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" https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl
- 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!
