Option to "Sync Extensions" in Advanced Sync Settings

Re: Backup Addons
Dear Opera Browser Developer
Please add an option to "sync extensions" in Advanced sync settings.
It would save a lot of time for a lot of people.
Today, without the extension sync option, every time someone buys a new device, they need to MANUALLY ADD ALL EXTENSIONS.
Also, whenever someone wants to add a new extension, they need to DO SO ON EVERY DEVICE they use opera.
Imagine, if there was such an option for syncing extensions, ALL THAT REPETITIVE, WASTED TIME, could be USED MORE PRODUCTIVELY.

I believe this has been suggested before.
Opera is a wonderful browser. I just started using it, after a few years of Chrome and many many years of Firefox use.
I feel Opera is better than both of them.
One thing though: when installing Chrome (e.g. within VM), then it adds the add-ons automatically.
Very handy and something I hope/wish developers will add to Opera.
Positively meant suggestion.

Sync extensions (add-on) is now the only reason I use Chrome.

Because Opera doesn't support it.

This just blows my mind for years. Everybody I know or read about while using Opera misses this feature yet is not even planned nor implemented! It is really annoying to set up all the extensions again. Does it sound productive to keep a spreadsheet of your extensions and every time having to install it manually? No. Just no. Please, consider this!

This has been asked many years ago, even since Opera Presto, around 2010 and for Opera Blink since the beginning.
No communication related from Opera.
You should Sync your current Profile or Keep a Template Profile on DropBox or similar for new installations.
"Off Topic Tip"
Follow the Signature's Backup | Reset link.
Take the opportunity to start a Backup plan and even create a Template Profile.

This could save a ton of time for a lot of people. I personally use many extensions (from both chrome web store and opera extensions store).
I think the developers may be hesitate to include extensions from third party extension stores.
But please [Shouting removed] of the extensions installed on the opera browser account. That will help opera users more comfy.
