How Many Bookmarks Do you Have?

    ... seems to be mostly Opera12, Op15+ does not even show up here: http://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/squids/SquidReportClients.htm

    This forum will be a lot better if the losers leave. The constant whining makes it hard to hear any constructive feedback. Opera really don't need to listen to the losers — they do listen to their users.

    Actually, it would be better if they paid attention to the whining, rather than the handful of fanboys who would praise opera even if had had no toolbars, no buttons, and the only website it could display is www.mylittlepony.com.

    As for the Quick Access Bar, in Opera 18 if you enable it, it tells you to restart Opera for the change to take effect, but when you do it goes back to being disabled. Utterly useless.

    This is a case in point. You're just whining, not trying to resolve the issue. The QAB is working in 17, 18, and 19. Search the forum to learn how to enable it — it is disabled by default now.

    The fanboys are also not worth listening to either, but those repeatedly whining on the blogs for bookmarks or a Linux version, or those posting flame-bait on these forums about the imminent demise of Opera, etc., should be banned — no questions asked.

    I know how to enable it. Did you even read my post? I said that when you enable it, it tells you to restart Opera, but when you do that it just goes back to being disabled again.

    Apparently not. The opera:flags setting tells you to restart, the checkbox in Settings, shows or hides the QAB once the experimental feature has been enabled by restarting Opera.

    I have had enough of your antics. Go back to using Opera 12 or Firefox if you don't want to help with testing and improving Opera Next.

  • *SIGH*

    Learn how to read and process information, because it does help a lot when it comes to having conversations.

    1. I go into opera:flags and enable it. It tells me to restart Opera.
    2. I restart Opera and it's still disabled in opera:flags, therefore there is nothing in Settings relating to it.

    And every time I try and enable it, it's just a rinse and repeat of the above.

    I know you have a reputation on here as being a bit of a tool - I've seen it mentioned on a couple of other sites (Filehippo, for example) - and now I can see how that reputation was earned.

    I had that same problem previously, but in the latest 18/19 dev versions it's actually working for me.

  • I made a small oneliner to count all the folders and urls inside the bookmarks.adr from the terminal (shell/bash):

    awk '/\#FOLDER/ {folder++} /\#URL/ {url++} BEGIN {folder=0; url=0} END {print("Folders: " folder "\nURLs: " url)}' bookmarks.adr
    

    Of course 'bookmarks.adr' needs to be replaced with the path to where the file resides. On a Mac for the active user account it can be found here:
    ~/Library/Opera/bookmarks.adr

    Result:
    Folders: 835
    URLs: 6408

    And the file itself is now 1.9 MB big.

    And what I noticed on two macs with synced bookmarks via opera Link:
    The Mac version of Opera 12.16 doesn't handle huge bookmark lists that well. When starting Opera from another user account that hasn't such a massive bookmark list, Opera "feels" much faster and responsive. Especially the problem of the Mac Version, that typing in forms (like now) or the address bar is slow as molasses, seems to be triggered by the bookmarks.

    When starting Opera on both macs it takes some time (sometimes > 1 minute) until the bookmark list from the menu is complete. And typing something in the address bar, a form or even using a simple keyboard shortcut like CMD+C takes some seconds (worst case > 10 sec) until the browser becomes responsive again. What is weird, that when copying via menu instead of the shortcut there's no waiting time at all. But that mostly happens once after starting the browser, or sometimes for some reasons after longer times of inactivity. But for whatever reason copying texts via shortcut leads to a few seconds of unresponsiveness more often.

  • Over a year later, I now have 1280 bookmarks in 85 folders. I am sure that I still have loads that I never use, and some that are broken.

  • One month later, I have 1,053 bookmarks in 73 folders.

    I deleted all of the broken links to the My Opera Forums. Now I found this thread, I have 1,054 bookmarks and 74 folders.

  • 933 bookmarks, up from ~875 six months ago, in 246 folders nested as deep as 5 levels in some cases... but these bookmarks primarily live in Firefox now, after exporting them over from Old Opera. I've yet to do the cleanup of My Opera broken links in Firefox, but that should remove only about 15 or so bookmarks and a couple of sub-folders; I've removed the My Opera links from the 3 Old Opera versions on this system, but haven't run a bookmark count there yet.

  • Not even counting the default Opera bookmarks that I never bothered to delete, I have ~850 bookmarks, and 81 folders. Yeah, no one ever uses bookmarks in Opera.

  • ... Yeah, no one ever uses bookmarks in Opera.

    I don't think Opera ever said nobody uses bookmarks, just that their "target market" largely doesn't. While in some ways, it might be nice to know we're not in somebody's cross-hairs, it certainly doesn't feel all that great, eh?

  • Recently I had a spring cleaning in my bookmarks and deleted many that were broken.

    Bookmarks: 1390.

    Folders: 273.

    I have 10 browsers installed, and I imported the bookmarks in every browser. But 10 x 1390 doesn't count, or what. 😛

    In my archive I've got close to 3000 folders, and I reckon there's a few thousand Internet shortcuts there. It would be fun to know the number, but I don't know how to count the bookmarks without counting other files.

  • I have 87 at the moment and they are increasing constantly.

  • If Stashes counts as bookmarks, then i have 34.

  • Bookmarks: 40 in 4 folders
    Speed dial: 202 in 16 folders
    Stash: 789

  • I have 31 bookmarks.

  • Bookmarks: 40 in 4 folders
    Speed dial: 202 in 16 folders
    Stash: 789

    202 speed dials? Lol....

    I would guess that when you reach a certain point, the amount of speed dials begin to take a toll on the hardware? I have only 12 speed dials.

  • I got 0 bookmarks and 8 items in my Speed Dial. Not sure if it even counts, but bookmarks have never been important to me considering I almost always remember the pages I've been to.
