Is Opera ending support for Silverlight the same time Google ends it? I just noticed on an internal Silverlight based page I got the message that it will soon be unsupported.
Opera uses the same engine as Google Chrome does, aka Chromium. The current version of the Chromium engine on Opera 32 is Chromium 45, the Chromium version that permanently removed NPAPI support from Chrome. Now, since NPAPI plugins still work on Opera, I gotta wonder if NPAPI will still be a part of Opera. My hunch tells me that it won't stay on Opera for long. My advice is to stick with the current Opera version, that is unless your Opera auto upgrades. Mine doesn't auto update, thankfully.
EDIT: As of right now, I don't know of any third party extension that has a workaround for this IF NPAPI support is removed from Opera. There's IE Tab but Opera doesn't support that extension.
