Bookmark sharing comes to the Opera browser

Oslo, Norway - December 3, 2014

Sharing links for multiple sites made easier

Users of the Opera for computers browser can now easily share multiple bookmarks with their contacts. The new bookmark sharing option debuts today as a default option in the browser. The feature is available for Windows, Mac and Linux users.

Bookmark sharing in Opera

Until now, sharing lists of interesting products, offers and articles meant pasting multiple links, one after another, into a message. So, if it was twenty hotel inspirations or Christmas gift ideas, this meant entering 20 different URLs.

With Opera's new bookmark sharing feature, users can simply add their web findings to their bookmarks and press the “Share” button. This gives them a single, anonymous link to share with their friends or family. To see how simple it is, check out the video.
 
“Browsing the web today often includes a social side. You want to share anything interesting you read online, you ask your friends for their opinions before you purchase something, or you share inspirations, lists of favorite songs or other interests,” says Zhenis Beisekov, Product Manager of Desktop Products, Opera Software. “It’s time for browsers to reflect this new reality and give people an easy way to share multiple links.”

How bookmark sharing works

With the new Opera 26, users can first save their findings by choosing a thumbnail for each new bookmark from the webpage they are browsing. This transforms bookmarks into a collection of thumbnails that can be organized visually. When users click the “Share” button, all thumbnails and links will be uploaded to a special page, which they can then share via email, social media or a direct message. Here are, for instance, Opera's favorite bookmarks
