- OSpell - Spell Check Addon for Opera (only works in web pages, not needed in Opera 10 and newer)
- Operapedia - Merges Google Search with Wikipedia. (no longer works)
Important Notes About These Scripts:
- 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.
- 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.
- OSpell cannot work in Opera's mail client or Opera's chat client. It can only work in a web page.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
Custom Toolbar Setups
To install my custom toolbar setups for Opera, just click the following links:
- Opera 9.5 Toolbar Setup...
- Minimalist toolbar setup (Firefox/Internet Explorer user friendly)...
- Firefox-like toolbar setup for Opera 9.5...
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 Dictionary.com 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):
