    @mmichel It's kinda automatic, the most visited pages should be on start page. Don't know if there is a way to manually do it.

    That's my point. It is not a site I visited often, but recently (and probably only once). And I think currently Flow only considers links from current Opera, not all the ones which are connected.

  • @mmichel Bottom line, I'll bet dollars to donuts that with the criticisms about "no bookmarks" - either they will include bookmarks in the next Touch updates or at some point discontinue Touch, and incorporate Touch features in the Opera for Android up the road. IMO, Touch is not something many will opt for, in addition to Opera for Android.

  • I know I sent them a list of 5 issues I had with it. My main issue was Top sites - it doesn't do top pages, only sites. If there is only one page I visit on a given site (my example was my local weather page) it still only gives me the "landing page" (the page you get if you type only the site address and nothing after the ".com" or whatever). Number 2 was that some features are intended for Portrait orientation - I use a tablet so Landscape is more natural. But then again I suppose tablets are not their target audience.

  • Guys, there is a better mobile browser called Opera for Android 🙂 This one is for casuals, very simplistic.

    I think a casual would also be fine with Opera for Android ... and I also think that there seems no need for a browser without bookmarks. Just my two cents. I cannot accept excuses for such a UX disaster. 😉

  • You can go to top-right corner (three vertical dot) > Share > Add to Bookmarks (or other). It will put bookmarks on Home screen in Opera touch, not your device screen. But it will be main page of the site. If you choose Add to Firefox you will get choice "Bookmark" and "Open in Firefox". First choice giv you full URL to specific page right in your Firefox bookmarks. There is other Share options, one of them is ES Note Editor, again full URL, nice but if you try to put two or more URL - sorry, there be two ES Note Editor windows with same name but diferrent content, and Save and Save as will be grayed.

  • Right after installing Opera on my PC, importing all configs from Chrome, creating Opera account to hold my data, installing Opera Touch, and then to finally discover it has no Bookmarks?? No BOOKMARKS?? Really? From all the inventive features you guys ignored the simplest?? And the explanation is hilarious! Most visited sites and Saved urls are totally different things! Going back to Chrome.

  • I don't think many people get the idea of opera touch, it is not necessarily meant to be your main browser (the main opera for android works for that with your bookmarks etc) It's meant to be a quick continuation between desktop and mobile. (Hence the name flow, it flows between devices) The main screen lists your last 3 pages on your computer (means you don't have to bookmark it when running away from your computer at short notice) You can also "flow" paragraphs or sentences to yourself once again not requiring bookmarking. Or for a quick Google search the one handed flow browser excels at. Yes there is still room for improvement but it's still a "very" new browser. I can see it living along side the main browser very nicely. Or if successful incorporate some ideas into the main browser.

  • Flow does not need a separate browser - in fact having a separate app for just this functionality is a weird approach. No need to justify such a move.

  • Just came in here searching for the bookmarks, realizing that this is one of the most visited topics in this forum. The browser itself is pretty amazing. It's very small in size, has a very cool innovative features and is super fast. But bookmarks. This means I'll be forced to stick to the 'normal' Opera-browser for now.

    Maybe if you only visit 5 regular sites this won't be a problem. But for me with a huge list of sites I like to visit the choice between using a browser with or without bookmarks is an easy one. And only using the browser as an extension to my desktop browser also makes no sense. If I want to continue browsing on my mobile and decide to save a website then I can't.

    Besides, I can already open up my desktop tabs in the normal Opera Mobile browser, so why use Touch?

  • @bbildman said in Where are the bookmarks.:

    ... I have MANY arcane bookmarks that took me a long time to discover that involved MUCH searching. To abandon those bookmarks would be a kind of browser suicide for me. Who wants to try to retrace the steps I took to have found those sites in the first place, much work went into finding them

    You said it so well! Also sometimes I accidentally stumble across something I didn't know existed & would never find again without a bookmark.

    "Browser suicide" says it all. Losing bookmarks is not the only form of browser suicide, but it would do the trick.

    I don't see why we can't just have Flow as a option in Opera Mobile & Mini.

  • this is presumptuous at least

  • I have over 1500 bookmarks so I'm using opera for Android and touch (only if I'll need to send something to flow). I hope they'll add bookmarks to touch so I could use only 1 browser. And let me delete the most visited sites, gosh, it's driving me crazy... Whenever I clear the history the original most visited (booking, facebook etc) are back!

  • I use my bookmarks everyday! There are too many to for speed dial, and I don't want to type addresses in all day. I would be lost without them.

  • I just don't understand the logic of this. The poster claim to not want bookmarks but still talk about saving pages. Let's say your doing research or something and saves it in your flow. And then 3 months later you need to find it again. What's the simplest way to find them?

  • I love the UI for Opera Touch. I personally think it is the most intuitive mobile browser and I even switched my desktop browser to Opera for sync. But I jumping ship after I tried for several minutes to find my bookmarks and found that there are none. I may give Opera Mobile a try but that feels like a step backward. It seems like bookmarks + Touch is something many of us would enjoy.

  • @pongalong It truly seems like no one is listening. I understand if someone doesn't want to use bookmarks, then they just don't use them. But the rest of us are made to not have any choice with Flow. Many of us have been using them for years (I've been using them for as long as they've been around (30 years?), and I am not willing to give them up. Opera is superior in every other way, but forcing users to abandon bookmarks is causing them to use other browsers, which is really a shame.

  • @4troses I've partially solved this by 'starring' so it shows up on the New Tab page, under the Top Sites. This gives you one-direction access to your existing bookmarks (i.e. you can't edit them in any way), but it's better than nothing. Only works if your synced data is not protected by an additional sync passphrase...

  • @leocg thanks Mate
