If you are an Opera (the web browser) user, then there are not many places to go for tips and tricks. Apparently the web is filled with Firefox addons and Chrome extensions. This is so because most people are not aware of the massive potential of Opera. Not only is it a lightning fast browser but it has rich library of widgets. Opera widgets are not only for average browsing users but also for web developers.

Take Icon Creator for instance. Icon Creator is an Opera widget that lets users create a simple icon of different colors. After installing the widget, you might need to open up the widgets sidebar and access Icon Creator from there.
