"Sweet tool" to migrate Opera Link bookmarks - where?

  • Hello - where is this "sweet tool" to migrate Opera Link bookmarks, which Opera announced before they closed Opera link? (se below, last sentence)

    http://www.opera.com/link
    Opera Link

    Opera Link will close in December 2015. At that time, you will no longer be able to synchronize your browsing data using the Opera Link service. Also, you will no longer be able to access your data through the Opera Link web interface.

    But, don't worry. Our new generation of Opera browsers allows you to sync bookmarks, Speed Dials, open tabs, browsing history, settings, passwords and more through our new synchronization service baked right into the browser. We even built a sweet tool for you to migrate your Opera Link bookmarks.

  • Link has been closed in december 14th.

  • But Opera announced this "sweet tool" for modern Opera browsers, and obviously for the time after Opera link has been closed. The announcement is still visible here:

  • A cached page is meaningless, unfortunately.

  • Well, that timing is disappointing! Where was the news of this tool? Is there any way to recover my Opera Link bookmarks?

  • But Opera announced this "sweet tool" for modern Opera browsers

    Yep, about three months ago, before the closure of Link.

    nd obviously for the time after Opera link has been closed

    Nope, it was clearly a tool to migrate from Link to Sync before the first one was closed.

  • I had a lot of bookmarks synchronized in opera link ... now they may not recover ... I delete the opera, and I use chrome. thanks for all

  • Here is what Opera wrote about old browsers:

    "...If you can not upgrade to the new browser or do not wish to, your local data will remain on your machine but will not update on the Opera Link server. We recommend that you migrate your bookmarks, so you can still access them through our new service's web interface. You can find the migration tool at sync.opera.com/web/."

    So bookmarks which are on an old browser, should be available using the new service's web interface - if I understand them right. But my Opera Mini (java on my old phone) does not allow to synchronize this way - or at least, I don't see how, even though I'm logged into my account.

    If they were that important for you then you should still have them in your devices and also have made a backup, right?

  • if I understand them right.

    It seems that you did not.

    But my Opera Mini (java on my old phone) does not allow to synchronize this way

    Yep, since Link has been closed, all Opera Presto browsers lost the sync feature. You will have to upgrade to a new phone to be able to get a new version of Opera Mini.

    As already explained, the tool was to allow user to migrate their bookmarks before the closure of Link. Now that Link has been closed, there is no more data to migrate and/or to access.

  • If you used old Opera (not Opera Classic) on Android and install Opera for Android then it should pick up your old bookmarks automatically. Likewise Opera 12 on a desktop system and a current version of Opera. I don't now anything about Mini, sorry.
