Hello! I just discovered that it's possible to select DuckDuckGo as default search engine now (at least in developer stream) and wanted to say thank you for that. DuckDuckGo is just such an important part of my internet workflow due to it's !bangs and goodies like urlencode, the color info, and many more. Having to type anything in addition to the actual search phrase was really annoying, even when it was just one letter, and was a major reason for preferring Firefox over Opera for me. No that necessity is gone and so the new Opera got a lot better for me, even though it's still not as perfect as the old Presto-based one was. Again, thank you a lot for adding DuckDuckGo!

+1. This feature also was very useful for cross browser testing.

RE: Option to use native window bordersOpera for Linux
Of course the old Opera didn’t integrate perfectly with E since it didn’t use Elementary/EFL but at least it didn’t use some ugly Ubuntu-like window borders without letting me change this (and this is what I’m talking about). Regarding the custom window borders in XP I’ll have a look this afternoon to see whether it’s comparable to my issue.

RE: Opera on Linux with NPAPI?Future releases
Obviously. At least I don’t see any NPAPI plugins at opera://plugins, just the Flash plugin which is probably the pepper one which I installed manually before.
Option to use native window bordersOpera for Linux
When I just installed Opera 24 on my Linux machine the first thing I noticed was that the window borders were looking like on a typical Ubuntu installation. Since I use Arch Linux with E those look rather strange in my environment and I wish there was an option to change that in some way, maybe like Chromium which has an option to use native borders.
RE: Markdown.Forum feedback
I personally like Markdown very much because it’s syntax is easy to read even in unprocessed state and it’s much less verbose than BBCode. I still try to use it in other forums just to disappointedly notice that they support nothing but BBCode.
