why is there no "delete" entry?
They are protected so that malware/viruses can't mess with them.
Yeah, but I do not think malware would do that via the settings interface, clicking on menu items. And my precious manually added entries are not protected
Also, Opera has deals with the default search engines. Not allowing the user to delete them might be part of the deal. Opera has never said that though. It's just a guess.
Yes, that is what I was thinking, too. I can understand this, things like that are not uncommon, but its not convenient for me. This and cookie handling pushed me to switch to vivaldi browser on the desktop. Both things are better in vivaldi, looks like it is more user-friendly.
I hate to switch browsers, but getting open tabs and bookmarks from one to the other was not that much work. Interesting thing: operas former lead developer started vivaldi after internal problems, so I hope there is the good spirit that lasted until opera version 12.
To be fair, I prefer opera on my mobile device for its text wrap function when zooming in, this is very helpful. But that seems to be another story, I read there is a patent on word wrapping on a mobile device. Funny thing.
