Sync Extensions & Extension Settings

  • Would it be possible for Opera to maintain a list of user extensions and their settings, and include the extensions with their setting in sync, so users can simply login and have those extensions and setting as part of their Opera experience whenever they login to Opera?

  • I vote for the same thing ! :D Cmon guys, chrome has it, firefox has it, why you don't yet ? It's pretty frustrating to backup from time to time the C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software folder. In case of OS failure and let's say i forget to backup that folder, what we gonna do ? Same thing applies for speed dial (the order).

  • i'm onboard with this. love the feature in chrome. till then people can use hekasoft backup and restore. works great.

    Yea i know about that but it would be nice an integrated solution :) without the need of an 3rd party app.

    well for now it's what we have.

  • I want extension syncing as well. But settings and state of extensions (enabled or disabled) should be per-PC. Sometimes you want different settings between PC and laptop devices. But having them synced is certainly a must.

    In fact I want 3 more things to be synced:

    • extensions
    • RSS subscriptions
    • search engines

    Almost everyone use more than 1 device these days and managing all this stuff over and over again for each PC is just ridiculous, especially for things that are universally useful across all systems (liek synced custom search engines and keywords for them).

  • Yes. Yes. and YES! This would be fantastic.

    if all is going to be synced then ones personal extension settings need to be saved too, just like chrome does.
