How do I add Bing to the search bar?

  • I would like to use Bing instead of Google in the search bar. Is this possible?

    The only way I will use Opera is if I can. Use to use it for the desktop, years ago, when you had to pay. It was always so far ahead of the others. There are some very nice things I like about Opera, bit I can't switch back, if I cannot use Bing.

    "There is no way you can change default search engine BUT it is possible to add other search engines. First off you have to change data saving to 'extreme' then go to any search engine site you'd want to add, let's say bing.com then press and hold the empty search box a window pops out and click on 'add search engine'. That's it. Switch back the data saving options and there will be a new option in the search box."
