I currently have close to a hundred shortcuts that I have saved on my desktop. While I can save pages as bookmarks, if I saved that many, it would create a nightmare trying to find the one I want. On my desktop I can create icons for them, group them by similarity, etc., NONE of which can be done in Opera. The more important question already asked but never answered with an actual answer is: why, when every other Browser available allows the user to do that, Opera does not. It was why I quit using Opera last time, and I'm about to quit using it again for the same reason.
Another question is: why there isn't a method to ask the question to the people that need to answer it, which is the Opera developers. Other users are not likely to know why as is evident.
Final question is: Why is there always someone on every forum that apparently LIVES on the forum, and instead of providing useful answers, trolls the comments and challenges them with questions like "Why do you need that?" Why do you need to know that? If you have a solution, offer it. If you don't know, keep quiet. 7,874 posts???? SERIOUSLY???
