Opera 11 to support Extensions - NoScript?

Postby chrismt » Fri Oct 15, 2010 7:43 am

I have heard that Opera 11 will have extension support and I just wanted to know if there is the possibility of NoScript in Opera

It will be cool :geek:

It's hard to say at this moment, since there's no public API yet...

I'd also like to see NoScript for Opera. I prefer and normally use Opera as I find it much faster and more secure than firefox, NoScript would make it almost perfect.

What about this? http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/intr ... -link-api/ I'm not into programming but this may be what you are looking for.

It's not, but thanks.
When there will be some real meat, it will likely appear here as "Extension SDK" or something like that.

I looked at those this morning.
The API look significantly better than Chrome's, but there's still some hard to work-around obstacle, especially in the inter-process messaging API, which is strictly asynchronous: NoScript's content-side component would need to exchange information synchronously with the background process at least once per page, in order to reliably apply its security policies.

I'll keep an eye on changes.

That's HTML5 Cross-Document messaging for you. Also you just don't want extensions to be synchronous and lock down your browser.

Since it was said by one of Opera Software employees I think they're not planning to change that.

Then they won't have a reliable/usable NoScript any time soon (just like it happens with Chrome, where NotScripts is not as reliable nor usable as NoScript for similar reasons).

there was already a script blocking extension available when 11alpha got released yesterday. Not bad for a beginning, even if just based on white/black list... okay that's basic but better than nothing.

Mmm, I've looked into the source code and it seems Opera actually is in a better shape than Chrome again, thanks to its user scripts API which allows for isolated storage in privileged content-process scripts.
Still very impractical if compared with Firefox's infrastructure, but not as desperate as Chrome.
