Is there any way to store more than 4kb of persistent data with Opera?

Firefox has Greasemonkey & IE has some plugins/toolbars that will enable lots of persistant data to be stored, but it seems that Opera is severly lacking in this department. :mad:

Opera has what they call User Javascript (http://www.opera.com/support/tutorials/userjs/) which is an equivalent of Greasemonkey scripts.

Opera is definitely not lacking when it comes to userscripts as it handles them without needing a plugin while IE and Firefox both need plugins to add that functionality.

It is actually IE that is the most restrictive when it comes to cookies as IE only allows 4k spread across the 20 cookies allowed per domain while other browsers allow 4k per cookie meaning that they allow 80k total across the 20 cookies.

Hey thanks for the replies guys.

I know Opera has the UserJS scripts (that's actually what I'm trying to write at the moment :D ), I just meant that it doesn't come with any greasemonkey-like storage capabilities.

Opera also has a 4kb cookie size limit. It allows either 1 cookie of a 4Kb size or 30 cookies of 0.13Kb size, but it doesn't allow 30 cookies of 4Kb size. :(
