Extensions are one of the cool new features in Opera 11. They’re great because they dd 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 the extensions they think will come in handy.

The Web Of Trust (WOT) extension for Opera will definitely come in handy. This extension will help Opera users to steer clear of dodgy, unscrupulous sites. Say you search for something on Google; among the search results may be some dodgy sites that you are best stay clear of. By clicking the WOT icon you will see the trustworthiness, vendor reliability, privacy protection and child safety of that site. A site’s trustworthiness is determined by a global community of more than 17 million WOT users.


By getting the Web Of Trust extension you will be better prepared to stay clear of sites that cheat customers, deliver malware or send spam for example.

“WOT brings transparency to the Web and makes it more difficult for unscrupulous site owners to operate,” said Vesa Perälä, CEO of WOT. “For example, the WOT community is better at detecting scam sites than automated systems alone, because it requires input from real consumers to identify bad customer service. We are pleased to make the WOT extension available as another line of defense for Opera users.”

"Browsing the Web with the Web of Trust extension gives a completely different sense of security," said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera. "Instead of browsing alone, you have millions of people helping point out what sites are trustworthy, are safe for your children, and respect your privacy. No matter how you use the Web, Web of Trust is an essential tool to browse safely in today's sometimes uncertain environment."
