The best extensions for Opera focused on productivity

Opera is an excellent browser that receives much less love than it deserves. We’ve talked about it before, it’s one of the best alternatives available, especially if you use Chrome and want to change the air.

This is partly because in Opera you can install any Chrome extension and you do not have to do much to achieve it. However, this browser has its own library of extensions created especially for him, and today we will recommend 11 of the best focused on productivity.

Instant Translate

With Instant Translate you have an easy and fast way to translate any selected text in the browser immediately and without having to leave the current page.

Just select a word or sentence and press SHIFT + T , or select, right click and choose the option in the pop-up menu. You can translate up to 20,000 characters, and it supports 103 languages.

I do not care about cookies

If you are fed up with the cookie warnings that all websites must show thanks to European laws, with the extension I do not care about cookies you forget them forever. No more wasting time accepting pop-up messages that appear every time you empty browsing data or use a private tab.


Peek is a great extension that allows you to “take a look” at various types of documents on the web before you decide to download them. For example, you can move the cursor over a link to a PDF, a PowerPoint presentation or a video, and get a pop-up preview .

Nimbus Screen Capture

Nimbus Screen Capture is an add-on for Opera that lets us take screenshots ofentire web pages or just a selection.

You can also record the screen and save the video in different formats . Besides this, it includes a simple editor with which you can make notes or draw on the captures before saving them.

uTorrent easy client

uTorrent easy client is simply a torrents download manager integrated directly in Opera . You can add and remove downloads, view the files in queue, change the priority, control the speed, etc. All directly from a pop-up menu in your browser.

Google Keep Sidebar

If you use the Google notes application, this extension will love you. Google Keep Sidebar adds to Opera a sidebar with all your notes so that you only have to press a button and access them from any browser tab.


Gorgias is an extension oriented email. It works with Gmail webmail,, Yahoo, Fastmail, and LinkedIn and Facebook services. What it does is let you create templates with predesigned messages so that you can replenish emails easier.

If, for example, you start many emails with the same sentence, you can program Gorgias so that when you write the first words, automatically complete the rest .

Open in VLC

Open a VLC is exactly that, an extension for Opera that lets you play any video you’re watching on the web directly in VLC . Obviously you have to have VLC installed on your computer to make it work.


Pushbullet is one of my favorite extensions and I take it on absolutely all my devices, because it allows sending files, links, notes, etc. from one browser to another , from the mobile to the computer, or from the gadget to the next in an easy and immediate way.

Besides that it also lets you mirror the notifications of the mobile on the computer screen. You can even answer your SMS from the browser if you install the extension.

Black Menu for Google

Black Menu is the perfect extension for those who use Google services for almost everything in life. It will add a button that displays a menu with shortcuts to Gmail, YouTube, Google Translate, Google Calendar, Google Drive, etc.

User agent switcher

User Agent Switcher is a simple add-on to easily and quickly change the way in which a web is viewed depending on the device for which it has to be displayed. You have the option of viewing the mobile versions according to different devices and systems, at the same time as among the most popular browsers.


Finally, TabHamster is an excellent extension to manage all the tabs we have open in the browser and divide them into different sessions to have on hand at any time, without having to keep them occupying space in the bar and memory.
