    Is there a browser with safari like access to bookmarks? It seems like with the default browser and chrome it takes like 3 or 4 presses to get to your actual bookmarks. With safari on ios, you hit one button and all your bookmarks are there...

    Thanks

    I use Boat, and the bookmarks are accessed via a star in a small task bar at the bottom of the screen.

    Dolphin has an option to give access to your bookmarks by a slide to the right, or you can enable a bottom tool bar which has a bookmark link similar to the boat browser.

    In the mobile version of Firefox when I hit the search button on my device I reach a page with my most visited sites, my bookmarks & my history...

    So it's either 1 click to reach the 'top sites' or 2 clicks to reach the 'bookmarks' here...

    You can put the bookmarks on your home screen. That's what I do.

    With boat, dolphin and opera, the feature you are looking for is called the speed dial. Just enable it and you'll see bookmarks on the homepage.

    Mmmm.... What am I missing?. When I'm browsing with either Dolphin or Opera, speed dial doesn't give me one tap access to bookmarks, unless I open a new tab and although Opera has unlimited bookmarks on speed dial I think Dolphin is limited to ten. With Dolphin if I enable the bottom tool bar I have one tap access or if I enable right slide it gives access to all bookmarks without the need for the bottom tool bar. I prefer the right slide option because it gives full use of the screen.
