Install Chrome Extensions in Opera (and Vice Versa)

Good day people, today i will be writing in how to install google chrome extensions on opera Installing Chrome extensions in Opera 15 is easy: First, install

the Chrome Extension Installer for Opera Next 15. Then go to

the Chrome Web Store and install whatever you want. The

Web Store won't complain that you need a supported browser

or anything—it'll just work. The extension you want will

download and install, and it'll work normally.

To install Opera Next extensions in Chrome, you'll need to

download the Opera extension file, rename it, and install it in


1) First, make sure Opera Next is installed.

2) Then, go to the new Opera add-ons page. You have to visit

this specific page in Opera Next—this is important because

the page auto-detects which version you're using, and will only

show you compatible extensions for that version of Opera. To

get the extensions that'll also work in Chrome, you have to use

Opera 15 to browse the store..

3) When you find one, instead of clicking "Add to Opera,"

right-click the button and select "Save Linked Content As..."

and save the .nex extension file somewhere you can get to it.

4) Grab the .nex file and rename it to end in .crx.

5) Open Chrome, and drag and drop the .crx file onto Chrome.

You'll be prompted to review the permissions before

installing it, but that should be all.

That's all there is to it. The process works pretty quickly, and

the downside of going from Opera to Chrome is that you need

both installed. Still, it's worth noting that the Opera add-ons

page is pretty sparse when it comes to Opera Next add-ons

right now, mostly because Opera 15 is still in active

development. It'll fill up pretty quickly, and with time you'll

be able to find extensions there you may not find for Chrome.

Even so, right now this is a bit more useful for getting your

favorite Chrome extensions into Opera if you want to give the

new engine a whirl.
