the company has relied upon a philosophy of advancing free information access to drive its development efforts. Opera 11.62 runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. The Opera Mini 7 mobile version currently dominates the portable browser market, beating Android by a slim margin.
