Opera edition/widjet plz
« on: May 12, 2006, 08:58:24 PM »
I use opera, cause it's faster and better than firefox, so it would be great if you had an opera edition, or if someone could do a widget for opera. I managed to put the downloaded html version on a panel in opera, using the "small screen view" (only in opera,   ), but i always have to put the url and change the hash algorithm, I thing I'm gonna edit the html version, but the url there's no escape.

Not sure if there are any developers active who have Opera and have time to create and mantain this edition right now.

Maybe you can be the lead developer of that edition?

I would do that, but I don't know how to

Yep. I think at the moment all of the volunteers' time is maxed out... sorry. Hopefully that will change, though.

This is not the topic subject, but I agree that firefox is better, but just because of the extensions. If opera had extensions I think it would be better. And in my pc firefox takes toooo long to inicialize, opera is faster.

No, but you did start out your post with pure flame-bait, so what did you expect?

Firefox screams on my PC... but then, I do have a fast PC. I have heard of many issues with Opera too... nothing is perfect...

Firefox and Opera are both great browsers, and the only reason I am using FF more than Opera is the extension Password Maker. If someone could port this to Opera, I would switch to Opera full time.

I really doubt that will happen anytime soon, Karan.

I tried to learn about Opera's Widgets, only to find out that it would be basically porting the Yahoo! Widgets Edition instead of the Firefox Edition, so I just gave up trying to learn more as a result. Why learn something if you're never going to really use it?

Unless there's something in Opera that works like Firefox extensions, I have no interest in dealing with Opera.

I'm a fellow Opera user, and have ported PasswordMaker to Opera. This is still a prototype... so if you use Opera, please help test it!

To install the widget, download this file: http://passwordmaker.org/proto/caspian/passwordMaker.zip

Then, drag the downloaded file into an open Opera window. (Or, in Opera, go to File > Open...)

Enjoy!

Thanks,

Thanks, Eric -- I just submitted the widget to widgets.opera.com. After it is reviewed, it'll become available for download.
