Right now, Lycos is generating zero search results when used with Opera in any mode - it's cloak agent fed. At over 2 million users, can you imagine the amount of money Lycos has and continues to lose (it's been this way for awhile)? That's a major blunder.

Sorry Brett,

But I cannot duplicate this. (or there is something, I did not understand) I search Lycos with Opera, identified as Opera and everything seems normal.

Working for me too Brett

Either its the quickest fix on record, or some other factor is involved.

It's all fixed up and back now. Nice work Lycos tech support!
