Opera browser allows marking a link as a favorite and adds it to the bookmark list to revisit later. A simple click on the heart icon in the URL bar will add the page URL to the bookmarks. You can edit, delete and manage bookmarks on the Opera browser. It also allows exporting the bookmarks list and storing them locally on the computer.
As you may already know, Opera Browser is said to be better than Google Chrome and Firefox in various aspects. Mainly because of its extensive features, speed, and reliability, it stands out from the crowd of other browsers.
The UI of the Opera browser is also different from the others and more smooth. Although, one may find it confusing to find all the essential features at once since they are hidden in plain sight.
One of the many features that Opera offer for its users is Bookmarking. Like the bookmark you used to mark the page where you should resume reading from your book, this one is designed for the web.
Bookmarks will help you mark and save the websites you visit frequently or are your favorites to avoid confusion later. You do not have to worry about remembering the URLs anymore.
