STILL cannot change the default search engine from Google

  • Hello everyone,

    As it has been pointed out multiple times in the past, we'd like to change the dreaded cop search engine Google to whatever we want. Maybe I'd like to use Yahoo, Bing, DDG, Yandex or whatever. Why MUST I, as an Opera user, be forced into using Google?

    When are you going to let users freely pick their search engine?

  • You can change the default search engine to any of the pre-installed onds.

    If you mean the start page search bar, then it can't be changed and most probably things will remain this way in the near future.
