On Wednesday, when the world’s dominant search company launched the Google Instant search-as-you-type service, a technically savvy section of Web users were left out: those who prefer the Opera browser.
But they won’t be for long, Google said Thursday. “We hope to support Opera shortly after launch,” the company said in a statement.
They better shorten that “shortly!” I’ve been wondering why I haven’t been able to see Google Instant at all. For months I’ve put up with Google — via YouTube — yelling at me to use a “modern browser.” Now I am — Opera! And they do this to me in the end!
