Workspaces with different speed dials and bookmarks

  • It would be nice to have an option to toggle the option of having global bookmarks bar (for every workspace) or to have specific bookmarks per workspace.

  • I second...or 7th this...

  • I also think that would be a great add-on!

  • I'd love this! Seems like the next logical step after workspaces.

  • Would like that too

  • Makes a lot of sense.
    Has my vote for inclusion, too

  • Absolutely! Big time supporter of this feature improvement 🔩 🖇 love the feature anyway. Thanks!

  • Not only the speed dial, the Favorite bar should be empty on every new workspace.

  • @chimpee I agree, I use FVD Speed Dial 3D add-on for Chrome, and I'd love for this built-in speed dial to be more customizable, custom images for each speed dial, different frames, shapes etc.

  • Alternative Solution: fix the tabs on the workspaces you want different bookmarks on, so they will be locked and easier to manage.

  • @eweise, totally agree. I think to customize the bookmark bar for each workspace is mandatory to take real advantage of this feature.

    Please Opera people we need it!

  • @eweise Yes! I just started using Opera and thought that was how it was going to work. Sad that it isn't. Opera please make it a thing.

  • Another unnecessary item, I'm all against it.

    Create n folders in Bookmarks bar named whatever you like - WS1, WS2 ...WSn. Open WS1 and then use WS1 menu, for example. Do not multiply "wishes for wishes"! Never ever you worked with tree menus?

  • @pavelopdev , you make me laugh...

  • @eweise +1

  • Upvote for this ER.
    I love workspaces and the Opera browser.

    I have workspaces for private, work 1, work 2, work 3, development, media.
    Just with the time I get confussed that the same bookmarks-bar is the same at all workspaces.

    It would be great if i can stay private with private bookmarks only, when work-1 then bookmarks for only work-1, and so on..
    So - even in my spare-time I don't get really remembered with the bookmarks of the work all the time.
    That would be much more organized.

  • @dutchharry Cannot you create submenu trees of main menu for your workspaces - naming them the same as your workspaces?
    e.g.
    workspaces

    • private
    • work1
      ...
    • development
    • media
      • radio
      • tv
      • youtube
        etc

    Why do you want to multiply complexity of Opera browser with unnecessary extensions?

  • @pavelopdev yes, you can. For that matter you don't really need workspaces, you can just group or arrange your tabs.
    But it's all about convenience. It saves a click. And it adds up over a day, over a week, over a month.

  • @pavelopdev because we don't want out illegal download/ hacking sites on the main bookmark toolbar in the era of zoom calls and all...

  • @dutchharry said in Separate Bookmarks for Workspaces:

    So - even in my spare-time I don't get really remembered with the bookmarks of the work all the time.

    Sorry, my previous post was not good english.

    @pavelopdev You descriped a way of organize the bookmarks that of course is possible for people who want it that way. Of course that way dont need to be changed!

    I see this request as feature for people - who do not want to be reminded of or see work (or whatever) in specific spaces.
    With 1 default bookmarkbar that is the same in every workspace - work and private life are mixed up. One in its free time is constantly reminded of the work that actually needs to be done. During work one is led to private content.
    Or even - for a meeting one want to have a clean bookmarkbar with only the bookmarks needed.
    In meetings I don't want to show anyone how I organize my bookmarks or which ones I have.

    Of course I could use another browser but no.. let's stay with Opera 🙂

    I think Opera is already capable of this feature!
    If you open bookmarks to edit - it is already categorized as "Bookmarkbar", "Fast-choises" and "Other bookmarks".
    At fast-choises I can edit bookmarks for every Opera-Browser connected to the same Opera-user-account on PC, Mac, mobiles, etc already!
    Like on my PC I can edit the fast-choice-bookmarks for mobilephone, Mac, etc thats only for that specific device.
    This is Opera default functionallity already.

    Of course this feature need not to be activated by default!
    There are no changes for people who want to have just 1 bookmarkbar with the same bookmarks on every workspace!

    Technically it could be done/solved like this - what I would prefere and suggest! 😉

    ** Default like now - no changes for the user!
    There is just 1 same default bookmarkbar with the same bookmarks for every workspace.

    ** For the feature (add on) its an setting to activate on the workspace:
    At each workspace there should be a setting/flag like "own bookmarkbar".
    Now it is possible for this workspace to have an own bookmarksbar.
    If this flag is not activated - the workspace just show the default bookmarkbar.

    At bookmarks (edit) could be a category "workspaces" added. Now here I can see and edit the bookmarks belonging only to that workspace. Like with "fast-choises".
    If I disable the workspace - the bookmarks should not be deleted. Maybe that workspace is activated later again.

    Now I have even added an suggestion how it might could be done technically 🙂
