Speed Dials for Web Browsing on Multimedia Computers

July 28th, 2007 by abhishta

I do a lot of wap browsing on my N91 and I feel that the current bookmarking system isn’t all that great! With over 30+ bookmarks (and that’s very less by other people’s standards), its really annoying that the only way I can scroll is either up or down when selecting bookmarks.

I was trying out the Speed Dial extension for Firefox and in my opinion, functionality like this is should definitely be incorporated into current multimedia computers. There are 12 standard shortcut keys (0-9 and *, #) on a normal keypad and each of them can be assigned to a bookmark of your choice. There should a be visual view for bookmarks allowing you to scroll sideways as well. To put it in a nutshell, if you’ve used Widsets in the past, what I’m envisioning will look pretty similar to it.

Do you think it will enrich the multimedia experience offered by multimedia computers?
