@brainierweb until jerrykrinock answered, I will try to give you an answer. You may not have noticed, but over the past 3-4 years, the opera extensions have had the same problems, they have remained, nothing has changed. You ask, would I like another company to interfere in my affairs? if I can’t work correctly and my clients have problems from my “bad” work, yes, such a company should either close or cooperate with a company that can solve problems. If you indicate that google may block some extensions, so what? there will only be 3-5% of these, but the remaining 95% of normal extensions will work and update normally, do you understand this?
the Opera has its own APIs - Opera and Google chrome work on one engine, the extension for chrome works fine on opera
moderation policy - should not be a bureaucratic tool, it should work correctly, which, unfortunately, is not here
