Why no 2 pane bookmarks add-on?

  • Hi,

    I used Opera a long time, it had all that was needed without add-on, especially the 2 pane bookmarks.

    Then, Opera was destroyed, replaced with a bland and featureless version, and I switched to Firefox.

    Over time, Firefox has become bloated and slow, but it does have a 2 pane bookmarks add-on, and Opera still does not, which makes it unusable when you have to deal with thousands of bookmarks in hundreds of folders.

    So, after all this time, why no 2 pane bookmarks add-on for Opera? They INVENTED it, destroyed it, and never replaced it with anything remotely as useful

  • U have a pic of that 2-pane? I'm having trouble remembering Presto features 😃 Other than Tab Stacking 😃


  • Sorry for the delay responding, I thought I would be notified for each answer.

    Here is what the Firefox addon looks like:

  • He simply means a folder tree on the left (or too) and a list of the current folder on the right (or bottom). If meant as a sidebar, it would have to be top and bottom, of course.

  • Surely the panes are side by side, not one under the other, unless Firefox has changed very drastically.

  • One under the other, look at the screen cap.

  • As he specified extension, sidebar is to be expected. I don't know whether Opera's extensions API specifically includes splitters, though I have no reason to believe you couldn't do it yourself if you're an extension developer.

  • I think I saw this behavior in some of the bookmarks extensions. V7 bookmarks might be a good start...

    Sure indeed opera://bookmarks and other internal pages could be with more functionality.. 🙂

    But extensions are great too as long as there's no crappy code 🙂
