Do you enjoy watching snow fall through the air? Whether you enjoy the snow where you live or just want to bring a touch of snow to your warm climate, the Snowfall extension will add a gentle touch of fun to your browsing experience.

Once the extension is installed, you are ready to make it snow. Just click on the new toolbar button and within moments you can enoy watching those snowflakes as they lazily float down. Keep in mind that any webpages open before installing the extension will need to be refreshed. To stop the snowfall simply refresh the webpage.

Note: You will occasionally encounter a webpage where snowflakes do not appear (How-To Geek is one that the extension did not work on during our tests).

    I love opera. Previously I was a firefox user for about 2 years, but when i see opera, i make it my default browser.

    This is an example of the useless and unnecessary contra-functionality types of extensions that are sure to continue to be made by (and I use the term loosely) developers and make me question Opera’s bending to the will of, and attempting to lure the Firefox crowd. To make such a drastic change in what has been, since it’s inception, the best browser on the market, to me is a mistake. If this is a harbinger of things to come I think that the Opera team will look back on this as their “Why the !@#$ did we do that?” moment. As a very long term fan and user I just shake my head when I see what is beginning to happen and wonder where can I go next after the extensions hit the fan?
