Changing Search Engines and Desktop Mode

  • I like the look & feel of the the browser, but there are two things keeping me from switching to it:

    1. I can't change the default search engine. I don't like using Google Search, and want the option to use something else.
    2. There are certain websites that I prefer opening in desktop mode because they either don't look right in mobile mode, or because ad-block doesn't work properly on them (e.g. YouTube).

    Is Opera planning on adding these features, or am I better off sticking to the "full" Opera Android?

  • for 2), the browser is supposed to be used with one hand, I can't see using a webpage on desktop mode practical with one-hand

  • @painedforever
    1.Settings
    2.browser
    3.Search
    4.Manage Search Eengines
    That should enable you to change the primary browser.

  • @briton There is no such settings in Touch.

  • @leocg I just saw that,my apologies
