RE: Where are the bookmarks in Opera 18?
yeah - I can import bookmarks ... :rolleyes:
I started the launcher with the additional parameters, but no UI came up. After waiting for about 10 minutes, I killed the 3 idling processes. Then I launched Opera-Chromium again (normal, without command line switch) just to see that most of my previous settings are gone and my speedial is riddled with the default advertisement stuff, facebook etc that I don't use. OK, that was easy to kill.
Then I typed in the bookmark-importer URL and got the option to import to
QAB, I clicked it and after tedious confirmation orgy for each of my folders they really were there.
After some sorting
QAB became somewhat useful, (I should have sorted them into one folder in O12 before, it would have been easier because there is a decent bookmarks manager) but then I saw the drawbacks:
I can't keep 2 folders open at the same time, I can't stick to a certain "scroll" position in a folder, I can't select multiple bookmarks to open at the same time, I can't associate keyboard shortcuts, I don't see when I have last accessed the bookmark (which was very handy for checking if several sites are still working) etc. pp.
In the end it is still a long way to go until the new system becomes really usable. I wonder what takes so long to implement it - it is more than half a year now - and according to the claims of several employees the Desktop team is now bigger than ever ...

Replace the names and the products and you see basically the situation we have here with Chromium-Opera ...
