@Ornorm eh, just the first mod (excluding the nifty custom colors)
if I can get that between my account icon and the separator in the toolbar, then that solves it for me
(I'll settle for an extension that can give me that though)
EDIT: btw, I upvoted just for those who like the sidebar (not me personally)
If properly coded my simple example is spot on to demonstrate how simple it is. It is of course not correct as this is just an example not proper implementation. However to demonstrate that there is no difference to the program if it process "enter" or "shift + enter" it is perfect. It can behave the same. The example shows that Enter or Shift+Enter is the same to the program. It is just a simple parameter which is stored in user settings.
Program watches for key presses. If it's in address bar end the key pressed is Enter it loads the the page in the same tab.
There should be no complex coding or troubleshooting to just open it in a new tab (instead of same tab) when it detects key press Enter.
Everything else is a lie and you can quote generic explanations as much as you want. It won't make it true.
If I'll have time I will download the source code and check it for myself.
Note also that the script given above may give very weird results when the active window is switched by a popup or another program just when you press ctrl+t, this version ensures that when that happens the script won't send the other ctrl+l unexpectedly much later by adding a one-second max time between the ctrl+t and ctrl+l.
; Have the address bar open when you press ctrl+t by adding a ctrl+l right after it.

Compile this with AutoHotkey, and move either the executable or a shortcut to it to this location to have it startup when you boot your computer:
I second this. A simple option in settings to toggle full width address bar would be great! Having it span the entire container until another UI element looks bad imo. An added bonus would be when you focus the address bar, having it scale up .25% or something similar to make the text and action appear more prominent. Just my two cents
@jakepaint You can do the same thing with Vivaldi by adding search engines and giving them a nickname, but bangs and tab to search are really not comparable. If you haven't tried tab to search, I really recommend messing around with it.
Basically, after you use the search feature on any website, it'll automatically (not manually) learn the search pattern for that website. And then when you're typing in the URL bar, you can start typing the website name, hit tab to bring up the suggested website and then type your search query. It's super intuitive and bangs are not exactly the same - especially if you have to memorize the bangs for each website.
Also it's kinda convenient to not have to rely on another search engine to hopefully have the page you're looking for indexed when you can just go directly to the site you wanted to search
if i already have a tab open or open a new tab and use alt+home or my custom shortcut which is ctrl+space when the new page opens to google it no longer lets me type in the search box it now keeps the cursor in the address bar for some reason. It has never done that before the last update.
using ctrl+space to go to google and type "whatever im searching for" has been just something i've done for over a decade and now it has changed.
I'm not shortcutting to google to type in a new address, if you know what i mean. I'm at google to do a search. just wondering why it got changed in the last update or just something that got overlooked.
thanks for responding, J
@hprmedina Yes, I have experienced this before. For me it's usually when I mis-type a URL. I go to the network error page. Then chrome does what it usually does and tries to reload the page after a couple of seconds, usually while I am in the middle of correcting the mistake in the address bar. very annoying.
