How To Get Opera Speed Dial In Firefox
Back in April 2007, Opera released Opera 9.2 which had a very interesting feature called Speed Dial. It lets you visit your favourite and most websites quickly from a grid of 9 thumbnails and opens up whenever you open a new tab or window. Many people wanted Mozilla to add this feature in Firefox 3, but wasn’t due to some reasons. There is no need to get disappointed, because now you can add the same feature in Firefox also.
Speed Dial is a Firefox extension developed by Josep del Rio that brings the same functionality to Firefox. With this, you can easily and quickly access your favourite and most websites. After installing this extension, you can open Speed Dial by two methods. By using the Speed Dial button beside the search box (screenshot above), or by entering chrome://speeddial/content in the address bar.
You can assign websites to Speed Dial by using any of the following two methods:
- Use the new “Set as Speed Dial” option in the bookmarks menu
- Right click on a tab, and choose “Set as Speed Dial”
Speed Dial automatically loads in new Firefox windows, but can be set to open in every new tab like in Opera.
