This impressive script takes the word "search" to a whole new level. It has some impressive capabilities and features:

  • Integrates with Google search, and highlights search results on pages that you open from the Google results.
  • Allows you to search for multiple words on any page, and highlights all search results.
  • Lists all search matches in a convenient notification.
  • Remembers search terms (using cookies) for each site.
  • Understands "quoted searches".
  • Works with framed pages.

The script also offers the following options:

  • Choose if the script should integrate with Google search results.
  • Say if the script should show a results notification.
  • Choose if the script should store search terms in cookies.
  • Show an alert on pages with frames, showing the combined search totals.
  • Say if it sould always prompt for search terms when using the search field button (see * below).

See the Opera Wiki page for more details.


After installing the script, the Google integration is automatic. After searching on google, click a link to open a page, and the results will be automatically highlighted.

As well as highlighting the results on the page, a small notification will be displayed in the top right corner of the window, listing all the matches. The notification has a few features of its own:

  • Click the + to find for some other search terms.
  • Click the _ to hide the notification.
  • Click the X to hide the notification and remove the highlighting of search results.
  • Click the individual result terms to scroll to each match in turn.
