[Tutorial] Installing any extension
Here's a small guide to install any extension in Vivaldi while we don't have official support. Some probably already know this, but for those who do not, here it is. [b]Requirement[/b]: A Chromium browser (like Opera or Chrome) Most here probably have Opera installed as well, so the requirement is probably not a problem. [ol][li]The first thing is to install the extensions you want in the other Chromium browser;[/li] [li]Now open the user directory for that Chromium Browser, for Opera in Windows it's /C:/Users/user/AppData/Roaming/Opera Software/Opera (Next/Developer)?/;[/li] [li]Open the Extensions directory;[/li] [li]Each directory inside is an extension, inside each directory you'll see directories with version numbers, inside them is the extension itself uncompressed (check the example image); [attachment=505]extensions.png[/attachment][/li] [li]Open Vivaldi, enter vivaldi://extensions in the address bar, tick Developer Mode in the opened page and click to load the extension uncompressed, now just navigate to the directories you found in previous step.[/li][/ol] Not all extensions will work, but it's already something.

In yandex I can not do it: going to chrome://extension (vivaldi://extension do not exist) devs mde loading C:\Users\JOSE\AppData\Local\Yandex\YandexBrowser Alpha\Application\37.0.2062.12544\Extensions
vivladi says NO to this file: external_extensions.json
Sorry, the address is vivaldi://extensions, I fixed in first post.
You don't add the Extension folder, you must do for each of its subfolders, I included a image to explain step 4.

@An_dz: Thanks the guide. I use this way, too. But it's a bit annoying to search the proper folder via extension name. I used to search in *.json files in the Extension folder with Total Commander Find option. It would be more elegant to get the extensions directly from Chrome site.
But of course, your way works fine.
