Alternative Search Engines

  • The only choice for a search in Coast seems to be Google, unless I'm missing something. There need to be some good alternatives that people can choose -- maybe DuckDuckGo, Bing, Yahoo, in addition to Google. If Coast wants to compete in browser share with others, it needs to offer more in terms of search engine choices.

  • Save Google.XXX as a speed dial entry, job done.

  • I'm sorry but I can't follow the comment.

    There's a search bar in Coast above the tabs. (It says "Search or Enter Address.") That search bar only operates with Google. I would like to have an option in settings for Coast, to select a different search engine to operate from that search bar. It's the most convenient place in Coast -- the easiest to access -- for a search to take place.

    If you mean, set up a different search engine in one of the Coast tabs, of course, one can, but it's less convenient, particularly if you have a lot of tabs. You may be on a part of Coast, far away from the search engine you set up elsewhere in the tabs. The best place to do a search is in the search bar. It would definitely be, in my opinion, an enhancement of Coast (make the browser more attractive for a larger market of users) for Opera to provide search engine alternatives from that search bar.

  • yeah another +1 here.

    i'd still like to use google but google.co.uk not .com so that i get the option to filter the results down to just pages from the uk. this is an option i use daily.

    i've saved a google.co.uk tab which works provding i don't already have a google.com window open. if i do have a google.com window open, the google.co.uk tab just opens that window which doesn't have the option to filter the results.

  • It can't access google in China, so the search bar is no use for me. If the search engine can change to bing, it's will be good for Chinese users in China main land.
