12.17: Open New Opera in a tab inside old opera

  • Hello,

    I used this button to open same page with Internet explorer in a new tab in opera. So anyone knows how to, or if its possible to open the latest version of opera inside a tab in old opera. The button code is as follows:

    Go to page, "javascript:(function(){if(location.protocol.match(/^(javascript|about|opera):$/i))return;var l=location.href;var t=(document.getElementsByTagName('title')[0]?document.getElementsByTagName('title')[0].text:l).replace(/</g,'<').replace(/>/g,'>');var w=window.open('','_blank');w.document.documentElement.innerHTML='<head><title>'+t+' - using Internet Explorer rendering</title><style type=\x22text/css\x22>body{margin:0;padding:0;overflow:hidden;}embed{border:none;}</style></head><body><embed type=\x22application/x-meadco-neptune-ax\x22 width=\x22100%%\x22 height=\x22100%%\x22 param-location=\x22'+l+'\x22></embed></body>'})();",,"View in IE",View

  • You mean from old Opera to the new one. If so, would something similar to this work for you?

    Also you can try creating your own button at http://nontroppo.org/tools/buttonmaker/

    I tried the button maker, says too many commas

  • Here is how to do it manually.. in the following line change the path of the exe to your Opera or any other browser

    opera:/button/Execute program,"C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera developer\30.0.1812.0\opera.exe","%u"

    Then create a new bookmark (have a name to it) and paste your line as the address, after that drag it wherever you want.

    Don't work so far

  • Anyway the original button uses something called neptune plug-in http://meadco-neptune-plugin.software.informer.com/2.0/ to open same page in new tab in IE. Works pretty good, I copied the code to my right click menu. Probly only work for IE tho
