What is Open in Opera Browser?
"Open in Opera Browser" is a Chrome extension using a native-client approach, offering streamlined link transfer to the Opera browser from Chrome. It works by capturing left-clicks or using a context menu, thereby eliminating the need to use system's clipboard. Furthermore, it offers features like sending the current page, all tabs, or closing a tab when sent to Opera. It even opens Opera if not already open. Supports Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. Note: Opera is a separate trademark, not affiliated with this extension.
By using an open-source native client, this extension transfers links between your browse and Opera browser. The extension can configure to capture left-click over links and send configured hostnames to the Opera browser. This extension also provides a right-click context menu item to send links to the Opera browser without the need to copy the link to the system's clipboard first. Note that for this extension to send links, you need to install a small NodeJS-based native client. Without this native integration, the extension is not working. At this moment, the native-client only supports Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems.
Features: Send the current page to the Opera browser. Send all tabs to the Opera browser. Close a tab when the link is sent to the Opera browser. Send tabs in the current window to the Opera browser. Open Opera browser if no instance is present. Add a new tab to the Opera browser if an instance is detected. Support managed storage to configure the extension by a domain administrator instead of directly configuring each extension on a network.
