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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
