If you are talking about skipping the loading of a search engine page before searching, you can already do that with custom search engines in settings.

This is even more useful than the Chrome way, as in Chrome you would need to type
your search query, while in Vivaldi, you could do
y(or whatever nickname you set) +
your search query.
Check out this forum thread to see some search engines people have made: Vivaldi search engines collection

Bing has a shortcut of
So with what you currently have input as the nickname, you would have to type the actual letters and symbols (not the tab key but "t" + "a" + "b") in
"y+tab+search"followed by typing a space and then your search query.
Just set it to something simple and easy to remember like "y".
Here is how it works:
oh ok thx
