You can configure which to use from the settings panel, with options for DuckDuckGo, Bing, Google, and Yahoo!. In addition, the home page can be configured as well, to have a location of maximum interest to access at the press of a button.
Various security settings
While in the settings panel, you can dive deeper in the set of security options, which let you choose multimedia players to use, whether to allow plugins, load images, and other various configuration options. The default location of the cache can be changed, in case you manually want to clear it out from time to time.
Speed is decent, and you land on the requested page in the blink of an eye. Although it may seem a little unstable at first, the associated process gets split in multiple instances, thus creating a balance in resource consumption, for a better distribution.

Furthermore, history isn’t kept track of either, while this doesn’t necessarily affect practicality, since it can be used as a method to effortlessly clear your tracks.

As such,Opaque combines lightweight, quick navigation, with light resource consumption, and security by leaving no traces.
