Sync same Speed Dial on every device

  • @wkershner First, you should not expect responses from Opera, specially about suggestions an requests.
    Second, we don't even know if they even started thinking about implementing it.

  • Yes, I agree, this feature is lacking in Opera and needs to be addressed. Cheers

  • This feature would be really useful because I would like some of my devices to share the same Speed Dials but some have their own ones. Unfortunately right now I have like a million separate Speed Dials )

  • I've managed to make that work.

    2 computers 1 SpeedDial.


    Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
    Opera Stable 路 Beta 路 Developer

    Opera Test profile | Opera Back up LinuxMacWin

  • I agree that this could be an option for synchronization.

    But I strongly disagree this being a default behavior, i.e. not having speed dials folders as it is now. The way it is now is the exact behavior as I would expect and a top implemented feature. I don't want the same speed dials on my work and home PC, and actually need third set for my phone.

    I wanted to try the new Firefox Quantum and had a terrible time making it work like this with the Top Sites similar to Opera Speed Dial feature.

  • I use different profiles for

    • Home
    • Study
    • Work
    • ...

    Then, to share the same SD it's much more comfortable.

    But as said, that would be a decision to leave to the user.

  • "Then, to share the same SD it's much more comfortable."

    So if you want to study at home, or do a little work, or have a look at the link you need at work but set it at home you need to switch profile every time?

    "But that, would be a decision to leave to the user."

    Definitely.

    Yes, I do.
    At home I have each profile to use for those purposes.

    In case I've found a new link on the home profile, I just copy/paste it to the needed profile or send it to the email or share it with dropbox.

    I've found that more convenient to keep all clean and organized.

    Maybe you need a "Slow Dial" feature instead. 馃槀

    @leocg I'm thinking Opera should not expect me to keep using their browser, due to lack of concern or help from Opera about problems.

  • Is there anyone here not from Opera software that can explain what the programming problem is with syncing speed dials?

    I don't buy at all "everyone wants different speed dials on every device". That's bs. Nobody does.

    What's the real story here? Is this too big of an issue for Opera Soft to program ? 800 billion options in opera and they can't program the #1 request by users of all time?

    What's the real story here?

  • @btabke Some people want to have the same speed dials on all devices while others prefer to have different ones for home and work for example, so people at Opera decided to give users speed dial sync but not automatically populated each start page with synced speed dials.

  • @leocg
    Only ones EVER in this forum that want separate speed dials are Moderators and Opera Software employees. No one - zero, nada, nobody wants different ones. Speed dials are start page bookmarks and they should be in sync with anything sync'ing them.

    If not - there should be an option. and given Opera's history of "more options the better", the only thing to think, is there must be some weird programming barrier or laziness that keeps them from giving the users the #1 request since speed dials were put in the software.

  • @btabke Those who want different speed dials on different Opera installations already have it, so they don't need to come here or anywhere else to ask for it. That's why you don't see that many people here saying that they want separated speed dials.

    More options = more code = more bugs.

    No effort to provide the most important and requested option (i.e. syncing speed dial on all devices)= no users

  • @rooneyandmuldoon Most important for who? Most requested by whom?

  • yes! at least for desktop devices!
