Opera Super Search
May 22nd, 2005
Opera is well known for its powerfull and flexible little search box. It comes with several predefined search engines, but allows you to add any other engines you want. For example, I have Yahoo!, Google, LinkaGoGo, Technorati, Dictionary.com, Wikipedia and WebMasterWorld searches defined for easy access. Even better, Opera has a feature known as Super Search. When invoked, it will perform the search on the first two defined search engines and display the results in two windows arranged side by side. Much like Yagoohoo!gle (aka Twingine.com and Jaguhugel.com) does. However, with Opera you can compare any two engines side by side, for example Yahoo and MSN, Google and AllTheWeb, etc.
So, how do you activate the super search? The safest way is to download the Opera Search.ini Editor, place your two primary search engines at positions 1 and 2 (for example, Yahoo! and Google), then add a new search named “Super, int” which you will find in the list of search engines in the Search.ini Editor. Save your changes, type in something in the Opera search box, select the Super search and enjoy!
