Many users often try to get functionalities of one browser into another. If you want to add Opera-like Speed Dial to Chrome, Edge, or Firefox browser, then you can use a browser extension called Toolbar Dial that will help you get rid of the traditional Bookmarks bar or the Favorites bar and convert it into a good-looking page.
The Speed Dial functionality of the Opera browser looks fancy and different from the default bookmark bar or “most visited pages” panel of Google Chrome in the new tab page. It shows blocks of bookmarked pages with the domain name so that users can find the desired website quickly. The same thing is not available in other browsers until now.
