Enable use of a different search engine (to the default) for the address bar "Search Box"

  • Its great that you can add a "search box" in the address bar but it becomes pointless when you can't make this search bar different from your default search engine. If I want to search for something using my default engine I simply type it in the address bar, meaning the secondary box is pointless.

    If there was a setting to change the search box to a different search engine it would be super useful, I like to use DuckDuckGo as my default and its great for most things. But sometimes you just can't get what you are looking for, the search algorithms just aren't as smart as Google. If the search box allowed me to use Google without changing my default search engine it would be a GREAT feature.

    Of course if anyone in the community knows that this already exists I would love to know! I am new to Opera and am trying it out over using Firefox for ages, it has nice features but it lacking in others.
