In latest snapshot of Opera (b2014) we can see that developers in Opera want to improve speed dial. Unfortunately, it seems that they started with improving something that everybody likes (ok, perhaps not everybody, but I think that most of us like more the old version of speed dial with fixed layout) and some things that should be improved are still same as before.
