Installing widgets in Opera is very easy. To do this, use the Widgets panel or menu and select "Add widget". This will open a web page where you can choose and download widgets that Opera will install automatically.
The most of widgets are very funny but only some of them are actually useful in a real life situation.
This is my list of 10 the most useful Opera widgets that work well for me.
The Scientific Calculator Opera Widget provides the look and feel of a real calculator. It allows you to perform mathematical calculations with advanced scientific functions.
This very useful and nice widget provides you with international weather reports, in detailed, compact and mini modes. With the help of touchtheSky widget you can find out such information as temperature, wind speed, air quality (including humidity, pollen levels, and UV levels), weather forecast for five days and so on.

Of course, this widget will translate only the languages that can be translated by Google's own translation service.
