There are extensions for search engines;

https://addons.opera.com/en-gb/exten...ls/search-all/

https://addons.opera.com/en-gb/exten...rch-extension/

https://addons.opera.com/en-gb/exten...ant-for-opera/

..... even more than those if you search the Opera add-ons pages. I just choose to do it the way I described but I think the extensions add options to search via the context menu.

About the browser itself, I think this latest version (60.0.3255.83) is an improvement on the previous Stable releases. The speed dial responds much faster and they seem to have ironed out the UI glitches

You sure a good resource person deya!

Do you think there's a 1-2 step to setup a hotkey/keyword for any bookmark?
Vivaldi's way is the easiest i've found so far.
Just click on saved bookmark icon in url box and add keyword.

Opera 60.0.3255.84 Stable update;

https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2019...stable-update/

" .... a quick Opera stable update with a crash fix for Windows. We adressed GPU fix, that caused black screen crash for some users on Opera startup"

Not sure about shortcuts for any bookmark. Go into settings, 'Enable advanced keyboard shortcuts' then 'Configure shortcuts' ... might be a way if you look there.

I don't use them much, but I have configured one for showing/hiding the sidebar and one for showing/hiding the bookmarks bar. The showing and hiding of the sidebar seems to be a thing that gets lots of complaints from users in the Opera blog comments - but there's usually a way if you look. Perhaps Vivaldi's keyboard shortcut settings are more comprehensive than Opera's? Haven't used it in a while so not sure

Was hoping to do as with Slimjet:
-right-click on url, manage search engines, add the keyword and url as you would any search engine and voilą! le tour est fait!
But no, it doesn't do the trick in Opera.

Ah, well, yes and no. You can't do that for all sites but you can do it on sites that have a site search facility.

For example, YouTube; open YouTube, right click in the search box and 'Create search engine'. Then enter the keyword in the browser search bar (yo) and then your search query. YouTube will open, showing a list of whatever you searched for - song, or band etc.

This site, Gizmos, create the search engine then type 't' and then your query.

Is that what you're wanting to do?

Yes - but you can it with any url in Slimjet.

Easiest would be like Vivaldi - if Opera could add that extra keyword box to the "heart", then i'd be happy.

Still, Opera is pretty good at displaying regularly visited bookmarks so hotkey/keyword is not a huge "loss".

True -but still not as fast and intuitive as a hotkey.

- - -

Heard Microsoft's involvement in Chromium is going to benefit all other spin-offs.

Microsoft's input to Chromium probably will benefit all the other spin off Chrome browsers.

But it will benefit Microsoft more.
