Opera - Enable Google Instant Search

October 2016

For one reason or another, Google has blocked the instant search for Opera users.
However, Opera is perfectly capable of using this feature, here's how:

The aim of this tip is to make Opera identifies itself as Firefox when it displays a page from Google:
  • Open Opera
  • Go to" http://www.google.com/
  • Right click on an empty space of the page> Edit Site preferences
  • In the windows that opens go to the "Network" tab and then at the bottom, choose identify as Firefox.
  • Then confirm with the "OK" button. Normally Google Instant Search will work with Opera now!
