Hahaha... This topic again...
@sgunhouse there's no need to enable anything in opera:flags, please update your reference sheet!
Just go to Settings via Opera's menu. The option to enable the bookmarks bar will be there under user interface.
Or... Like myself, you could use the Speed Dial page to store, manage and search your "bookmarks". You can make folders by dragging and dropping an item over another, or right-click the tab bar to save all the open tabs as a Speed Dial folder. Typing in the URL/search bar will show the pages you saved there as suggestions.
Or, if you don't need sorting you can use Stash, and there's a flag to enable the address bar to suggest Stash items too.
What a painful way to implement bookmarks to satisfy touch devices at the expense of the traditional desktop.
I understand your solutions but isn't this just a compromise.
Isn't Speed Dial "a set of visual bookmarks that is displayed every time you open a new tab, giving you quick access to your favorite websites and extensions"....the key word here being favorite??
Isn't stash meant as a temporary store of a page you want to come back to but not permanently bookmark??
I thought these were enhancements to bookmarks, not a place to store all your bookmarks.
