Enable Google Instant in Opera

Google Instant is a new search enhancement tool from the technology giant Google, which is designed to speed up your search. It searches the Web as you type (not after you type) and Google claims that, this new feature will greatly reduce the time spent on search.

Ok, whatever will be that, this feature only works in latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, IE8 and Safari (Mac). For Opera users, here is a workaround to enable Google Instant.

Visit www. in Opera browser. Note that, currently Google Instant is available in US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Russia, if you are on other countries click this link in Opera.

Then, right click anywhere on the page and select "Edit Site Preferences". Go to the "Network" tab and choose "Identify as Firefox" from the drop down list on the bottom. Click OK to save. [Via]


  1. Thanks for the workaround to let me use Opera for Google Instant.

    I wonder how long the blogosphere will give Google a pass about using their market power to destroy Opera and fool people into thinking that it's the browser and not them intentionally blocking Opera users from Google's latest features?

  2. Surely google can do better than this.
