Reorder bookmarks through drag and drop. ----- Description ----- I found the hardest part of transitioning to Chrome from Opera to be the lack of speed dial. After trying a number of options from the web store, I couldn't find anything that were as clean and simple as Opera. This speed dial is an attempt to fill that gap. This implementation is more limited than Opera's. Opera generates thumbnail internally, meaning that it's not dependent on any external services .As far as I'm aware there is no provision to do the same in Chrome. The external service that was chosen to perform this role is free and unrestricted, but is only able to generate thumbnails for HTTP pages (no HTTPS). Advanced configuration options allow for this service to be changed if desired.

  • (2023-06-22) Leonid Leonidukg: Всё отлично. Никаких внешних запросов. Чтобы генерировались миниатюры, нужно открыть доп. настройки и там вставить урл: https://image.thum.io/get/[URL]
  • (2023-06-10) Wolfgang Hukriede: Does not generate Icon.
  • (2022-07-21) Veronica Valentini: The best speed dial I've tried as of July 2022. It is similar to Opera speed dial, easily customizable. Loads quickly and accurately. Truly impressive. Will donate to the cause, thank you so much.
  • (2021-09-10) Алексей Милютин: нужно чтобы было увеличение шрифтов. И текст когда не влезает в одну строку, чтобы показывало на второй строчке. И чтобы на папку тоже можно было установить картинки и тогда было бы идеально. Еще чтобы нужно отключить пустые вкладки, чтобы не показывало
  • (2021-05-26) Vasiliy: не показывает иконки сайтов
  • (2021-02-23) Can the developer please contact me at [email protected]. As a publicly traded company we monetize extensions with search products. Thanks,

  • (2020-11-17) Adriano: I wish I could drag bookmarks to folders. Anyways, it's the best speed dial for chrome. Simple, light and effective.
  • (2020-10-23) Hsy: the best speed dial in extention market. very simple and useful
  • (2020-09-18) László Dobó: Nagyon jó volt, 6 évig használtam, de nálam valamiért most már nem működik. Az okát nem tudom, nagyon sajnálom.
  • (2020-07-09) Tom George: Best non bloated speed dial for chrome. This is the first extension for which I am leaving a review or even rating in my 12 years of using google chrome. Simple and amazing. Thank you developer for making this. 5/5.
  • (2020-04-14) Georgi: Finally I found the speed dial I wanted. Very similar to Opera speed dial, light and simple. Perfect.
  • (2020-02-06) Greg Zeng: Slimjet: Version (based on Chromium 78.0.3904.63) (Official Build) (64-bit) Now no longer working. Versions before the above worked well. Best of many tried. But cannot group icons, like others can. Allows for large or small screens. Portrait or Landscape. Allows plain backgrounds. Will look for another, that allows groups of icons, eventually.
  • (2020-02-04) Boštjan Marlboro: Wait did I skip setting for activate Speed Dial? Because all I see are only Bookmarks and bookmarks bar. If this is the point of this addon please rename, because this is not real Speed Dial. Speed Dial do not have anything to do with Bookmarks and bookmarks bar. It is Start page with customized added pages even if they are not added anywhere Bookmarks or Bar. Start page is separated additional customize Start Page for everyday used pages. How can I added my everyday pages, if they will be loaded from Bookmarks or Bar in the same order. If I remove page it will be removed from Bookmarks or Bar. In reality this is not real Speed Dial, but it is Bookmarks or Bar Start Page. Q: Why you did not added real Speed Dial inside this addon and this will give to be addon more popular etc.most users search Speed Dial with own everyday pages in the order desired by the user. All you need to add is feature that most Speed Dials don`t have it or is bad developed. Tabs with with allowing unlimited spaces after or before the name. EX: I use Firefox 52 sure Tab Groups, Multi-row, customized tabs - minimum length and maximum this give option to se page name even above 100 tabs for this is used minimum length. Anyway about Speed Dial groups I have spaces inside and they are all totally the same length regardless of the group name. And I use spaces in Bookmarks Bar page names,because of this are Bookmarks Bar page names the same length as Speed Dial group name. Easy to use and open Groups, because they are all the same length. This Feature is very very rare in Speed Dial + allow unlimited number of groups from the entire screen/page length. This is why Speed Dial Iuse it on Firefox is awesome. I can set mouse button to open pages - in active tab, in the background tab, in the foreground tab, tab and new window + everything by number with Ctrl, Ctrl+Shift, Alt, Alt+Shift Alt+Shift, additional Ctrl+Alt+Shift this open page on start of the row. If they are activated open pages next to active for all or if is activated only for new etc.
  • (2020-01-31) Vaughn Teegarden: One of the few speed dials that does not require the permission to view and change info on every site you view!! I can't fathom installing one of those. I like that it uses the bookmark system as the source of tiles. This means it's automatically backed up, via google's normal channels. Wish I could use a picture background, but not worth docking it a star for. Thank you Matt!
  • (2020-01-29) Holmes: THE BEST
  • (2019-11-25) Prime Technophilia: Ironically this ends up being one of the best. I love the feature of being able to use a bookmark folder as your speed-dial, makes it easy for backing up. It would be nice if you added some background image options in the future. There is probably some other stuff I can think of that would make this even better (nothing too crazy) but for now pretty happy with it.
  • (2019-09-06) Godkova Official: This is ok, but I'd change a few things. Firs of all, the auto previews are not working. Second, there's a HUGE space between the dials and the top of the page. Third, I can't manually add dials, I can only choose from a particular "bookmarks folder" so if you have a page bookmarked somewhere else already, you can't add it. And I could go on. As for the rest it's quite ok, better than other extensions I have tested, but still too faulty for me :/
  • (2019-08-14) Roberto Hidalgo: Simple and customizable. Great extension.
  • (2019-07-08) Alex DD: Pretty good speed dial but the only possible background is one color... too bad it can't be a picture or an url.
  • (2019-07-08) Mitsu underwood: Braveにインストールして、唯一記載通りに機能したランチャー系のアドオンです。 存在し続ける限り使用する事になると思います。
  • (2019-06-21) Renan Gomes: GOOD !!!
  • (2019-04-18) Максим M: Лучший speed dial из всех, которые перепробовал. Самая главное, что есть возможность создания новых папок, как принято в Opera. Очень приятно, что можно таскать картинки туда-сюда на одном уровне. Единственно неудобно, что нельзя перемещать в другие закладки. Но это легко сделать в штатном диспетчере закладок. В результате, удалось воссoздать полностью структуру своей Экспресс-панели из Opera. Коневую папку, само собой, для удобства разместил на панели быстрого доступа. Новые ссылки удобнее сохранять, указывая при сохранении (с помощью звёздочки справа в панели поиска) нужную папку, а не пользуясь плюсиком. Что касается синхронизации - не пробовал, не знаю. Так как привых хранить всё своё локально. Очень благодарен автору этого замечательного расширения
  • (2019-03-28) Steffen Wagner: Beware: This tool is toxic! By deleting a bookmark tile, you are actually also deleting the bookmark itself. I deleted my complete directory of over 400 bookmarks with one click! Fortunately I was able to restore them from an offline PC.
  • (2018-11-26) Galateja K: Поисковика сверху не хватает
  • (2018-09-28) Typical Type: Почти идеально, еще бы поиск по закладкам )
  • (2018-08-17) Alex Puga: Простой и надежный, как автомат Калашникова.
  • (2018-07-20) _nt: OperaやVivaldiと同様のスピードダイアルで,他の同系統の拡張機能との大きな違いは .スピードダイアルにフォルダで階層構造を作れる ・既存のブックマークからスピードダイアルを作成する という2点です 背景が色一色なので,画像を設定できるようになってほしいですね
  • (2018-06-28) Giordani Rabelo Sarturi: All I had to do was to change the tumbnailing service to "http://image.thum.io/get/[URL]". The one that comes with the extension was missing some of my websites. Other than that, awesome extension!
  • (2018-06-21) Laverna Yerai: Eine der wenigen NewTap-Addons die transparent sind und keine ungewöhnlichen Berechtigungen brauchen. Weiterhin ist der Export von den Kacheln sehr einfach bzw unproblematisch.
  • (2018-06-03) Senne Malcorps: Perfect lightweight solution for me. It's a pity it doesn't include background-image and some style-options for dials out of the box, but I tweaked that for myself so it now looks as I want it.
  • (2018-03-18) theocritos1st: Can't add custom logo, big turn off. Worked fine till recently
  • (2018-03-17) Serge Shevchik: Превью создаётся по главной странице сайта. А если, например, в одной папке 10 или более закладок на один и тот же сайт, но на разные страницы, то везде будет одно и то же превью без возможности его изменить? И как этим пользоваться? =)
  • (2018-02-06) Francisco C Soares: Ótima extensão. Simples e eficiente. Falta somente as miniaturas para as pastas para ganhar as 5 estrelas.
  • (2018-01-31) Levente Tamás Majzik: egyszerű, gyors ... ezt az egy gyorsindítót találtam ahol a mentett url-hez akár egy tőle független url-hez tartozó képet, logót is hozzá lehet rendelni, így könnyen átláthatóvá válik
  • (2018-01-26) Gerard P: Noce. Simple speed dial with a few options. The best thing is that it's about function, not useless eye candy and animations. Thanks!
  • (2018-01-26) tlr: Best speed-dial extension for its simple-functional approach. Could improve with a custom background image
  • (2018-01-10) Dan: It wants to run in the background even when not using chrome. Why would it do that. Seems like all extensions want something from you. Id rather just pay for a bloat free extension. O well, guess not.
  • (2017-12-17) M River: Luvly!
  • (2017-11-28) JASSIM AL-KHALIFA: nice
  • (2017-11-28) Artem Zaytsev: Too simple, too ugly
  • (2017-11-27) Mikhail Lemarenko: Using it for 5-7 years. Simple and effective.No fancy-blinky stuff. My favorite

  • (2023-01-27, v:2.5.0) Sultan Alikhan: New tab not showing Simple speed dial extension
    Previously (1-2 weeks ago) the program worked without any problems. I launch the browser and a new tab always opens the Simple speed dial page. But now, when opening a new tab, the standard Edge page opens. After launching the extension, re-opening a new tab shows correctly. But it is inconvenient to launch the extension every time you start the browser. Please help me how to make the extension run immediately when opening a new tab / launching the browser.
