And my question is: which do and which don't?
Somehow Peter Beverlo can generate that list for Chromium automatically.
Can opera do the same somewhere?
man opera with up-to date info would be a good start.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
Does Opera support the --headless switch properly, or will Opera support --headless in the future, like chromium and chrome.
I tried it on Opera Developer/Beta, it runs, it hides the main window, doesn't show anything except the menu
Is there a list of all command line switches available for Opera, something like
opera-developer --help doesn't help much.
Great, crashing immediately. From the fastest to the slowest, doesn't move at all, doesn't start.
Same problem as described on the blog. I use Opera Developer to develop and try out extensions. No more I guess, forced to be on hold.
Known issue, I don't like the attitude shipping products in this state, it's disrespectful to other software, forcing a user to remove Chromium. Better skip a version, if you can't make it work.
Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
@shwetankdixit, I don't see anything about Linux mentioned in the documentation.
On my DNA-23526 bug-report I got this answer:
Could you try using following paths /etc/chromium/native-messaging-hosts or: <OPERA_PROFILE_DIR>/NativeMessagingHosts Profile path will be displayed on opera:about page.`
Opera:about doesn't show anything about a google-chrome path, but mentioned path worked at that moment. Please don't blame me for filing more bug reports when it stopped working. The path really changed between versions, without documentation or rationale.
And it feels wrong and risky:
If Google-Chrome isn't installed, the google-chrome path is a path any program can create/write to.
And when you have Chrome installed and decide to drop it because you prefer Opera, and remove Chrome and all of it's settings, suddenly Opera fails. Doesn't make sense to me.
@kszularz thx, maybe this can help, the bugs I filed on this issue:
I agree, the documentation seems to be copied, and not updated. I can't imagine the path for a manifest should be a google path instead of it's own .config/opera path, although I agree that is reality, but I consider this a bug.
What happens when you install your extensions, I can get them working using the Google Chrome path for the manifest.
Yes, Opera uses the path for Google Chrome to look for manifests:
Now I know why the example works, I had it also installed in Google Chrome, not my own extensions. When I place the manifest in above Google Chrome location the extension starts working.
Will file another bug report, pfff.
I agree, it is broken. It was broken, I filed a bug report. DNA-23526, They fixed it.
Then it broke again sometime, at least for extensions in developer mode, same extension works in Chromium, it doesn't in Opera. Mostly on error ***Can't find manifest for native messaging host com.my_company.my_application, while it's there. I field another bug report, but no fix DNA-43909. Since then I use Chromium a bit more.
Path to manifest (I use it in opera-developer).
Annoyingly, there is no error message, when you have set the extension ID wrong
"allowed_origins": [ "chrome-extension://xxx/" ]
Since Google started annoying me enormously with there
One account. All services Google approach, which is not only breaking the law, but also complete nonsense for being easy for customers in the end, because Google pushes a enormous amount of pop-ups for updates and upgrades on any Android Device, and asking multiple times consent again, and pushes and combines services I don't want or need. Easy for them. An insult to users.
So Android became Android AOSP here, no more Google play (which started to ask about my creditcard daily), I don't miss that at all.
Luckily Opera is offering their products outside the Play-store nowadays.
But the latest version for Mini claims it is not the latest version, that's a bit confusing:
Why is that?
@emoller, thx, it annoys me for a couple of years and now you ask me I, only two examples come up directly
but myriad more on JS driven sites.
Also for consideration, support for Sitelinks Search Box, search defined in JSON-LD or other microdata.
"query-input": "required name=search_term_string"
See that a lot nowadays in Wordpress driven sites, even a physical search-box is not necessary here.
I would prefer an option to remove unwanted default engines, it sucks to have space eaten by services from multinationals I don't like / want to do business with. On my tablet the first engine I can add, is always hidden, so I have to scroll to it.
Opera always complained about MS behaviour of bundling and pushing certain services or products. Opera does the same now, and it can only do it because it's too small to be able to misuse market-power. I don mind default settings, as long as it's a setting. Search engine should be a setting. And I wonder where to disable suggestions. I really think it´s a privacy concern. People are not aware all they type is transferred to Google right away, without any consent (before they press search)
How do I configure search-engines?
it doesn't like users it can't track. That is exactly the reason I don't like Google. Opera was always the best friend of any internet user. Now it seems to be Google's best friend. Disappointing and short term sight. But maybe I oversee a feature. How do I set any custom search engine as default. Or should I use Firefox for this.
I doubt that version is updated, I'm not sure it is secure. But I liked it.
I miss extensions myself. Problem is, Google doesn't like it, so Opera doesn't do it. Moneywise, contractwise or the new management doesn't think it's worthwhile, or whatever for what reason. It's a pity.
Firefox is the only alternative, it does offer extensions.
Actually I'm glad your delisting and offering everything from your own download page.
Since Google P(l)ay started to nag me every day for entering payment details, started listening to everything I say, Google Now Hotwords, started to record more often where My location is, than I can think about it myself, I removed all GAPPS, and move to Android AOSP and F-Droid.
I can recommend every-one to take that step. Google is turning Android (Wear) into Ankle monitor/Bracelet.
So we need alternative download spots.
Opera Mobile Classic doesn't work.
That does work now, it has been updated, to 12.1
Yes you can. I have Opera Presto, Developer en Beta and Next running side a side. No problem.
sudo apt-get install opera opera-beta opera-developer opera-next
Only problem I encountered was first start after install, Opera Blink could hang importing the profiles, especially passwords. Second time everything was fine.
Is there any keyboard shortcut support for Opera Android?
On most Android browsers you can make a new tab with CTRL N or CTRL T and TAB to the url field to type text.
Also ALT ESC should go back to the HOME screen, working in mostly all apps, but not in Opera.
A pity, I think it can use all shortcuts for desktop version. I must say a tablet and a physical keyboard is a fine combination.
