When I am in Chrome, and I need to do a search by selecting some text in a page, I do Right Click on the selection, say 'some text', and Seach Google for 'some text'.

In Chrome I can change the default search engine from Google to another one (but I don't want, I like Google)...

Opera proposes me multiple search engines to search, but introduces one more step to do: (1)Search With=>(2)Google. enter image description here enter image description here Is there a way to make the default search engine be really default in Opera

(right click, "Search with 'my default search engine' for 'some text'") ?


I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure this is a case of pebkac. :-)

Please have another look at your own screenshot. Directly above where you've selected the "Search with" option is the option called, simply "Search". Select text, right-click on it, and choose that option. It will do exactly what you're complaining Opera doesn't have. Choosing another default search engine will affect what this button does, because that button uses your default search engine. In other words, you don't have to do the 2-step option of selecting the engine if you're happy to use the default; the additional options are there as a convenience. If you have created custom search option, they'll show up there as well.
