Mods can be very non-standard and can break the browser in ways that not even extensions can. I think having a low barrier of entry would be good to make sure that users understand what is involved (so a mod storefront in the vein of the extension web store wouldn't be a good idea - besides the forum does a decent job of that anyway, it would be a lot of work to re-implement).
That said, a way to manage mods once they are installed could be nice. I made such a request here https://forum.vivaldi.net/post/188805
@ayespy Agree, but I don't argue technical accuracy of the title here, just suggesting what I think would help users find the thread. If left to right is not inclusive enough 🙂 we could even add top to bottom but guess that leaves out arabic speakers 🙂 however it is my opinion it's good enough if it helps even a tiny percentage of users who wouldn't think to mention click order in search.
@pesala So join this two topics to two checkboxes (and one of current remove):
Show bookmarks bar on new tab
Show bookmarks bar when not in new tab
Maybe can be one more:
Show bookmarks bar on vivaldi:// and chrome:// pages
@pesala Just tested this in Chrome and it seems larger than it used to be, I wonder if there was a change there. Seems a "line" is just a really huge unit of measurement now. Would still be nice to tune that parameter. Thanks for the tip.
@ayespy That's what I meant to say. I want a Vivaldi which is both simple/basic for newbies and configurable for those who want total control of their browser. Me? I somewhere in the middle. As you stated so well...a balance.
Back to the original topic. I think the OP wants to have the ability to control when sync happens. The every 20 minutes is fine for me. However the OP wants to lessen the CPU usage by choosing when sync happens. I would like to see the option to have sync happen every hour, two hours or any amount of hours the user selects. Or having a button which says "sync now".
@MasterLeo29 That's a nice bit of script Leo. I hope the Devs see it and add it, or similar, to the core. Saves messing about on new installs.
And also hopefully they can add a CheckBox to enable/disable it in Settings: Bookmarks.
I use TrayIt! for this. You can press the minimize button on every window and hold the shift key and that window will be minimized to the system tray. It also can be configured to always minimize some window to the tray.
However, it would be nice if this functionality was built into Vivaldi. Then I would not need a separate application.
This is partially implemented, but not for every setting, which is quite annoying.
I took this particular example, as the change that occurs after turning on "extension toggle" is pretty obvious - a button appears that you can press to find out what it does.
The other one which doesn't have a tooltip, copy and cut encoded address, is much less obvious and would actually require an explanation.
