I am using it in Opera. And it works great. I am using it to override Opera's silly override of custom speed dial in a new tab. This is to use FVD Speed Dial. Just one suggestion. When new tab is loaded, would that be possible to highlight in browser address bar and extension URL/page address selected in Custom URL in options? Reason: it would allow user to start typing a search phrase immediately after selecting a new tab. Current Focus on Address Bar just adds caret at the end of URL

I like the simplicity of this extension. But since one of the recent updates whenever I open a new tab/page the focus is in the Google search field and not in the URL address bar as previously. That's the only reason for 4 out of 5 stars. UPDATED to 5 stars after the developer's helpful comments!

Works perfectly for Opera GX, changing speed dial to Momentum, or Tabs for a Cause.
