The team behind the popular Opera browser have released a new desktop version of the browser. It has got a new feature, called 'Instant Search'. Also, the company revealed a brand new mobile browser, Opera Touch, which is closely integrated with their desktop app thanks to another new feature, Flow.

Instant Search

To open Instant Search, use Alt + Space keys.This shortcut works on any website. Instant Search opens a search box on top of the web site you are currently on and lets you look up something else. The current web site is dimmed while you are searching for something new. When you’re finished, just close Instant Search and you’ll resume with the web site you were on.

The search overlay supports a few content filters, like "image", "news", "video", etc. The result appears in the Instant Search flyout.
