GT500's Opera Customizations

User JavaScript Addons

A couple of User JavaScript Addons for Opera that add some nice features:

Important Notes About These Scripts:

  1. Operapedia does not work with newer versions of Opera. I would believe it only works with versions older than Opera 9.5, but I have not tested to see if the Wikipedia frame still displays as it was supposed to. The Operapedia page is being kept here for nostalgia.
  2. OSpell became obsolete once Opera 10 was released. As of Opera 10, there is now real-time/in-line spell check in Opera, so OSpell is no longer needed. It is also being kept here for nostalgia.
  3. OSpell cannot work in Opera's mail client or Opera's chat client. It can only work in a web page.
  4. OSpell transmits text over the Internet in order to allow a remote server to check spelling. These servers do not collect any personal information, but if you are paranoid about privacy then you may not want to use OSpell on any personal information.
  5. OSpell does not check spelling in real-time. Many people call this "in-line spell check". Technically OSpell checks your spelling "in-line", but it does not do it in real-time (or as you type).
  6. Operapedia embeds an iframe in each Google search page. This iframe contains a related Wikipedia search. Normally this iframe will only display if the Wikipedia search found an article that matched your Google search, so if you don't see the Wikipedia iframe, then simply click the text that says "Wikipedia" to expand it.
  7. I did not make either of these User JavaScript Addons. I merly provide webspace to download them from. Each article provides credits on who created the scripts, so please give credit to the proper people!

Custom Toolbar Setups

To install my custom toolbar setups for Opera, just click the following links:

After installing the Firefox-like toolbar setup, you will need to press Ctrl+F8 twice on your keyboard to properly remove the old address bar. I am not certain if this is due to a bug in my setup, or a bug in Opera.

Custom Search Fields

To add Wikipedia, Yahoo!, and searches to Opera, just click the following links, and drag the field that it creates onto the proper toolbar (Please note that I have no idea if any of these still work with current versions of Opera, and that they are being kept here for nostalgia):
