Why import for bookmarks is disabled?

Comment by Danilo_Venom
about Opera · Feb 2014 · Helpful Not helpful

I tried Opera for a couple of days and I have to say it's very fast, but I don't know why import for bookmarks is disabled.

When this problem will be fixed maybe I'll switch to it, but now it's a bit annoying :/

Yes , it's grayed .
Maybe they will fix it in the next release , don't forget to tell Opera about this bug .

This menu item is grayed out because it was built only for Opera 12.16 -> 15+ migration.

They don't have a working bookmark importer to import from other browsers at the moment, but you can use workarounds like importing to another Chromium-based browser and copy the Bookmarks file manually from the Chromium profile to Opera profile or the Small XMarks iconXMarks extension from the Chrome Web Store.

I copied the Bookmarks file manually from Chrome successfully! Thank you very much :D

I couldn't really figure out what made Opera so great.

I used Opera for about 20 minutes one time, and I couldn't really figure out what made Opera so great. It didn't feel noticeably snappier than Chrome or even FF, and I didn't find any particularly interesting features, either. Of course, 20 minutes isn't enough time to truly judge a browser, but I'm still sticking with FF for now.

I know this is a few years late but all of the features are built into Opera:
-Mail Client
-Bit torrent client
-Opera Turbo for slow connections
-Tab stacking
-Mouse gestures
-It can read web pages to you
-Session manager (save and reuse groups of tabs)
-Tab thumbnails/Tab pull down
-Content blocking (adblock)
-Very fast download manager
-RSS reader
-Opera link (syncs bookmarks, settings history across all of you Opera installs, including mobile)
-Opera Unite ( great for sharing large files with family)
-Private browsing integrated into the main browser window, not a seperate one
-Widgets
-a basic note taking program
-IRC client

Plus it has the best RAM and CPU usage when you have a tonne of tabs open all day and all of the cool features that are considered 'standard' for a good browser were invented by Opera.
You should read their Wikipedia article, it's great!

Let me know what you think!

Opera is not applicable for me without XMarks:

For me the Firefox Add-On Xmarks (available also for Internet Explorer) is indispensable for Bookmark administration.
The fact, that XMarks (still) is not available for Opera, is for me a reason not to use Opera.

Opera is a good browser, but I find Firefox to be better.

It is a good browser, but I find Firefox to be better. The thing I liked most about Opera was the quickpane that had like 9 webpages that you use a lot in, but you can get a Firefox plugin that does the same thing.

Opera has been benchmarked to be the fastest and safest browser available for Windows today. With opera 10 coming out, it will be 35% quicker than opera 9.64.
