Google+ and Opera: the workaround

Edit 21.7.2011: There is now a more elegant and more correct solution available thanks to XP1 from MyOpera.com as mentioned either in the comments of this post, at MyOpera.com or in my post at my Czech blog (Czech only for now, sorry about that – English version of the post coming ASAP) here.

It seems there’s some demand for the English version of my Czech post about Google+ Opera workaround, so I’ve decided to write this up in English as well. You can also follow this thread at My Opera forums.

It’s been quite hard not to notice the phenomenal success of the Google+ social network in just a few days since its unofficial launch. As usual when dealing with all things Google, Opera users were facing another thing that was hard not to notice – the Google+ top notification bar…is sort of missing the actual notifications in Opera. Which in turn makes it kind of hard to use Google+ in Opera efficiently, since you really have no idea about the number of new comments or any other events you should be notified about. You can of course use another (=worse) browser, you can just use the mail notifications or you can get your notifications on your Android device, if you happen to have one (but although the Android G+ app is really nice, to be using it as a notification device for your desktop browser is not really that convenient). Thankfully, it seems like there’s another option to work around this problem.
