During Safari 4 browsing experience on Windows, I couldn’t understand why Safari won’t restore my last opened web pages during the launch nor do find a way to do that. Fortunately, I have found a solution to do that and it’s really simple.
If menu bar is hidden, hit Alt to enable it, then click:
History > Reopen All Windows from Last Session
After we have removed search box from the speed dial page, it’s time for the final clean up and hide/delete (call it how you want) “What is Speed Dial” and “Configure Speed Dial” buttons.
In the address bar type:
opera:config#Speed Dial State
Replace existing number with “2” (without quotes).
Hit “Save”, restart Opera.
Enjoy clean page.
While speed dial can be helpful to access your frequent visited web pages, a Firefox extension called “New Tab King” has another vision.
Instead of a blank page or speed dial, it will show you your most visited web sites as well as recent closed tabs, bookmarks and frequently accessed shortcuts.
Download New Tab King
It’s actually easier than you thought.
Tools > Preferences > Search
Select search engine which is used in your speed dial (Ask.com, if default)
Edit > Details > uncheck “Use as Speed Dial search engine”
