April 2017. Hello. I'm not putting effort into this anymore. This was an extension for Opera Presto. I doubt the current code is working now for Opera Blink.

QuoteLink - Opera extension

The QuoteLink Opera extension creates links for the quotes in html file. Quotes are described by blockquote and q elements. When these elements carry, a cite attribute containing the URI of the source of the quoted text, the QuoteLink extension display it with a ⓘ.
