"Speed Dialâ„¢ is a fresh way to call up the top sites you enjoy throughout the day," said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera. "It's a cool new way to access those sites - you can do it through the Speed Dialâ„¢ or enter the corresponding number in the address bar. I hope current and new Opera users find Speed Dialâ„¢ both enjoyable and addictive."

We made a short introduction to Speed Dialâ„¢, and here's a screenshot.

"Speed Dialâ„¢ fits in with my life.

"It's far faster than typing the URL over and over, and I can use it to see when my Speed Dialâ„¢ sites are updated - so I can have one easy overview of what's going on with my favorite sites."
