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.

  • yes. I need this feature too!!!
    Sync extensions (add-on) is now the only reason I use Chrome.

  • Because Opera doesn't support it.

    Came to go on Firefox

  • 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!
