Opera Mini already adds Speed Dial shortcuts to the first 9 links on the start page, so you can just press *1 to get to your favorite site on your phone. Now we do the same thing for desktop, where Ctrl+1 to Ctrl+9 gives you direct access to your 9 favorites. When you open a new tab, the 9 Speed Dial sites will be displayed with pretty thumbnails, a single mouse click away
Why Speed Dial?
Bookmarks often fall into two categories:
- A bunch of sites you bookmark because you may want to visit them again someday
- 5 or 6 sites you visit very often
Speed Dial is an elegant way to address the second category. When you open a new tab, it will often be to go to one of your favorite sites, so why not just show them there instead of an entirely blank page? Adding your favorites to Speed Dial is also very, very simple: Just click the button and choose a site from your Top 10 history or from the currently open tabs. Deleting them is just as simple, with the X in the upper right corner.
- You can reload all thumbnails by pressing Ctrl+R, giving you a quick overview of whether your favorite pages have changed, or just reload one of them from the right-click menu (nice for Web mail!).
- We’re partnering with Yahoo! on both Mobile and Desktop, which explains the new search field. You can of course configure it from search preferences.
- You can drag links to thumbnails and even rearrange thumbnails by dragging them on top of each other.
- You can hide the entire thing with the “Hide Speed Dial” button in the lower right corner if you don’t like it.
So, what’s on *your* Speed Dial?
- Overrides your search.ini file instead of merging them: Make a backup before installing.
- Thumbnails should not reload on every startup.
- “Reload every…” is missing from the context menu.
- Middle-click doesn’t open pages in the background.
- Back button doesn’t go back to Speed Dial.
- Several skin and display problems.
- Contains some hardcoded not translatable strings.
- The “What is Speed Dial” link doesn’t go anywhere.
- Forgetting to put your partner’s blog in SD1 can have dramatic consequences
