Opera Portable for Mac USB Installation Guide

The latest development snapshot of Opera “11.01-1179,” has added support for portable installation into a Mac OS X environment. Means you can now install and run Opera for Mac from a USB stick or an encrypted disk image and carry bookmarks and settings, mail, and everything else with you.

You can install Opera to /Applications like you have always done, or you can put it on a external USB stick or an encrypted disk image and have your preferences go with you.

Here’s how to get Opera for Mac on your USB stick:

  • First, download and mount the disk image
  • Drag Opera from the disk image to an USB stick or external drive
  • Now open Terminal.app and drag Opera on top of the Terminal window
  • Finally, press backspace once then type /Contents/MacOS/Opera -createsingleprofile

    You only have to run this once and it will create a hidden folder /Volumes/volume-name/.operaprofile/ that will contain all your bookmarks, settings, mail, and the disk cache.
