Suggests installing as many extensions as possible.
If you’re one of the people who’ve delayed their upgrade plans from Opera 12 because of the missing bookmark functionality, then you are up for a disappointment.
According to the latest blog post (and comments by Odin Hørthe Omdal), you shouldn’t expect native bookmark functionality in the near feature as Opera’s first priority is the quick access bar. Instead, they suggest relying on the third party extensions, which doesn’t sound like a good idea.
Odin said, “One thing that is absolutely sure is that it is now possible to build an extension to do it, and that will be quicker than waiting. Any native bookmark functionality will use the same backend as the extension, so it can be a seamless transition. But the priority is on the quick access bar, which is not possible to do with extension right now.”
So here you have it, guys. It looks like Opera’s management is as ignorant as it has ever been. Hopefully, bookmarks will arrive faster than a support for extensions did, which the community has been asking about for a number of years.
