The simple thing would be to allow extensions from opera desktop to be used on opers mobile. Then we could use 3rd party adblock. They're both chrome-based, so not sure why desktop allows extensions/addons/whatever, and opera mobile does not
Yes, porting the desktop version of Opera on Android it's easy-breezy. They have some clues how it works and they hired some new Mechs toiling over in 3 shifts 24/7 to raise this feature on. I've heard that to work harder and faster they're listening Daft Punk and 'are praying to their Neon God to stop the mind's noise in attempt to discover the forth "minky".
Maybe I'm missing something here, but I can't see where @cl007 said anything about "porting the desktop version of Opera on Android..."?
Actually, @cl007's hypothesis is pretty much correct, as I have extensions loaded on a browser built from opera dev source.
I have the duckduckgo extension, and a chromium Sample Context Menus API extension loaded, and working.
The majority of Chrome extensions are cross platform, so the "desktop version of Opera on Android...?" statement has no substance.
From my browser:
Extensions on browser:// URLs Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android
Enables running extensions on browser:// URLs, where extensions explicitly request this permission. #extensions-on-chrome-urls
So why "flame" the suggestion that Opera for Android could run Opera extensions, when it can?
