You may need to enable "Show advanced settings"
have you found it? and if so, which section should i be looking under after enabling advanced setting:
basic / browser / websites / privacy & security
i would love to know as well. if Vivaldi can do it so can Opera
"You can set another search engine as your default."
this is excellent work
any possible to use it as default search engine?
Nope, afaik you can only use one of the pre-defined search engines as default one.
any reason [other than money] why we can't change it?
Looks like your connection to Opera forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
