Your information is always there, with Opera Link
Opera Link is a convenient way to share browser information between computers and devices, so you always have it with you, wherever you go.
With most devices, you can synchronize custom search engines and typed history. Any Web-site address you have typed in one device will be available in your other computers or mobile phones running Opera. You can even log in to the Web version of Opera Link
(on My Opera) to see your bookmarks, notes and Speed Dial from any browser.

Simple and automated
Log in once, and Opera will keep your browser data synchronized until you log out. Once you enable Opera Link, the synchronization process is automatic, and you can choose which information you want to synchronize across all your devices running Opera.
Your data is kept safe
Opera Link keeps your browser information safe, in case your hard drive crashes or you forget your laptop on the bus. A copy of your information is securely stored in a remote location, and all you have to do is log in to Opera Link
to get it back.
Maybe you can find this more "difficult" than an extension...
But yes, it's between Opera products but "You can even log in to the Web version of Opera Link

Accessing Opera Link from other browsers and devices
If you use a computer or device with a browser that does not support Opera Link, you can still access your browser information. Go to link.opera.com
to log in to the Web version of Opera Link.
2. Adblock Plus.
I think you confuse me with JonM33, I guess. I don't think to have said something about the Firefox extension. I have just given to you the trick about the css file for Opera.
But, for me, I don't think in Opera this is much more difficult, it's quite simple and direct: just to copy two files downloaded from a web site into your /home/.opera folder. Not really complicated, right?
As I already said, I use no widgets in Opera. I don't want this kind of thing. About Forecastfox, personally, this is unimportant for me and even consuming. The weather I see it when I wake up and if I want to have some previsions I just go occasionally to a weather web site for some minutes. That's all.
Er, you know AdBlock Plus blocks already the Flash content?
But hey, "Never be annoyed by a Flash animation again! Blocks Flash so it won't get in your way, but if you want to see it, just click on
..." (from the Mozilla web page of the extension) This is not the same thing than in Opera?
About Chrome, like I already said, it is impracticable for me (see the previous posts)
But, ok, it's your choice and I, and nobody I think, have not some problem with that.
