Since Chrome, Firefox, Opera and the latest version of Edge are now using the same web extensions API, many extensions will now work cross-browser with little changes. In Opera, you can install the official extension from Opera, that will allow you to install chrome extensions right from the Chrome store. This makes it very easy to try extensions in Opera that have not officially been ported over to Opera. If you are an Opera fan you will defiantly want to try this out!
- Open Opera browser and install the Install Chrome Extensions extension
- Then go to any extension in the Chrome Store
- Finally, click the “Add to Opera” button to install the extension
