A useless tool
My great great great great great grandparents' neighbour's hairdresser's plumber's accountant's neurosurgeon used to tell stories about something called The Vivaldi Forum Search Tool, but as the story passed down over all the following generations, with nobody ever seeing any actual proof of its existence, we all just came to believe it was one of those urban myths. I expect we'll probably find proof of Bigfoot, Nessie, & Dropbears before we ever see tangible proof of TVFST.
@guigirl same here, I added it manually. I have just set up a new dual boot machine with 2 profiles each and got too annoyed to not say anything. Of course, I would have never noticed if Vivaldi sync would include the search engines.
To quote @omen_20 from the corresponding feature wish Sync search engines:
When freshly installing Vivaldi, the missing search engines and keywords is always surprising.
@saadouamine The problem is that server space and maintaining servers is costly. People expect that their data will not be lost, and typical camera photos nowadays are multiple Mbytes each.
It is not just server space, but bandwidth to upload and download the files.
One can create a blog, and upload media to display on a blog, but the maximum file size is 5 Mbytes.
@zerospam Thats a very good request. It was requested several times and unfortunately it's like nobody cares @Vivaldi staff.
I for example have a main account which i use for Webmail and the Blog plattform, because on Vivaldis blog plattform i can use a seperate alternative username. For the forum it's already my third account to participate and communicate with the users and staff here.
The previous accounts for the forum were active - but to split it up is an annoying thing, so I unfortunately lost the access data. With this behaviour Vivaldi unfortunately marginalizes the community itself. A rich, high-quality account with various options - that would be beneficial for the community to flourish. This wish has been expressed many many times.
@risingstark The one resource that is non-renewable is time. Developers are the minority¹ in a small team at Vivaldi. Most of the feedback is provided via this forum with volunteer Ambassadors and Moderators.
Ideas on how to improve feedback are ten a penny, but there is almost no staff time available to implement any worthwhile system. The forum code also has its limitations.
¹ Actually 22 developers, among a team of 54 including two dogs, who presumably are there just to sniff out the bugs.
