Emulation of Opera's original image blocking feature for new Opera
The way the old one worked is you'd right-click on the page somewhere and the whole page would become whitewashed and you'd be in image blocking mode and then hold down the shift key ad then any image you clicked (you could still see the images, but everything was faded -- whitewashed, as I put it) would be permanently removed from the web page until you unblocked it. If you didn't hold down the shift key, but rather just clicked on an image, every single image for the parent URL that a particular image was representing would be blocked.
Would it be possible to make an extension to emulate this?
It's not as hands-on as Operas content blocking feature. With AdBlock, you have to obtain the URLs of every image you want to block and add it to a list. With the original Opera, you just go into content blocking mode, and click whatever you want to block and that's it.

Sad for you. If you want Operas content blocking feature you have to use Opera 12.x.
Extensions for new Opera are mostly a helpless try to fix all vanished tools and pros which existed in older Opera.
I know what is missng in new Opera. Add i'm not amused about all missing....
You recognized the Extension Adblock?
Doesn't stop page loading the way its suppose to. I am honestly not sure which of the adblock extensions actually save bandwith and requests.
