Okay, Markus said I shouldn’t do this but I installed [email protected] on my USB drive and renamed a few files. I wanted Opera to appear as a menu item in the PortableApps Menu. Here is how I did this.
- First I created a directory under the PortableApps directory called, OperaPortable. You can name it anything you like.
- Next I installed the USB version of Opera into this directory.
- Finally I changed the extensions for operausb.exe and gsr.exe to com and changed the extension for opera.com to exe. You should see the pretty opera icon now.
Next time I started the PortableApps menu I had a pretty little Opera icon next to a title that said "Opera Internet Browser". It could not been sweeter. I went to my web sites and they looked fine. The only way I have been able to crash Opera so far is to go to the acid3 test. 😉
DISCLAIMER: I do not use Opera on a regular basis. Your mileage may vary!!!
