a modern speed dial for firefox and chrome
Quick, visual access to your favorite bookmarks from the new tab page.
- Respects your privacy. Unlike other speed dial addons, there is no tracking.
- Automatically generates thumbnails and screenshots.
- Uses the browser's bookmarks library so speed dials are synced automatically.
- Fast, minimal UI
Inspired by the great speed dial in Opera.
Can I use different images for the speed dials?
Yes! Just right-click the speed dial and select Edit.
One of my site thumbnails disappeared?
YASD includes a thumbnail linked using the Open Graph standard when available. This keeps those thumbnails up to date automatically, but if the website removes the image it may no longer load in YASD. Simply remove and re-add the site, or select a different thubmnail.
Why does YASD require the "access your data for all websites" permission?
Why is YASD showing CPU usage in the Chrome task manager?
YASD uses a high performance rendering engine (GSAP) to keep user ineractions and animations smooth. The actual CPU usage is very low (confirm using your OS task manager) but some cycles are used to elimate jankiness. Note the usage is 0 when YASD is not in the foreground.
Why isn't the address bar focused (active) by default on the new tab / home page?
Unfortunately, this is a bug in Firefox. You can nag Mozilla to fix it here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1411209
