Well, the title is quite unambiguous. However, let me clarify it even more.

Starting with Opera 11, there now are Opera extensions, which are compliant to W3C widget specification. This allows us to use it on whichever browser supports their (well, currently, only Opera does). Anyway, suppose I have two computers, each one using Opera. How could I possibly synchronize used extensions and their preferences ?

  • With Opera Link ? I didn't saw any kind of extension sharing in it
  • With Dropbox/any other file sharing application ? If so, how could I do that ?

You can sync your Opera widgets folder with Dropbox by linking the widgets folder into your Dropbox. For example, in Linux you can link the folders like so:

ln -s /home/user/.opera/widgets /home/user/Dropbox/widgets
