Every now and then I try to do something incredibly stupid. Usually I want to save a bit of time, but invariably spend days/weeks/months wondering why. Something stupid like automatically saving certain images in a Web SQL database and extracting them later. Anything other than right-clicking on the image and Save image... (which is broken in Turbo mode), or copying the image from cache, or any other simple solution. I've already built up a nice little database but, as the relevant thumbnail images come from different servers, I was stuck. After all, with Opera extensions, it's a simple matter to over-ride the same-origin policy, and make use of the canvas element, right?
