I've been with opera nearly from the beginning but this tears it. Sadly, I can't abide by commercial breaches of my system security for the sake of the almighty dollar.
The Official "Amazon Assistant" extension just installed itself on my browser while surfing at amazon, either through clickjacking or opera blatantly allowing it. Either way it's a crime!
From the "extension" Permissions:

--which means it reserved the right to add more code at will, an absolute no go...even if I HAD asked for it.
For fellow penguins, I am currently using a just installed Artix(arch) Linux and I do not have developer mode enabled or any third party extensions added to the browser. Version: 75.0.3969.218 installed from Aur yesterday
In these times of corporate takeover and rampant invasions I now recommend folks consider another browser, preferably an actual opensource one endorsed by the FSF. Icecat and Librewolf are high on my list at the moment as they aren't following the Google/Firefox corporate mess. Opera is based on Chromium btw. I also discovered they are tracking those synced password they claim to be encrypting. "for your safety" While also leaving them free to air for anyone who steals your box. --I recommend using an offline encryption key storage you can trust. Choose FOSS or choose slavery.
