Not digging the new Start Page

  • I might be in the minority on this subject, but I am not digging the new Start Page in Opera 25 and have reverted to the old start page.
    Where should I start with my complaints:

    1. The new start page does not show the name of the link in question until after you mouse over it, which makes it hard to impossible to find a specific link quickly in the Speed Dial.
    2. It appears that you are fragmenting things by going back to having a Speed Dial AND a Bookmarks file. It also is hard or more time-consuming to move the things that are on Speed Dial to the new Bookmarks file.

    Basically, I think that you had it near perfectly with the original Speed Dial and phasing out the Bookmarks file.

  • Edit: Sorry to respond to my own post, but after having a friend advise me of how it could be easier to import bookmarks, I will admit I was overly harsh and backstep here.
    The new Speed Dial is fine and the synergy between the Bookmarks file and the Speed Dial is pretty good once I moved all the bookmarks that I had saved on the Speed Dial to the new Bookmarks.

    Like that the new Bookmarks has snapshots of the pages like the old Speed Dial, it makes it MUCH easier to tell when a link has gone dead if it looks on occasion to make sure that the page is still up.
