Do you want to add a bit of fun to your daily browsing? Then get ready to alleviate the stress and boredom by turning webpages into Asteroids-styled shooting galleries with this awesome extension for Opera.

As soon as have the extension installed, click on the toolbar button to make your fighter craft appear. Time to blast those webpages to pieces!

These are the controls for the game:

  • Arrow keys – Control the ship
  • Spacebar – Shoot
  • Hold B – Display remaining enemies (elements)
  • Esc – Quit

*Refreshing a webpage will return it to normal or get you ready for another round of fun.

This is how things look when your press the B Button…any remaining enemies (webpage elements) will be outlined with red dotted-line squares.

Keep in mind that there will be some websites where the extension will not work. You will also need to refresh any webpages that you had open prior to installing the extension. Have fun!
