  • Like 4~5 days ago it worked but I don't know why it doesn't work on these days. Maybe a problem with shortcuts? I tried looking for that shortcut in options but it didn't show up. Either I don't know the name of that shortcut or it mysteriously disappeared. Any help?
    Thanks in advance

  • I currently have ~170 tabs open, which is about average for me. I can honestly say I've used the tab search twice in the past year. I use instant search every day.

    As a developer, I'm always being pushed to focus on a more widely used browser, but the unbroken quick-search experience is unmatched and immensely valuable to my speed of working and browsing.

    I'm gonna downgrade, and reconsider alternatives, too - all my favourite passive features in Opera are available from other browsers, along with a more comprehensive suite of extensions and comparable UX when you take out Instant Search.

    Please reconsider.

  • @avl honestly that's just sad, i mean in my time using opera, i've never used that search in tab, i don't really see the value of it compared to the instant search, this feature was one of the reason i'm using opera, the convenience of running a search while on the same page is second only to My Flow IMHO, so please bring it back, you can take away the useless search in tabs, we know hard decisions are made everyday but this was a bad one.

    //Bring Back Instant Search 
  • @acidinmyfridge I think only thing we can do is opera gx.

  • @barcode i have rolled back to v67 of Opera and have blocked auto-updates.
    Will stay on this now infinitely.
    Instant search is the superior feature that Opera has and no other browser offers.
    @treego i have been using Vivaldi on/off for since the beginning. I like that it is highly customizable and has tab stacking and such, but Opera's instant search is elementary for me.
    @avl please consider bringing instant search feature back. Clearly, the number of users actually using Instant Search was not negligible.

    Without instant search, there is nothing, that makes Opera different, better, superior compared to other browsers. Without it, Opera is just a browser like any other.

  • I think so, I have no idea why they take it out, it's very useful when I need to research something quickly! Wooooo

  • @avl Do you call people who use your program and be hardcore fans of it negligible? That is not nice. I am done with this version i am downgrading and staying at that version

  • anyone can explain where is the search tab in sidebar , i think opera was remove but this make sad because it was very very very helpful

  • As a new user all i have to say is, i loved that feature but i didn't even get enough time to get used to it... I guess i am one of those negative numbers that appear in your statistics

  • are there anyway to bring instant search back? when i click alt+space it show up something else it really use ful for me but maybe not for other

  • @pleumz See the topic.

  • Just got back from a trip to find out my Opera and Opera GX have no more instant search. Downgrading back to v.67 until the instant search function is back. It was the best feature the browser had to offer, imo, together with the conversions. Speaking of it, conversions were a great combination with instant-search.

    Would like to give some more attention to: "fans that use our browser because of its unique features" = negligible. I really don't mind, but that's a dangerous turn, and dangerous words, for a software that has been doing great with niche public so far.

  • @avl
    I read every changelog and I try new features.
    My colleagues dont know Alt+Space and I have showed them it.
    How many users knew Alt+Space... and used it?

  • Instant Search + Video pop-up were the only reasons to use Opera. You removed one of them + you still cannot sync extensions by using an Opera account between several devices in 2020. Seriously ?

  • @goldpepe I know the feature since v58 i guess. The feature is absolute brilliant and i love it ♥ . That's the reason why i stay on v67. If the instant search will not come back and Opera is too much outdated i will switch over to a other browser. 🤷🏻♂

  • I too would like to continue using the instant search feature. How do I revert back to v67 and stop the browser from autoupdating.

  • This post is deleted!
  • @simplimiled You have to modify the "Target" in the shortcut and add --disable-update

    I have pinned Opera to the taskbar and modified them.

  • @avl I read some comments from users complaining about alt+space shotcut but i don't think the instant search was the problem, it was very quick and useful for who knew about that feature.
