Extensions have finally come to Opera in version 11.

Lynx:
Lynx is a text-based web browser for use on cursor-addressable character cell terminals and is very configurable.Because of its
 text-to-speech–friendly interface, Lynx was once popular with visually impaired users, but better screen readers have reduced the appeal of this application. Lynx is also used to check for usability of websites in older browsers. It is still included in a number of Unix products and Linux distributions.
Because Lynx does not support graphics, web bugs that track user information are not fetched; therefore, web pages can be read without the privacy concerns of graphic web browsers.
Lynx was originally designed for Unix and is a popular console browser on Linux. Recent versions run on all Microsoft Windows releases, and Mac OS X.
