Quick Access Bar AKA Bookmarks bar is now available in Opera Settings. As promised, Opera software has added bookmarking functionality to their browser, currently available in Opera 18 developer channel-  not enabled by default though, you can turn it on from Settings.

When Opera started to use Chromium, they ditched bookmarks functionality and suggested users to use speed dial and stash for bookmarking purposes, which most don’t liked, that’s why Opera had no other option but to bring the  Quick Access Bar feature back and of course, till now they made it available through opera:flags in Developer and next channels. Interested users can enable it from that page. That hassle no longer required, but you still need to visit Settings in Opera to enable it.
