Incremental web page content search with "/" (slash)

  • Hello,

    Please, please, re-enable web-page content search with "/" key. It was there for a long time and disappeared with Opera re-design.
    Missing this feature is real pain-in-the-browser for me.

  • Hi macmacz: Settings (Alt+P) > Shortcuts > tick the checkbox on the left of "Enable advanced keyboard shortcuts" 😉

    BTW: even without enabling the above option, you can search using "Ctrl+F" by default.

  • Hello,
    Oh - great - I have "/" search again 🙂 Thank you.
    I know "Ctrl-F" shourtcut - just got used to "/" search for years.

    Forgive RTFM question - I'm getting back to Opera after some interrupt caused by Opera redesing that cut-off many features. Looks like I should search more before posting...

  • @macmacz: You're welcome, it's always pleasure, when I can help nice people, welcome back 😉

  • I used to use this ALL the time -- but it doesn't work now, because if you enable it you can't type repeated slash, period, or commas into comment boxes -- it snaps you into search mode.
