Opera 15 has been built from the ground up. It's a completely new browser! A lot of you had questions and comments about this version. Let's go through the top five questions we have received about Opera 15.

Bookmarks to Speed Dial

The Speed Dial feature is where your bookmarks belong in Opera 15. When you save your preferred pages in Speed Dial, you have a visual bookmarking system.

You can group your Speed Dials using folders. Simply drag and drop one Speed Dial button on top of another, and it will create a folder. You can also quickly filter items on your Speed Dial by clicking the search icon in the upper-right corner.

Migrating old bookmarks is easy. You can opt to use the bookmark importer when installing Opera 15 so your bookmarks will appear in your Speed Dial. You will then be redirected to your list where you can convert every bookmark into a Speed Dial entry.

But if you liked the way bookmark extensions worked in the old version of Opera, you can install one of our extensions

Tabs

Tabbed browsing is distinctly Opera and as many of our users love this, we want to enrich it with new and better options. While we continue developing the next generation of Opera, you can use a tab extension in the meantime.

Opera Link

We plan to bring the Opera Link synchronization functionality in a future version. For now, you can access your Opera Link data by going to through our web interface.

Mail and RSS

We want to give our users more power when managing their mail. Opera Mail has therefore been released as a separate product to give you an easier, faster and better mail experience. Try out the new client at http://www.opera.com/computer/mail and tell us what you think!
And the RSS feed are now available through extensions like Feedly. Go to addons.opera.com for even more choices – new ones are being added all the time.

Linux

The Linux version of Opera 15 isn't quite ready yet, but we will let you know as soon as it is.

If you haven't tried Opera 15 yet, you can download it free from opera.com. (And Opera 12 is still available there too, from the Computers section of our website.)
