Chrome to Opera GX

  • With these questions, I've done a good amount of digging myself and have been all though the settings.

    So I just found GX and am moving over from chrome. I love it. I only need to have 2 things that I need to have changed. I use the extension "dark reader" to change web pages to dark mode. I have got the google to opera extension converter and it works great, except for the google search results page. (It works fine in Chrome but not GX)

    Does anyone know how to get this extension to work for the google page? Or know of a separate extension that would darken google? The most common dark mode Opera extensions don't work as well as dark reader.

    A similar question of how to do this (dark mode) in the youtube and messenger sidebars.

    I often use the trackpad and like using the 2 fingers forward/back gesture. (ie 2 finger to the left is back and 2 to the right is forward). Can I program the gestures to do this? Thus far I haven't seen this as an option.

    Thanks

  • @azorian Check if the option to give the extensions access to serach engines are enabled.

  • @leocg Is that easy to find?

  • @azorian Yes, just open the extensions manager page in Opera.

  • @leocg It worked! you are a god among men. I'm going to swap over. I can work with the other issues for now. (any thought?)
