Set password for your browser ( Opera lock )

  • I very much like the idea and I am using it to provide some basic security.
    Some comments on usage:
    The page that was visible on exit will still be visible on restart of opera, just the pop-up asking for password on top of it.
    If you are quick and have a slow computer you can still switch tabs before the pop-up comes up to ask for the password enabling somebody to see the page.
    It seems not possible to change password (I guess uninstalling and re-installing is the answer).

    Feature suggestion:

    • When Opera starts, make it load a new tab (speed dial) in this way another person at least can't see the open tabs.
    • Would be great if the password would be prompted for if X amount of time has passed:
      I often never shut down my PC, just hibernate it along with Opera. So Opera is most of times not locked. A timer would make sure if the PC is long enough in hibernation or unused that Opera is locked again.

    Question: Why do you need access to search results?
