You can make Opera@USB to defaultbrowser in the same way as DesktopVersion .. so there is no need do add an Tool - it works allready !

Whats the Problem with Vista ? (I only uses Vista a short Time and there was no Problem with Defaultbrowser Opera)
.. The only thing i can remind is that a USB Stick can't be a path for a default programm ?!?

Among other things any longer so simply a program than standard program is not to be furnished in Vista. With Opera folds that problem-free only if the English or international Setup were used.

Did Opera@USB use or the english or international setup there?
Unfortunatly with Vista, Windows treats email and Internet browsers differently than other programs.
When you click Default Programs and then "Set Program Access and Computer Defaults", any portable application will not show up in the list because those programs didn't register themselves in the registry.
Furthermore, if you go into "Associate a file type or protocol with a specific program", I can change the file extensions to point to any application because there is an option to browse for the executable.
However, for protocols, and particularly for Opera, the HTTP and HTTPS protocols, there is no browse option, I have to pick a program that is registered in Vista as being able to handle such protocols.
The HTTP and HTTPS protocols seem really important because whenever I click on a URL from another application (be it Skype, MSN, Pidgin, Thunderbird, Outlook, FeedDemon, etc...) those applications will launch the Default browser in the operating system.
Basically, how I fixed the issue was by mucking around the registry in HKLM\Software\Clients\
What I did was install the normal version of Opera and look at the Registry keys and then changed them to point to the Portable version.
It seems the normal installer will add the proper keys there so that Vista can recognize the browser.

I think sam to you; why do you want to uninstall OperaRegular?
Genrell use Opera Classicinstaller the doesn't make so much waste at System
(I keep the folder on HDD, treat is as local so not sure if on usb will work)
if someone knows the exact registry keys for this, please share!
Try to figure it out, it's with screen shots and use google translator.
