After trying a number of options from the web store, I couldn't find anything that were as clean and simple as Opera. This speed dial is an attempt to fill that gap. This implementation is more limited than Opera's. Opera generates thumbnail internally, meaning that it's not dependent on any external services .As far as I'm aware there is no provision to do the same in Chrome. The external service that was chosen to perform this role is free and unrestricted, but is only able to generate thumbnails for HTTP pages (no HTTPS). Advanced configuration options allow for this service to be changed if desired.

Wonderful! There are some features I would like to have. ・Use images in the background (local address and URI) ・Apply images to each folder individually ・Select EDIT mode or normal use mode (I often move or delete by mistake)
