    I looked through the forum and didn't find a clear answer on this.

    Is it possible to change the default browser for the google search widget? I use Opera and Operabridge won't do the trick. Every time the search will result on the regular browser.

    search market for "rames.p"

    app is called "make it default browser"

    and does exactly that makes opera mini 5 your default browser for everything.

    Doesn't work. Links from my emails open with Opera... But the google search widget still opens up the regular browser after each search.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I had this issue as well, it appears opera is not capable for whatever reason of being the default browser. Until the devs figure this out (im assuming after the beta stage) it will work with the search widget. In the meantime if you like chrome check out xscope which does allow being set to default.
