@etschrad: Because that's one of the ways they try to monetise the browser?

RE: Where are the bookmarks.Opera Touch
@4troses I've partially solved this by 'starring' https://sync.opera.com/ so it shows up on the New Tab page, under the Top Sites. This gives you one-direction access to your existing bookmarks (i.e. you can't edit them in any way), but it's better than nothing. Only works if your synced data is not protected by an additional sync passphrase...
Right-clicking (Cmd+Clicking) on bookmark folders in toolbarSuggestions and feature requests
Please could you enable Cmd+Clicking (or 'right-clicking') on macOS for bookmarks and bookmark folders stored within folders in the Bookmarks toolbar?
Currently, you can only Cmd+Click on top-level bookmarks (i.e. those stored directly in the toolbar) and top-level bookmark folders (i.e. folders you can see directly in the toolbar).
However, I would like to be able to Cmd+Click on bookmarks stored within those folders (i.e. second-level bookmarks) as well as bookmark subfolders (e.g. actions such as Open All in New Tab).
Chrome, Vivaldi and Brave all allow Cmd+Clicking on all bookmarks and folders in the Bookmarks Toolbar, irrespective of their tier/level. Only Opera doesn't allow this on macOS. Any reason?
Crash when selecting 'Open in Touch' via Share menuOpera Touch
I couldn't find anywhere in the stable iOS app to report bugs/crashes, so am posting it here.
Version: 1.6.0 (Stable, not Testflight beta)
Description: Opera Touch crashes consistently on iOS 12.2 whenever 'Share' >> 'Open in Touch' is selected for any URL in other apps. I think Opera Touch crashes somewhere in the process of something, because a 'ghost window' flashes very quickly after 'Open in Touch' is tapped, but then this disappears and I remain in the originating app.
I have captured a screenshot of this Opera Touch 'ghost screen':

This will give you a direct link from the new tab page to your bookmarks, but you won't be able to edit them in any way.
Skype for WebOpera for computers
This is further to reports such as: https://www.ghacks.net/2019/03/08/the-new-skype-for-web-does-not-work-in-firefox-or-opera/
Opera currently doesn't work with the new Skype for Web (SfW), even when changing the User Agent to a recent Chrome agent string. While I understand this is mostly Microsoft's problem and not Opera's, I am intrigued by why SfW does not work on the latest Opera (after changing the UA). Are there any missing components which do exist in Chrome but not Opera? Any APIs which are disabled? I was under the impression that, with Opera being based on Chromium, making SfW work should be a piece of cake.
Does any of the devs know why this is so?
Thanks in advance.
