(Hat Tip: Pramod)
For those of you who don't know, Opera is Firefox's older sister who was unable to get a date with Google, although her younger (and more wild sister) Firefox had a little more success "in that arena."
Guilherme Campos it seems has designed a widget for Opera users allowing them to search Orkut forums, friends and everything else in between. You will need to download Opera in order to use this widget (which you can place anywhere on your screen).
After installing you should notice a small "O" (for Orkut) on your screen:
Simply double click on it and a new frame window should pop up in view, making Orkut life easier.
I'm not a heavy Opera user myself (since Firefox came into my life) but it does come up as a nice backup just in case FireFox and IE are both down on your computer.
