Default How to get Opera on Android to open on startpage?

Have Opera, Google Chrome and Firefox on Android and the only one i can get to open on startpage is Firefox. Can someone explain how it is possible to do it on Opera or Chrome too?

If I understand it correctly danielson, you mean how to add a shortcut icon for Opera or Chrome to the home screen. If so, see this tip which may help http://www.techsupportalert.com/cont...d-Remove-Icons

Thanks but actually, what i meant is when you open up Opera on Android, it opens to the last places you were at. If i had exited with 4 tabs open, re-starting Opera in Android gives me those same 4 from where i had left off.

Firefox always starts up on default page.

Got your point now. Each of these three mobile browsers seems to act differently in handling tabs.

Firefox:
It has a user setting to restore tabs or not after quitting Firefox.

Opera:
Press the Opera icon then the Exit button, it closes all tabs.

Chrome:
It has a user setting to merge tabs and apps. When set on, other tabs are accessible via Recent tabs.

Took a look at Opera and Chrome on Android, and I did not see any setting to set a default page, like there is in Firefox. So, I don't think you can change the default page in those two browsers, unless someone else knows better.

I'm curious... if you used Opera on PC and on Android and you used the Opera sync, and you set your start page on your PC, if that would affect your Android start page?

Thanks Jojo!
Not sure about the Chrome one though.

Not that i know of.
At least not in the stable version.
Perhaps in a dev version?
