Like Firefox, the Opera web browser has a search module that allows you to use different search engines without going to their dedicated portal. Among the more common of these is Amazon, Google and Yahoo! You will have surely realized that some search engines are very pertinent, like Wikipedia. This is without forgetting those that like shopping may often use the E-Prix converter on GNT. Here is how you can add this feature.
Firstly go to the search engine page that you want to add. We will use that on GNT for our example. Right click on the search field and in the drop down menu that displays, go to the bottom and select “Perform a search”. A dialogue window will then appear. It will ask you to name the search engine and associate a keyword to it, which we will explain the need for in a few lines. After having filled in this information, press the OK button.
Now a new search engine will be displayed, that from GNT. You simply need to input the keywords that you want to search on and then select this engine to search our site.
But this isn’t all. The keyword entered earlier offers a second search possibility. In the address bar you need to enter this keyword followed by the search words you want to look at. For example “gnt opera”.
Each engine present in the search module has a keyword that can be called on. To knw what it is, you just need to go to the preferences which can be accessed by pressing [CTRL + F12] and click on the “Search” tab. You should note that it is also possible to delete search engines that you no longer use.
