The Home screen in Opera has five elements
- Depending on your navigation method:
- Fast Action Button (FAB) is Opera’s all-inclusive button, used to create new searches, navigate web pages, open and switch between tabs.
- Bottom bar with back/forward, open new tab, tab and menu buttons.
- The search bar allows you to search for anything or open a web page.
- The main menu can be opened by tapping the overflow menu button in either 1 or 2 above.
- Speed dial section has a list of server pushed speed dials, starred web pages that you add by pressing the star symbol in the menu while browsing, Dapp portal when crypto wallet is activated.
- Recent Tabs From Computer contains the three most recent tabs used on your Opera desktop browser. Your phone and computer must be connected via My Flow for this to be available.
The start page includes the classic opera Speed dial. Add your favorites to the Speed Dial and organise them as you please by tapping the ‘star’ icon in the main menu while browsing a website.
Opera adds a set of popular sites at installation to showcase the functionality and make a few popular sites easily accessible from the start. Newly added speed dials from server will append to the end of the list.
Speed dial has been implemented in version 3.1.0. For the users upgrading from previous version, we will migrate all the top sites from the previous build. Including any starred sites and the Dapp portal, if Crypto wallet is enabled.
You can hide the Speed Dial section of the home page in Settings.
