That's exactly my point! That link appears to be a .torrent file to download, but it is actually a web page (try clicking the link to see). That webpage has a redirect that ends up at the .torrent file eventually, which is the file I want the URL for ultimately.
I'm strongly in agreement here. I love Vivaldi, but there are a number of extensions I'd like to use that aren't available because of Omnibox incompatibility (including the rust search extension and it's sister extensions).
I've seen it mentioned elsewhere that Vivaldi just doesn't have this API.
I wonder if this is for security or performance reasons...?
In either case, I'd love to see it changed.
There is currently an experimental feature being worked on in the current snapshot version that allows better customization of toolbars. It seems reasonable that it could be adapted to include this feature.
thanks for the update.
@pesala said in "Copy URL" button:
@emvaized It is not that hard, and if you edit the menu it is even easier.
Right-click on the URL field
Copy (move this item to the top of the menu if you do this a lot)
Edit URL Field Context Menu.png
See both my post then tell me again it's not that hard.
@pafflick said in Option to Open a URL / Search Results in a New Tab from the Address Bar with "Enter":
this is already possible with the use of Command Chains:
Indeed it is. Not quite as streamlined as the new tab page has to open first, but definitely does the job.
You really have to think slightly outside the box when it comes to all options that chains can offer.
Thanks for the tip.
Still would like the original request added at some stage though 🙂
Here is the link to the video:
Red circles highlight the left click, green circles highlight the wheel(middle) button click.
The keyboard is not involved at all.
When I paste a new URL (first time) I'm only suggested to use the search engine. If I paste a URL that is in the history, the search engine is displayed above the actual URL.
I am not experiencing this particular issue at all whilst using the Ctrl + click behaviour on the address bar whilst using Vivaldi.
Am in IT and test and troubleshoot many different browsers on many different OSs on a daily basis.

@drkh That URL was a example that multi-byte character sequences are not percent-encoded anymore.
Parameters in query string (that is all after the ?) are percent-encoded.
I think this was not changed to defend against homograph attacks. Unfortunately it makes URL parameters unreadable for most humans.
