The Easiest Way to Search

To search, simply highlight the word or phrase that you want to know more about and click. A context menu will open; choose the Search option. This will search for the highlighted text on your browser’s default search engine. To change the default Opera search engine, go to Settings > Browser > Search and select the search engine of your choice.
