Opera To Reintroduce BookmarksBetter late than never.

Now here is a piece of good news for you, thanks to a very vocal and passionate community that just won’t shut up, Opera has decided to bring back bookmark functionality in the future builds.

Unfortunately, there is no ETA although guys at Opera hinted that it is a priority. Interestingly enough, they also said that “it won’t be a clone of Opera 12” (whatever that means) but as long as it’s a proper bookmarking implementation, we should be fine.

    Thank goodness. It mystified my how Opera could think that the Speed Dial would be a proper “bookmark” feature for a broad audience. Simply stated, you should not release a browser that’s missing basic, standard features available in all other browsers.

      Let’s just hope it’s not like the horrid bookmarks extension.

      I’m mystified that Opera really thought 90% of users never added any bookmarks based on the usage reports. The Opera user base tends to be the type that disables automatic reporting. Maybe the devs were getting reports from a bunch of people that use it as secondary browser. It’s funny that readers of the blog are now turning on usage reports so Opera ASA really knows how people use the browser.

      To be fair to the SD “bookmarks”, they’re not as slow as I feared after the initial loading. But I still like to do CTRL D and put a bookmark in its proper folder instead of creating a dial and then having to drag it to a SD folder afterwards.

      It means “Estimated Time of Arrival”

    Wow! They finally found some sense and added proper bookmarks. I wonder if they could do the same and add M2.
