Search engines in Opera 9 Technology Preview 2

One feature that has also been added is the possibility to create a search on any website if that website has a search field. Creating a search will automatically generate the query string. If this form has multiple options, it will include whatever has been typed into the form in the search.
In this particular example, I had selected "Tom's hardware" in the dropdown box, so when I select to create a search, a edit window comes up prefilled with all values necessary to use the search.
When you want to do a search with this recently added search engine, you just type into the addressbar using the shortcut you assigned to it.
The newly added search will also be available in the search field that is next to the address bar.
A search editor has been added to the preferences that allows you to edit existing search engines.
We hope this will make it much easier to use the search engines in Opera and make this powerful feature more accessible.
