  • Working okay for me. Are you using the main page when searching?


  • The reason I asked if you were using the search function on the home page was because I was caught out the other day. I was searching for something and couldn't understand why nowt came up. I then realised I was browsing a specific thread at the time and there was no way the search function would come up with a result from the word I was searching for. Then tried the home page search box and had no problem.

  • I just tested the search function in both Opera (my default browser) and Chrome on desktop with no problems.

    I also did the same on my phone with no issues. Are you using the search box in the top right?

    You could try clearing your browser cache and report back.

    Ah yes, Opera. I was asking you about Opera in another thread but - to keep it on topic - I found this message by using the on-site search so I think search is all working for me.


    In the other thread I was asking about the built-in VPN. First, I'm using an older Opera because my hardware/software won't automatically upgrade to the new Opera-One and secondly I've only really tried to use that VPN to disguise searches on travel websites to avoid having the prices ratcheted up each time I make a comparison. Is the Opera VPN any use for the things you were suggesting? Is there any difference in performance between the VPN in traditional Opera nd the Opera-One browser?

    Since sunscribing to Surfshark I haven't used Opera VPN for ages, but my recollection is that it's inefficient and very slooooooow!

    Surfshark on the other hand is lightning fast and in my experience, free VPNs are exactly that - no free lunch.
