Opera brings 'speed dial' to browsers

An easy ride for surfers

Brief Browser maker Opera has added a "speed dial" feature to the latest version of its browser, allowing surfers to gain ready access to their favourite sites more easily.

Speed Dial allows surfers to nominate their top nine sites as visual favourites that are immediately available in any new tab. The feature, explained here, debuted in Opera 9.20 this week. Opera 9.20 with Speed Dial is available for Windows, Mac and Linux flavours at no charge. The browser supports 31 languages.

In other browser related news, Opera released a version of its software for Nintendo Wii gaming devices on Tuesday. ®
