@Acada said in Half sync?:
the switching tabs
I don't think I understand what you mean here?
Sync will work with remote tabs (the ones you have open on other devices), and will show them in the cloud () menu next to the closed tabs menu ().
But it won't actually open tabs in the tab strip for switching.
What caught my eye was Chromium and customisation. I had no idea that a browser could be such a power user tool. There was another article, but wasn't able to find it. The article was something like 'i switched from chrome to vivaldi for ten days and never looked back.'
It's strange because so many folders from my last export are missing. I didn't delete them all. Unless, sometimes I notice Vivaldi will have all my bookmarks from another computer or session under a single bookmark folder. I'll expand some unexpected single folder and it will be the entire book mark directory structure found in another instance of vivaldi. It's unclear to me when they all got removed. Or how many are missing. I went to search for a bookmark about hard drives I know I saved in the last few months but i can't find it.
Maybe the Vivaldi online account could get a bookmark history / trash. That you have to empty that trash seperately. When you have a ton of bookmarks and folders under trash it can be confusing...so you end up deleting them all....bc they can't be hidden. Book mark versioning?
@JohnWJ6969 It's planned, but due to Apple's restrictive policies, it will not be allowed in the Apple Store unless it is completely re-written to use the Apple browser engine designed for iOS. So It won't be available soon.
The Flickr issue varies, and isn't limited to Vivaldi. If you're looking at someone's photostream then the first 5 rows of photos (approximately) will remember where you were, if you scroll much further then it goes back to the last place it does remember - but it does exactly the same on current versions of Opera.
Your second item - there are some pages that will force a top-of-page when they are loaded, so should do that in every browser. If it does it on every long article though that would be a bug. (I don't use Reddit and so can't comment on that.)
...It's not the solution to the original problem (If the extension "Feedbro" is opened in the tab, then the tab icon of Feedbro disappears) but...
...I have found a solution for myself.
This morning I had the idea to set up all my tabs, which are used daily, as webpanels. This includes Feedbro.
So I set up the Feedbro extension as a web panel.
I noticed that Feedbro's webpanel icon remains permanently visible...that makes me very happy, and using Feedbro in the webpanel is just as comfortable as in the tab.
I'd like to point out that you can really set up any website and extensions as a webpanel.
This improves the usability of Vivaldi enormously.
Now I have been using Vivaldi for about 18 months and Vivaldi still has surprises in store for me.
That's great...thanks to the Vivaldi team and all Vivaldi users and Vivaldi Forum members...I'm happy to be part of it.
@jumpsq I suspect it has to with the fact that in chrome (and so vivaldi as well), it tries to do as much as possible in-memory. This means when a tab is closed there's no way to recover it, unlike in regular mode where it may be cached on disk.
I can't say if this is right or wrong behaviour, but I suspect that's the technical reason for it.
