Going on vacation any time soon? While on the go, you’ll need access to certain sites, whether to check your flight’s status or get tips on where to eat. But, the last thing you want is to waste time typing long URLs on your phone’s tiny keyboard. Instead, before you leave, add these sites to your favorites in Opera’s Speed Dial for fast and easy access on the go.
Track your flights
