Opera Speed Dial + Sync

Yes, Opera still rocks. Even more in V 10. Now you have more than 9 speed dial positions. Well… maybe, you don’t even know, what speed dial is? Here’s the deal: Have you ever wondered, why there is always a  lot of space wasted, when you open a new tab and haven’t inserted an address yet? You don’t know, what I’m talking about?

Do it! Open a new broser tab right now - but come back to this page again afterwards and continue reading! What did you see? Right: Nothing. When using Opera 9, the big blank page is replaced with nine speed dial fields, that means, you can place up to nine previews of your favorite websites on this “blank” page . You can then access these websites by

  1. a) clicking the with the mouse (this is ok and fast, but only for beginners)
  2. b) typing the position into the address bar (e.g. “3” will call the third link – so this is for more experienced users *g*)
  3. c) using the shortcut CTRL+ <position>, e.g. CTRL+3 to directly access the page (yes, this is for pros :-) ) Hint: This only works for the positions 1 to 9. Why? Think about it…

That’s cool isn’t it? And with Opera 10 you have even MORE than 9 speed dial fields. Yiepee! But, that’s not all!

When you’ve got a myopera.com account you can sync your speed dial fields (and all your favourites and so on) between all the clients you’re using. This is great, because now I’don’t have to manually find an interesting article again on my private pc that I discovered at work.

Ok, before you ask: The data transfer for synchornisation is encrypted. Otherwise this feature would be completely useless anyway. I checked it out using the (great) tool fiddler. But I will talk about fiddler another day… Well here’s the evidence for encryption…

  3. You could increase the Speed Dial to any size you liked in Opera 9.x by editing the speeddial.ini file, not that it matters now in Opera 10 though.

    The only problem I have with the Opera Sync is not being able to sync more than the default 9 speeddials as I sadly found out the first time I tried syncing. If there is a way to sync the actual number of speeddials I would be grateful to know, and this being Opera I presume there's a way...;)

  4. Hi Mog!
    I'm sorry, but I don't have this problem. Synchronisation works fine with 12 speeddials for me on all my installations.

  6. Say you have 25 speed dial positions set up on the first computer, then sync them to a second computer where you only have 9 speed dial positions set up, then only 9 positions will ever get synced, even if you later increase the number of speed dial positions on the second computer to 25.
    A bug?
