Anyone who has used Opera is all to familiar with the lack of a regular bookmarks toolbar underneath the address bar. Opera’s newest 10.70 release now has an easy to activate bookmarks toolbar feature baked in.

All that you need to do is go to the Opera Menu, down to Toolbars, and select Bookmarks Bar. Instant satisfaction. Our browser’s Opera Menu Button and Tab Bar did offset some when not maximized, but is not hard to live with.

And here is how things looked with our browser maximized. Everything nice and compact while being extremely convenient.

Note: The blog post provides instructions for moving the new Bookmarks Bar to the old Personal Bar position for those who prefer that location.
