Sorry, I have caused misunderstanding. I do not want to do a search within the URL. I want to pick words (highlight them) which are part of the URL an start a websearch for them. Just like one can highlight any text on a webpage and then choose "search for [text]" in right click context menu.
We already got a similiar context menu in address bar. But this one does only contain "copy", "insert", "insert notice" and so on. Not "search for". I know that this a very specific request, but it does appear to be very easy to implement. Just use show the same context menu when rightclicking on text in addressbar as is currently shown when rightlicking on text anywhere else.
Nowadays I have to mark the text I want, copy it to clipboard, and paste it to a searchfield somewhere else (which I have to open first). That's uncomfortable especially if one does not want to move between mouse and keyboard.
edit: I corrected thread title to avoid future misunderstandings
@steffie said in Firefox-style Zoom Buttons on the Address Bar:
An alternative concept, for anyone so inclined, is to control page zoom via mouse gestures,
I don't use mouse gestures. Wonder is it practical for zooming...
The better concept I think is using some kind of mouse combo :
side_button_1 + Scroll-wheel
side_button_2 + Scroll-wheel
RMB + Scroll-wheel
Right now I'm using side_button_1 + Scroll-wheel for zooming (thanks to my mouse software tool) and it's great, but RMB + Scroll-wheel combo would be even better =))
thus having no negative impact on Status Bar or Address Bar
Well, zoom buttons are optional, e.g. in Firefox you can enable them (d&d) via customization menu. They are disabled by default.
The only reason I'm using Status Bar in Vivaldi is to know my current zoom level 🙂
Page tiling button is also useful, there is a Tab context menu for that.
@derday I didn't design it, don't tell me... Although, I imagine that creating a feature that would be able to determine which parts of the URL are actually necessary (like the timestamp of a video) and which are just some garbage that can be thrown away (like the referrals) would take a tremendous amount of work, not to mention that it would probably have to use some sort of deep learning technology to work properly...
@becm Never understood, why needed to store history.:) Who care what i browsed at past week at 11:34? 🙂
But i accept, maybe somebody needs for this.
Storing the search archive similar. Why? But if you can manage in Settings, OK.
Good solution in Vivaldi
Set the history to Session Only, if they not delete my typed links too. 🙂
(for this reason I need to use to set Forever)
Yes, just this, it only works "click" on the search engine (open in same tab).
I wish there was a "Shift + click" on the search engine icon. to open 'the search' on another tab.
I do not know if this is feasible to do in the programming code.
@hentioe said in Hide Scheme (http/https) based on displaying the full address:
Query parameters are sometimes as important as paths.
100% ACK to that sentence because a hacked website might only hand out the malicious content on special query parameters or paths. Additionally some CMS use only query parameters to compile the content.
Upvoted because http and https don't say anything about the security of a page and nothing about mixed content pages. The security lock is way more informative in that regard.
Other schemes like file: or data: etc should not be hidden though.
Vivaldi has a real opportunity here to innovate in a big way with such a simple design change.
For example. Something like this would not work anymore?
Why? Because the full domain would be shown instead of the full URL. This is exactly the sort of thing the URL address bar can prevent with this. Vivaldi can then advertise as a feature the new anti phishing address bar.
