Perform reverse image searches across the Internet and using a wide range of search engines with the help of this nifty Opera extension
Ever wanted to search for a specific picture on the Internet only to discover that Google’s image search feature is not perfectly suited for the job at hand? If the answer is yes, and if you happen to be an Opera user, then you might be interested in what Search by Image has to offer.
Search by Image is a cross-browser extension (also available for Firefox), that allows you to perform reverse image searches across the Internet with the least amount of effort. What’s most impressive about the extension is just how easy it is to use.
You can perform image searches directly from Opera’s right-click contextual menu, or the browser’s toolbar (where the extension resides). Another great aspect of this tool is the fact that it comes with support for more than 30 search engines such as Google Images, Bing Images, Yandex.Images, Baidu Image Search, Sogou Images, and so forth.
The searches in question can be performed by a singular search engine, or you can enable all at once directly from the top-level context menu. Search by Image can detect most images on a web page, including those declared in CSS.
There are various search modes as well. For example, you can use the “Select” function that works both from the context menu and the toolbar. It involves you having to select an image on the page, then the extension will automatically bring up the search results using the selected search engine.
The “Select & Upload” method involves you having to select an image on the page, as the extension fetches the image and uploads it. The “Capture” option is also quite useful, as it allows you to select and capture a page area (with pictures included), and then upload it. Interestingly enough, you can also upload images from your computer, or paste them directly from the clipboard and let the extension perform the search.
To conclude, Search by Image for Opera is offers you what may just be the easiest way of performing reverse image searches on the Internet right now. It’s easy to use, very unobtrusive, and it packs a lot more features that usually meet the eye at first glance.

Improve your overall web browsing experience with the help of one of the best extensions out there, an ad-blocker that is both customizable and easy on your computer's resources
Ad blockers have become an instrumental tool for most of us, and for a good reason, considering the ever-increasing number of Internet ads.
The rising star of this select category of tools goes by the name of uBlock Origin. In just a few words, uBlock Origin is a cross-browser extension (also available for Chrome and Firefox) that was designed for the sole purpose of improving your web browsing experience by blocking everything from ads and trackers all the way up to other adware-related elements.
Right off the bat, here's what you need to know: it's easy to install (just like most Opera extensions), highly configurable and, best of all, extremely light on your computer's resources.
It enforces its might through the power of popular anti-ad filters such as EasyList, EasyPrivacy, Peter Lowe's Ad server list, and Malware Domains. That said, it's perfectly capable of running on its own, right out of the box, without any intervention on your part.
However, if you so choose to, it's capabilities can be improved with the addition of custom lists and filters, but do keep in mind that the more sources you add, the more resources this tiny extension will require.
Getting to grips with this extension is also, quite easy. For instance, turning it off for a specific website only requires you to click the large blue button from its compact UI.
Take a quick visit to the Setting section, and you are bound to discover other useful opportunities. For example, you can unblock a website by adding it to the dedicated Whitelist section. The "enable-at-your-own-risk" advanced features will also keep tech-savvy users satisfied.
To be honest, there aren't that many ad blockers on all the three mentioned browsers' official stores and good ones at that. For Opera, at least, this is one of the few choices, but it's also one of the best (if not the best - but we don't want to appear biased).

Block annoying cookie warnings on pretty much any website you visit, with this invaluable Opera extension that makes browsing anonymously a lot more enjoyable
Websites are required by EU regulations to notify users when they install cookies, and you’ve probably seen these messages lots of times when browsing the web. While, for the most part, they aren’t too irritating, they become a nuisance when you’re browsing anonymously.
I don't care about cookies for Opera is a clever extension that can block these messages on almost all websites you visit, without blocking the cookies themselves. What's more, it is also available for Chrome, Firefox and Pale Moon.
If you let your browser store cookies freely and don’t use a VPN service, you are only going to receive cookie notifications once from each website, which isn’t too much of a bother, especially if you don’t visit new web pages too often.
However, users who rely on a VPN service (such as the one included in Opera) and those who delete cookies whenever they close their browser face a different issue. Since websites can’t tell that the warning has already been provided, you will receive the notification on every visit, which is clearly not ideal.
While some cookies can be malicious, most are just designed to improve your browsing experience. This extension simply prevents the EU-required message from being displayed, a warning that isn’t particularly helpful in any case.
I don't care about cookies for Opera supports the vast majority of popular websites that offer to install cookies, and you can even help extend the database by reporting websites that still display warnings.
Once installed, this add-on can be accessed from the Extensions panel or the browser context menu. If you wish, you can even remove it from the context menu, though this integration is useful for delivering reports or disabling the extension on various websites.
A small, incredibly useful extension that has no real downsides, I don't care about cookies for Opera is perfect for those who wish to block the ever-present warnings required by EU law, and it is a must-have for VPN users or those who delete cookies on browser shutdown.
