Kick Ass Opera Extension Offers Tons of Fun

Opera Software, the Norwegian software developer behind the Opera web browser, has announced that there’s a kick ass extension out there called Kick Ass. What does this extension do? This extension turns any webpage into an Asteroids-style shooting game. An Asteroids-style ship will appear on whatever site you’re on; you can control the ship and blast everything in sight.

You can get the extension straight from Opera here. After you install it, you will have to reload the page you’re on. You really have to do that; if you don’t, the extension button will remain disabled. After you enable the extension, a ship will show up, ship that you can control with the following keys:


Arrow keys – move the ship
Space – shoot
B – display enemies
Escape – quit

The Kick Ass Opera extension is based on the Kick Ass bookmarklet created by Erik Rothoff Andersson (check it out here). If you’re not using Opera, you could get the bookmarklet and start shooting up websites.

Extensions are available in Opera 11 which was launched back in mid-December, and to be more precise, on the 16th of December. On the 17th of December, just one day after the launch of Opera 11, the Norwegian software developer announced that it saw a record number of Opera 11 downloads. In just one day after its launch, Opera 11 was downloaded a total of 6.7 million times.

Extensions are great because they add features and functionality directly into the browser itself, rather than as standalone Opera Widgets or Opera Unite applications. Developers can easily create extensions using supported APIs and open standards like HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript, while users can easily install extensions by clicking an extension and then clicking “Install” in the small window that shows up.

If you would like to get Opera 11, you can download the browser here.
