= Ubiquity for Opera, the Extension = An attempt to rewrite Firefox's Ubiquity extension for Opera using Extensions. == Help == http://people.opera.com/cosimo/ubiquity/help.html == How to use == The first time you install the extension, it should open a help window, if your popup blocker doesn't block it... Then, open a new tab, say "http://www.opera.com", and press "CTRL + SHIFT + U", and start typing a command. The default shortcut sucks. The problem is that CTRL + space, the default Ubiquity shortcut, in Opera is already assigned to the homepage. I couldn't find a way to override that in the extension, and I didn't want people to *have* to fiddle with it to use the extension, so... CTRL + SHIFT + U it is. == Commands == There's many. You can see them as you type. To search for Videos on YouTube, for example, type "youtube <search-term>", as in "youtube dramatic chipmunk". Press ENTER, and you will see the results. == Problems == The Ubiquity popup window doesn't open on some sites. This was acknowledged as a bug in Opera, but I'm not sure. == Improvements == This thing can be improved a lot of course, but I didn't have time... * Implement a preferences popup/window, so one can choose the shortcut, theme, or other settings. * Place the Ubiquity popup window under the location bar, if it's even possible * Make sure that Ubiquity extension can access preferences, searches, and so on. That would be massively useful. -- Cosimo, 18/Oct/2010
