Sidebar extensions

FYI: Opera is the first browser to include sidebar extensions. Installing this type of extension adds a new button to the sidebar, when the user clicks on that button it opens a panel.

Opera 30 with extensions installed in the sidebar

After installing a few extensions from the Opera add-ons repository, you can do these things: ‘Write notes, tweet on the go, or get a dedicated media player’ while working on other open tabs.

After installing an extension on the sidebar, you can click on ‘+’ sign to install more (check the above screenshot).

You can try these:

  • Tweetdeck sidebar
  • Google Keep sidebar
  • Site Settings Sidebar
  • V7 Bookmarks and Notes
  • Browse++ Sidebar

Accidentally deleted a bookmark? You can restore it by going to trash folder and clicking ‘undo delete’.

Supports Media Source Extensions with H.264 which enables you to watch 60FPS videos in YouTube’s HTML5 player.
