Is there any way to type into the opera search box or address bar and have the result open in a new tab by default (i.e. when I simply hit enter)? (Opera 10.52 beta)

Yes. Just press Shift+Enter instead of Enter and you'll get what you want.

This key combination works for any search box or address bar since earliest Opera releases.

EDIT: Also if you copy the address or search words to clipboard you can press Ctrl+Shift+V instead of standard Ctrl+V and Shift+Enter key combinations. This will paste text and open the result in new tab immediately. Try it.

what i'm trying to do is have it work with just enter (e.g. firefox has an option to interchange the actions of ctrl-enter and enter). i want the default to be open in new tab. – Martin DeMello May 20 '10 at 12:04
You can do that for Search boxes only but not for address bar. Press Ctrl+12, go to upper 'Tabs' item, and uncheck the checkmark saying something like 'Reuse current tab'. – Vasyl Boroviak May 20 '10 at 12:29
thanks, that worked nicely :) – Martin DeMello May 24 '10 at 8:12
