Sync Search Engines + Speed Dials

  • Hi,

    It does not seem that Opera synchronizes search engines (to be entered in the URL bar) across browsers on desktop PCs, does it?

    According to the help settings should be synchronized among desktop clients. I run Opera 30 for Linux on both devices but the search engines are not synchronized. Is this currently not supported?


  • Sync doesn't sync custom search engines currently afaik.

  • Thanks for your reply. Saldy, kind of what I expected.

  • Where could I find out if this functionality is planned and/or has a release date?
    Opera Link apparantly did support this functionality, so maybe it's a 'when'?

    I'm sitting here with one Opera 31 with around 20 useful custom search engines and another PC with Opera 31 and currently zero custom search engines, and I'm wondering whether I should wait a little longer until this sync functionality is implemented or copy all the search engines manually...

    Or is there another option that i may be missing?



  • Where could I find out if this functionality is planned and/or has a release date?

    There is no way to know. You can check the Desktop Team Blog to see when/if it's added to a developer build.

  • Thank you! 🙂

    The blog was definitely the right place to search and I went through the changelog of Opera beta 32, and while there are a lot of snychronisation improvements, no search engine sync yet. (I also quickly tried the 32 beta myself, just in case they forgot to write something into the changelog^^)

  • That feature was in old opera for ages. And even in opera 32 there's no search sync. It's such a pain to setup searches in all instances of browser. Please, implement it finally

  • Yeah, would be nice have.
