2019-12-19: Move “Comment” column to be first, since this forum doesn’t seem to support very wide tables.

Something caused my search suggestion engines to all get wiped out (this could have been me if I did it a few months ago and forgot). Anyway, figured while I’m adding everything back I might as well make a comprehensive list for my future reference and anyone else who might be interested. Now I only wish there were an easy way to import/export items from this list…

Note that in my table of engines below, the default Vivaldi engines are all first. The remaining search engines are organized in alphabetical order. Even though the “url” column is cut off, you can still triple click to select the entire line of the search/suggestion URLs.

Alternate languages/countries for suggestUrl

Both .com and mkt=1 are changed for the Japanese market as shown, but it’s unclear how to adjust these for other markets Amazon
After search?, add hl=languagecode& (see Supported Languages for hl parameter) and/or add gl=countrycode (see Supported Country Codes for gl parameter. See official docs on a different but related search. Google Images

Change www. to countrycode. Wikipedia
Add countrycode. prefix. Thanks to replies from Barruel and Pathduck Yahoo!
You would thinking changing .com to .ru or .ur would work, but all variants seem to return the same Russian search suggestions. Also, Turkey is strangely Yandex
See note for Google Images, also it appears one can change .com to .countrycode if desired YouTube

Many thanks to the Vimium project and Search, which helped me find these massive collections of search engines (far more than fit in my list) and sources for possible search engines:

Search Engine Inclusion Criteria
Search engines belong on this list if they are either:

  • Have any custom suggest URL (whether or not Vivaldi currently supports it), or
  • Are used by me personally

Here are a few urls you might want to add in case you want to have search suggestions (maybe you’ll need to turn this option on in Settings → Search → tick the box you like in “Allow Search Suggestions”

Note: You maybe need to adjust the urls to fit your language

Google Images:
The list is not mine I copied it a while back and added a few urls myself - so no guarantee that all urls still work.

If you have some more suggestion urls I’ll be glad to add them to my list.
