Default Get Chrome extensions in Opera and Vivaldi

Although it's easy enough to get Chrome extensions in Vivaldi by going to the Chrome Web Store - that's where their extensions come from, people may not be aware that you can also get Chrome extensions in Opera. I posted about this a few years ago here, but it's slightly different now. The extension you need to have installed in Opera is this one:

Install Chrome Extensions extension - Opera add-ons

It's basically an updated version of 'Download Chrome Extension'. Once it's installed, you can get any extension from the Chrome Web Store to install in Opera. You can install extensions only. Themes are not supported.

If you want to install Opera extensions in Vivaldi, to find out how to do it have a look here:

The developers of the extensions probably try to sell it out to all the top browsers. It could go by the same name or something similar. You can even search Google for your desired extension followed by the browser name.

You should get add-ons by using each browser's extensions site. Doing a search could lead you to getting dodgy add-ons. Chrome will let you have add-ons from the Chrome Web Store only and there are specific methods for getting one browser's extensions to install on a different browser as shown in post #1.

In Issue 451 of WU in "New Browser Tools" there was a heads up on an add-on called Extension Police (bit.ly/police451). This checks out any Chrome Web
Store extensions as there is evidence of some rogue add-ons in there.
Might be useful to you if you use the Chrome Web store. Read the link for more detail. I would imagine it would work in Vivaldi, et al. who also use Chrome extensions.

Yes, I mentioned this somewhere else fosseway, although I haven't tried it:

Chrome add-on 'Extension Police' WU issue 451 - Web User Forums

Incidentally, when Opera 55 is released, it won't be necessary to have the 'Install Chrome Extensions extension' installed in Opera any more. More info here:

You can now install Chrome extensions in Opera directly - Web User Forums
