The latest Opera beta allows you to edit the search engines!

You have to edit the "search.ini" text file that is the "opera" directory. It's pretty self evident what you do...

[people.opera.com...]

It's also extremely stable..(windows)

(sorry, not seen the change log yet)

For those experimenting with the new "search.ini" file, here is one for WebmasterWorld:

[Search Engine 4]
Name=WebmasterWorld.com
URL=http://www.searchengineworld.com/sitesearch/index.cgi?Match=1&Realm=Webmaster+World&Terms=%s
Query=
Key=w
Is post=0
Has endseparator=0
Encoding=
Search Type=3

Now you can search with the right click menu or from the address bar with just "w keyword". The above replaces the Amazon search. Just load the "search.ini" file in a text editor to edit.

For those that don't know what the above is about, you highlight a word or passage with Opera, right click and then search via any search engine or service (such as a language translator). The above defines one of the searches.
