Chrome Extension 2.0 for Opera
Once installed you’ll be able to add Google Chrome extensions to Opera 15 or later.

One of the beneficial side-effects of Opera switching to the Blink rendering engine used by rival browser Google Chrome is that it’s actually now compatible with Chrome extensions. Extensions are small programs – typically written in HTML, CSS or JavaScript – that provide additional functionality. Opera already has its own Extensions store, but it’s not as popular as Chrome’s, which means you've less chance of finding the extension you need to add much-needed features to Opera.

What this extension does - as its name implies - is allow any version of Opera based on the Blink rendering engine (that means Opera 15.0 or later) to make use of Chrome extensions.

As things that do what they say on the tin go, its title pretty much covers its capabilities. Once installed – no restart required – you’ll be able to browse the Extensions portion of the Chrome web store and install those extensions in Opera using the Add to Opera button that appears. And because Opera uses the Blink rendering engine, things should go smoothly.

It’s worth noting that the extension – as it clearly states – does not work with Chrome web apps or themes. Neither will it work with older versions of Opera based on the browser’s original Presto web rendering engine.

Verdict:

If you can’t find the additional functionality you need within Opera’s own add-ons store, this extension could prove invaluable.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
