Time for some tips and tricks. Percy Cabello wrote a great article on how you can tweak your location bar. For example: make autocomplete menu show only typed addresses and not visited or bookmarked, how to change the number of suggestions displayed in the autocomplete menu and more.
If you want to play with Firefox 3 location bar a bit, this can help you a lot.
Here’s a great tip from Tamil. If you want to increase speed dials number and add more of them, follow those steps:
1. Locate Speed Dial file by typing: opera:config#Speed Dial File
2. Close Opera
3. Open speeddial.ini which is in Opera directory.
4. Play with rows and columns settings; add as many as you like. Continue Reading
I would like to give a small tip to Opera team. Please, add a feature to turn off developer tools by using “X” button in the right corner. I actually haven’t figured out yet how turn it off. Though remember that somehow I managed to do that in old builds.

This one is really interesting find. Deb Richardson always wondered why photos (colors to be exact) do look different in Photoshop and Firefox 2. As it turns out, this is due color profile support which Firefox 2 doesn’t support. The good news is that Firefox 3 supports color profiles, although it’s disabled by default. To see what it is all about, check the picture below: Continue Reading
Thought I will start something like that long time ago. If you have any trouble using your web browser, feel free to contact me using contact form. I probably will be able to help you. Here are some questions which I received long time ago, answered but never published. Glad that I don’t delete “sent emails” very often :-) Some were really easy to answer, for the few others had to make a little research (had to rewrite few questions before publishing as well).

A few weeks ago Netscape announced that they won’t be developing any new Netscape Navigator releases in the near future. As this web browser is really similar to Firefox, most of the current Netscape Navigator users will probably move to Firefox.
If you are using Navigator and would like to know more about migrating from it to Firefox, there’s a nice tutorial called “Migrating from Netscape to Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird” in their blog. Hope you will find it useful. Continue Reading
The first one I’ve accidentally found by cleaning up my mouse buttons while Opera web browser was launched.
Hold right mouse click and scroll the mouse wheel. You should see all the tabs listed now.
And the second one was randomly found some time ago, very useful feature. Mark some text and click right mouse button. Menu should appear with some options. I use “Translate” function from time to time. That’s a great feature as I don’t have to open any “Translate” tools, Opera does that for me.

When I say “Crashing” I mean that it just closes without any errors or notifications. Do you experience this very often and blame Opera for some kind of “bug” which causes it to crash all the time?
In fact, one of the reasons why Opera just closing could be lack of the free HDD space. If you have only like 50 MB of free space or even less you’ve just found a reason for that.
Solution? It’s time to clean your hard drive.

Daniel Goldman wrote a nice tip using PCMech.com video for the Opera users. You can control your web browser using Opera Voice. Basically I haven’t ever tried this feature but after seeing short video decided to do that. If you want to try it yourself, go the Opera Tools > Preferences > Advanced > Voice and check “Enable voice-controlled browsing”. It should download additional 10-11 megabytes now and you can start using it. Don’t forget to check Opera’s Voice video.
I’ve used it for a few minutes only but it’s still fun I guess. However, first thought that I will be able to type any URL using my voice but I couldn’t. Also haven’t found “Read Feeds” option. I guess this feature needs a small upgrade. Maybe not. Still checking tutorials for more details.
