    What were you not able to replicate in Opera? I have installed the bookmarklet for some days but not found anything yet which I could not reproduce.(I didn’t try hard.)

  • @Saurabh

    Opera custom search only takes one meaningful parameter (search query %s) natively.

    Quix can use other parameters, like current URL, domain and text, selected on page.

    After some thinking and searching this seems actually possible in Opera, but will require some inline JavaScript in search engine definition.

    btw I asked Joost to provide URL-like interface, so when he writes up docs it will be possible to [partly?] use Quix like custom engine in Opera instead of popup.

  • Saurabh

    Yeah, nice suggestion. (You meant Quix and not Joost I assume)If you made some nice extensions to Quix please share, I didn’t have the patience nor ability nor ideas to do so myself.

  • Saurabh

    Oh Joost was the name of the person? Sorry. My mistake.

  • @Saurabh

    Yep, Joost is developer. :)

    I will certainly make a post if I end up doing something interesting with it.

    Rarst I discovered this magnificient webapp: http://yubnub.org/ from the comments at Lifehacker. Check it for yourself.

    Seems to have a very steep learning curve. And, like Saurabh
    (above), I’m having difficulty figuring out things it can do
    -or do better/faster- than using Opera’s native features.

    We are just spoiled by Opera. :) Quix might not be something I will use consistently, but it is sure innovative in form+function and there are some features to pillage there. Yes, I am still envious about using currently opened URL and such.
