Vivaldi is indeed promising! I have high hopes, as a "refugee" from the Presto-Opera land
15. Add tab-stacking for tab-bar in vertical mode.
16. Add option to disable tab preview when using the tab-bar vertically (display only the title like in horizontal mode).
Yes, please! In addition, when the vertial-mode tab-bar is on the left-hand side of the window, I'd like the page preview displayed to the right of the tab on mouse hover, not to obscure the tabs below or above it.
The vertical tab-bar is very useful, because I often maximize the browser and my monitor is much wider than it's tall so that there is huge waste in the screen real estate on the left- and right-hand sides.
I couldn't disagree more. It's been a year and a half since I had a browser that could display and handle my email smoothly and proficiently right next to the web page window I was working in, and the slowdown to my workflow is STILL being felt. I need a mail panel I can keep open on the left at all times, so bad I can taste it.
If you don't like email in your browser, you can hide it/not use it. I should not be denied an option, just because you can't understand how it's useful.
Absolutely. I am still trying to get used to Thunderbird (I am using Linux/Ubuntu). I can't even see all my inbox from one folder, lots of unnecessary options and so on. Opera Mail had this "one folder for all inbox", simplicity, maillisting and some other benefits. Also, Opera Mail had RSS reader.
Mail Client didn't cause performance issue in Opera if you didn't use it.
