Speed Dial for IE 10?

    Question

  • I haven't used IE in years simply because it doesn't have Speed Dial. I will be upgrading to W8 which has IE 10 native and I'm wondering if anyone has come up with a real Speed Dial feature. This type of feature is one of the most popular extensions in Firefox and Chrome so obviously there is a huge market for it. Please don't respond with IE Favorites; it's not even close to being the same thing. A truck and a Porsche are not the same because they have an engine and four wheels.

  • As far as I know, there is not a feature called Speed Dial in Internet Explorer. However, when open a new tab, you can see the websites visited frequently. This is the New Tab page of Internet Explorer, please see if it can meet your requirements.

    Thanks.

  • As I mentioned in my post, IE Favorites is not the same as Speed Dial as anyone who has ever used SD on Firefox or Chrome will tell you.

  • Not even close. I use Opera a lot because of some really nice features. Speed Dial is the most important of those features for me. The second one is the ability to store some indexed text data that allows a person to fill out a form extremely fast. Data such as First name, last name, address 1, address 2, city, state, zip code, tel #, plus a few extra boxes of unspecific data. When filling out a form, one can right click on the entry box, select "insert personal" and choose which piece of data to paste in. First name and last name generates another insert option, which is full name, by simply adding the 2 together. It's like copy & pasting data, except you don't need to select and copy first. the only reason I even use IE is because of compatability issues. If IE 10 had a speed dial page, like Opera, I wouldn't worry about the rest and just switch to IE as my primary browser.

  • I haven't seen a speed dial for IE yet, however, I'm using a global speed dial that works with most browsers.  It's 3x3links.com, aptly named as it is a 3 by 3 square with 9 squares. Each square can be either a link or a folder. For each folder you can repeat the process.  The beauty is that it's browser independent, and once you have the link you can go to any PC/Laptop/tablet and have access to your links.

     

    Though not related to Google, it's hosted at google.  It's simple but effective.  Would be nice to have similar to one of FF extensions where you can create tabs, but can't be picky if it's for free.
