Speed dial in version 27

  • I quite liked the experimental speed dial format and I always used it when it was available. Now the browser has been updated to version 27 and that feature of toggling between the two interfaces is gone. I strongly dislike the current interface, and am wondering if I there is a way I could use it again. Also I want to know why they couldn't possibly include the toggle feature in the newest update. What's the harm in having it be available as an option?

  • Hi,

    yeahh i want it back too.
    The new Speed Dial Format was one of the pleasantly Features....

  • That version of speed dials was an experiment we're no longer working on. We are developing something new now. You can enable experimental-start-page in opera://flags if you want to try it.

  • Hi rrzepecki,

    thank you, that works for me

  • Having just returned from a week's holiday, I was horrified to find that the neat Speed Dial toggle option had disappeared. I thoroughly dislike the current messy over-detailed, hard-to-read, fussy layout and much prefer the simpler bold block option. Now I have to magnify the screen to decipher the Speed Icons! Not all changes are improvements and here is conclusive proof. Surely this is a retrograde step! I hope that Opera re-instal the toggle option or something similar very soon.

  • Thanks to rrzepecki

    his susgestion works for now. I am disappointed that Opera is abandoning this though I see it is suggstive of the Windows 8 interface (probably why I like it) so this may be for legal reasons.

    You obviously did not bother to read the post two places above yours, but instead, you effectively just added your name to a list.

    People really should take time to read, they would be amazed how much they will or could find out, if they did actually bother.

    Oh well, we can but hope. 🙂

  • No need for snark linuxmint.

  • Funny thing is, there was quite a bit of ranting (some here, some over at the Opera Blogs), voicing displeasure at the experimental speed dial - some of it quite rude. I assumed the speed dial was reverted back as a result. It seems some people actually like it and want it to return. Maybe in future Opera shouldn't include experimental features in the stable release but should use Opera developer for this and perhaps use the blogs page to get user feedback. Trouble is, by playing around with the speed dial on the stable release, they've ended up with unavoidable negative feedback!
