Google was and still is a default search engine in Opera web browser for about 7 years. Today Opera Software announced that since March 1, 2008, Google will be set as a default search engine in their mobile products as well, Opera Mini and Opera Mobile.
Before Google and Opera mobile search partnership, default search engine was set to Yahoo! Search and some time ago Google was removed at all.
There were a plenty of rumors that since Opera Software and Yahoo! made some kind of deal (and dropped Google), Google which slogan is “Don’t be Evil” started to “tweak” their projects, so Opera web browser users would have some problems by using them. Although I’m not sure if those rumors are correct.
