@ayespy said in Feature parity with desktop?:
@treego I think a lot of people would be happy with something/anything on iOS. Apple does everything they can to discourage that, but I think Vivaldi may yet get it done.
Thank you, @Ayespy ! 🙂
Maybe I am misunderstanding your issue, but you can open the number of background tabs you want while remaining focused on your main webpage, once you have opened in background every link you need touch the button with the number of open tabs, close the "current tab" - which will be the one already in focus - and browse the rest from there.
My issue is that there is no option to open a link in a private background tab when you are not in the private section of the browser (FF lets you do that)
I would add that the overlay confuses a lot: every time i open the panels, i have to look for the close button later. I think it is a fail design, the open/close panel button should be in the same place. Maybe it is not a big deal if you have the buttons on top, but when you unfold the panels on botton, it makes non sense to go up to fold it again.
It should behave like in the desktop: overlaying only the page space, conserving the tabs and bars without modification.
This also happens to me, I also use the dark theme/mode. If you switch to the light theme (for the browser, not the webpages), you will see that it initially switched to red (the Vivaldi default) and then to whatever the page theme is. In the dark theme, it switches to white (presumable the Vivaldi "default" on dark themes) and then switches to the page's colouring which is not used under the dark theme, so it's always black. This results in a "flashing" effect.
please give an opportunity to remove these accent colors
the ability to hide the bookmark button, the icon is bad, uninformative
remove the vivaldi logo from the menu icon
all of these icons are inconsistent with each other due to thickness and style. looks ugly
The issue is still present today: when closing a tab, a toast appears at the bottom saying "Closed My Tab Name". When this toast is visible, Google GBoard's tap-to-search doesn't work, and when the toast disappears, if the user is typing in the address bar, then the field will lose focus and lose everything that was typed, and the keyboard will be closed. This is annoying when you want to continue browsing to a different website right after closing the previous one.
It also happens with an external physical keyboard, so it may be unrelated to GBoard per se. I haven't yet tested with another virtual keyboard.

@Ayespy, I appreciate this remark, even if it comes across a little argumentative and as if against prioritizing the implementation of extensions, to which this topic is dedicated to. I don't think this was your intent.
Sync is lovely and I care about sync too (to a degree), but what I care about more is convenience and functionality, which is why I switched from Chrome to Kiwi as soon as I learned about it and from Chrome to Vivaldi on desktop earlier this month, because Chrome has been continuously and unreasonably removing the customization flags and stifling user power and convenience, and whether intentionally or not is of no matter to me because why chose anything less than the most convenient browser option in availability. So I gave up on its sync and I gave up on it being the main software in my everyday use. And I might do the same with Kiwi in favor of Vivaldi, same as might other users who want sync AND extensions, and are currently using other options.
Apologies for the lengthy nature of this reply, feel passionately on the matter.
There is a setting called "Show Search Engine Suggestion" under "General". If you disable that the search engine selection bar goes away.
You can't open it by tapping the search engine icon, but I do think that's a great idea. 🙂
