Please add an option to show bookmarks on new tab empty page like speed dial to save one click.
Plus put a "x" button somewhere on open tabs because first click; select the target tab, second click; swype left to right, third click; close the tab.

Please create a separate issue for each request. It makes tracking them easier.
The closing of tabs is addressed in https://redmine.stoutner.com/issues/416, which will be included in the 3.1 release.

There are a number of complexities relating to this that make it more complicated than might be readily anticipated. Specifically, displaying bookmarks would require dynamically replacing the WebView with a ListView. This would vastly complicate the UI and could create performance issues for people who never use this feature. As such, I am inclined to not go this direction. However, I will leave this feature request open to see what type of user feedback and interest it attracts.

This feature request doesn't have anything to do with the close button. If you have something to say about what some people call speed dial (a bookmark display in the WebView) you can add it here.
However, it should be noted that with the changes in 3.12 to be able to open a bookmark in a new tab, the need for some form of speed dial is diminished.

Each feature request should only be about one issue, which makes tracking changes easier. So, the only thing that should be discussed here is the display of bookmarks in new tabs.
Regarding that feature, have you tried the open bookmark in new tab feature described in #note-6?

I am not inclined to do it as in the picture for the reasons already listed on this page. However, if you can add information that provides a compelling reason to do so that isn't already addressed above I would be willing to consider it. There are times when users point out some aspect of the workflow that I had not previously considered which I find compelling.
