Is it possible when long pressing a link, to see the weight of what you're going to be loading.
There's a lot of heavy pic laden websites, even amongst news sites.
Maybe a toast warning if over a Mb?

RE: Automatic new Speed Dial entriesOpera for Android
@vince42 I noticed that too, Vince.
But I'd been a member of my.opera for many years, and know they're a trustworthy company that are reaching out with other trusted services.
The new icons ( I think there's been 2 in half a year) are easily spot-able at the end of the speed dial, and don't add themselves to a folder.
Perhaps Opera could add a permanent folder 'Promo' and add them there! That really would be intrusive!
web page info (Kb) images etc..Opera for Android
A really useful function in the old java 4# of operamini was the 'page info' that showed the images on a page & their weight, and allowed usual download.
It seemed to be a mix of a bookmarklet and server download info and was sometimes useful, but always incredibly interesting, when webmaster work was being undertaken on a page.
Old widgets and info made operamini the 'swiss army knife' of feature phones.
Even just showing people what IP address / location Opera has for them, would be useful, andan inexpensive addition.
I like entering ' file:///storage/ ' and seeing the device as the app sees it. I'm sure this could be expanded into a type of file browser (like ES or Quickpic), if you're going to include Mp4 playback now.

RE: Lack of logos in the Speed Dial:Opera for Android
@firstlast It's often the .ico isn't served from the correct domain root link, or sometimes is another call to another server entirely ('hot-linked). Some big websites getting this wrong, especially with multiple @ width sizes & apple icons.
The fact some work shows Opera is trying to grab them.
Very Large Caches...Opera for Android
Any type of surfing for more than a few minutes leads to very large cached data, either with or without News.
Why cache so much all the time?
It would make sense if it speeded page loads, but there's practically no speed difference since the old Nokia feature phone / symbian days.
