Firefox Speed Dial needs an easier way to add pages to the thumbnails & to be added to the Synch options.

I'm hoping Opera will add the option for Custom thumbnails in Opera 11.10 expect it probably this week, I love the thumbnail crop option in Firefox's Speed Dial I'd love Opera to copy that as well.

By the way you can change the text colour of your thumbnail Titles some of yours are hard to read.
You can already use custom thumbnails in Opera. All that you have to do is take an image of your choice, and rename it to the same alphanumeric identity of the thumbnail already in the Opera thumbnail folder, then replace the original with the one that you renamed. It is not as easy as the way we are doing it in FF, but it can be done. You are right about the text color. That is something that couldn't be changed in any means that I know of, and since I couldn't edit the titles used, I preferred for them to disappear in the background. However, in FF I have now chosen a color that I can see.
To change the text colour you have to change the skin there's loads to choose from.
With Opera 11.10 beta you can now edit the thumbnail titles.

Both Opera & Firefox's Speed dial allow you to drag a bookmark directly to the Speed dial thumbnail.

chrome speed-dial use image from HD?
Chrome Speed-dial has an option in Edit menu to use Dial Image URL. But what I'd like to do is use images from my HD. At the moment all I can figure to use my own custom made image is to upload it to my web site and paste the URL. Seems like there should be a way to get it to load off the HD. ...
