Opera To bring bookmarks back to Its Chromium based browser after criticism from users as they not felt Stash and speed dials as bookmarking replacements in Opera 15. Here is good news for anguished Opera fans over the non-existent Bookmarks functionality in Opera 15, its coming back. When Opera 15 was released, bookmark functionality has been replaced with Speed Dials and to certain extent Opera wants you to use “Stash” for that purpose also.

Opera is hearing feedback from users and they’re on it and they’ve prioritized things to work on and bookmarking functionality is first in list.

Krystian Kolondra in Opera blog Said “But we understand that removing bookmarks entirely for the people who actively use them is a big change, so we are going to build bookmarking functionality as a priority.”

“I can’t give you a date, and it won’t be a clone of Opera 12, but I wanted to tell you that we are listening to you, and that I realize that not having bookmarks as people are used to makes it harder to switch to Opera, whether you are coming from Opera 12, or from any other browser. “ he added.

Just updated from Opera 12 to Opera 16 and see that there are no bookmarks and thus no going to sites already saved. Guess will only use Chrome & IE. Why do you make your product non-functionable?

Whew, thank you for that. I re-installed Opera after not having it for a few months, and thought “Where the heck are the bookmarks?? Every browser has bookmarks.” What was Opera thinking? lol. One of the reasons I like Opera is because of the similarity to Firefox. I use it when I need a browser that isn’t Firefox but need it to function similarly.
