Google Instant Now Works In Opera

According to Opera, Google Instant, a search enhancement in the Google search engine that offers faster searches, smarter predictions, and instant results, now works in Opera as well. No tricks such as masking are required to make it work as was previously the case.

To test it, simply go to Google and begin searching. Opera asks any users who were masking as Firefox to remove the masking so as to attain as much feedback as possible on this new implementation.

        Depends what version you are using I guess. Try to update browser.js manually. Clear cookies an cache.

  9. But the image search interface is still the old one!! so I still need masking…
    . Also facebook is working bad lately for me.

    I am really tired of this things, instead on focusing on speed dial, speed dial extensions, ¿unite? ¿widgets?… they should work on web compatibility
