comment How can I block social share buttons in webpages
I prefer the Fanboy Annoyances block list to the Antisocial list, as it blocks more than just social media content (also in-page popups, newsletters, unnecessary links, self promos and other content that clutters sites unnecessarily). See a comparison between the two here (link).

What I like about Ghostery is that it has an extension for Opera too. (AdBlock Plus currently only has versions for Firefox and Chrome.)

@gojira You can easily disable that feature in ABP. Just uncheck the "Allow non-intrusive advertising" checkbox.

No problem at all. Thanks for the answer. I'm sure it'll help someone with a similar issue.

comment How do I set the computer to auto shutdown or standby / sleep after all downloads finish?
Just would like to add here that Shutdown Timer's network management functionality (monitoring of download speed) is not free. You have to buy the 'Premium' version which has that functionality.

comment How do I set it so that my computer won't go into auto-standby/sleep mode while Opera is downloading?
I was just commenting for the record that 'Turn on Applications to Prevent Sleep Transitions' does not work in my case. It matters because Opera is my main browser, and I'd rather not (and probably won't remember to) use another browser every time I download a file. I also use browser extensions that are specific to Opera, and can only download within Opera.

It doesn't work at all - i.e. Opera does not prevent an auto-standby when it is enabled. This is based on my experience with having that setting enabled with Opera for days. Playing muted music, is a possible workaround, but it still requires me to manually turn the media player off when Opera has finished downloading, making it not very useful to me as I am looking for an automated solution (i.e. automatically allow standby when downloads are finished with Opera). This feature is especially useful for huge file downloads that might require my computer running overnight.

Enabling "Turn on Applications to Prevent Sleep Transitions (Plugged In)" seem to not work at all with Opera. Either Opera still goes into standby while downloading, or the computer it still left powered on and running long after Opera finishes downloading.

comment How do I set Windows Explorer in Windows 7 to display metadata / tags of Ogg Vorbis (.OGG) files when in 'Details' view?
@jonsca I put that edit to AdamKessel's answer to help others, like rjnagle, who are looking for a freeware solution. That edit is mainly to provide info and links to show that there is a freeware version, hence the comparison info. Is it possible to "un-reject" that edit suggestion of mine?
