Speed Dial is a popular Firefox browser add-on inspired by the popular browsing interface in the latest Opera browsers. Speed Dial allows you to set your favourite -- or most visited -- sites and it displays them on a special page every time you load a new tab (by default). With its vast configuration options, Speed Dial also allows you to customise the add-on to appear when you open a new Firefox window, which allows you to set this as your home page.
