How useful is bookmark sharing in Opera?
Opera offers some ideas on using the feature, here are they: " Trying to book airline tickets for a romantic week away? Create a list of options from across airlines and share them with your partner. Found some funny cat videos but they are all hosted on different websites? Add them all to a bookmark folder, hit the share link and pass them on.".
Honestly, I don’t see any use with this feature, What do you think? Have you found bookmark sharing introduced in this version useful? Share your opinions with us in the comments.
