@viewer2012 The whole point is that I don't want to have to do that. I could just as easily just click the last tab with the mouse, but this feature is available in pretty much every other browser. In fact the tab menu itself should be disable-able, but is not.
@alpha11411 said in Make the instant search bar appear globally when Opera is running.:
It looks and behaves like the mac's spotlight or Alfred, and it would be massively useful to have a floating web browser for various search related needs.
This alone would push me personally from using opera/safari about 50/50 to using opera almost 100% of the time
would love to be able to acess the floating instant search everywhere and not be limited to only opera tabs/window.
From my point of view this would be a very useful function.
For example, I'm always annoyed about programs that open unsolicited web pages after installation/uninstallation to thank you for the installation, or to ask for reasons for uninstalling the program, and so on.
Seconding this. In particular, because the dark theme, although much improved in (59.0.3228.0) is still not a true black theme, and opening this up to users to customize allows end users to apply the theme they want. Users are much more likely to use a browser over a competitor if they enjoy its look and feel.
@mopw69 maybe such "miracles" happen through a virtual machine. But you do not have to combine it. Just install the developer version on a pendrive or HDD/SSD as portable. Only, of course, indicate a different location than installing your stable Opera.
