Bookmarks are useful, but are they pretty? Putting the emphasis on making bookmarks look good, Norwegian developer Opera Software updated its Opera web browser to version 25 and introduced a new “visual bookmarks” feature.

With Opera 25 you can bookmark webpages by clicking the heart icon, you can choose a thumbnail for the new bookmark, and then you can sort your bookmarks using a good looking collection of thumbnails.

Bookmarking webpages with Opera 25 goes something like this. To easily bookmark a webpage, you can click the heart icon from the right hand side on the address bar. After that, you will be invited to pick a thumbnail for the bookmark; you can assign an image from the website you’re bookmarking. You will also be invited to choose the folder where the bookmark will be saved.

All the websites you bookmark are stored as a collection of thumbnails. It looks something like this.



The video embedded below presents the new “visual bookmarks” feature for Opera 25.



“Over the past year, we did a great deal of research in order to understand what bookmarking options people are looking for today,” says Zhenis Beisekov, Product Manager of Desktop Products at Opera Software. “We realized that many people use bookmarks as a way of tracking their memories, like travel inspiration or a fascinating article. And, since our memories are often visual, we decided to redesign the whole concept of bookmarking.”

Opera 25 for Windows is available for download right here on FindMySoft.
Opera 25 for Mac is available for download straight from Opera Software.

Opera 25 for Linux has recently been rolled out to the Beta channel (previously known as Opera Next).

Opera 25 is all about the visual aspect of working with bookmarks. The previous version focused on the visual aspect of working with tabs. I remind you that Opera 24 came with a tab preview function.
