How to reproduce

  1. Go to "opera://extensions"
  2. Load unpacked extension
  3. Observe error messages underneath extension listing

Observed behaviour

The following error message is shown: Unchecked runtime.lastError while running storage.get: "managed" is not available in this instance of Chrome

Expected behaviour

No error message is shown


This error was introduced in #1488 which made use of the API. It checks for its availability using if (require("info").platform == "chromium" && "managed" in
In Opera both conditions evaluate to true but when you try to call it tells you that it's not implemented by throwing the above mentioned error. This causes subsequent code not to be executed.

Classic Opera. :D This isn't the first time they do this shit. Seriously, why isn't chrome.storaged.managed undefined if they don't support it? Then everything would work the same way as on older Chrome versions that didn't implement that API yet.
