The default being Vivaldi adds the following CSS directly onto all links upon click: outline-width: 0px !important; user-select: auto !important is bad.
This is unexpected and inconsistent from all other browsers. It's impossible for a website to override this. This means a website's CSS is treated slightly differently here than any other browser.
Please please stay consistent by default. There is value in allowing user-select: none; on anchor texts, it can improve the user experience. There is even more value in staying consistent with other browsers and web standards. And a browser changing how CSS works is a very slippery precedent to set.
I understand the intended value is to give users more control over their browsing experience, but the value of this feature is arguably minor, and the negative factor being the inconsistency and standards issues mentioned above is much worse than the positives this feature brings by being a default.
I'd strongly propose that Allow Text Selection in Links be disabled by default. Let's not go back to a time where websites have to expect differences between browsers.
@Darthagnon This seems to be the same request as Create Start Page Folders by Drag and Drop
Currently, one can drag and drop bookmarks into or out of speed dial folders by using the Bookmarks Panel, even if Drag and Drop reordering of the Start Page is disabled in Settings, Start Page.
@whane I linked to the wrong thread.
Drag Configurable Bookmarks Bar Folder menus is the feature that you want.
Since the Bookmarks Toolbar was first introduced there have been requests/demands for easy editing, but it we are told that it takes too much work.
@lonm great thanks. Yes I tried and it will really open these files. thanks for clarifying. Haven't done this file>open thing in Chrome 'coz I always thought this should be something intuitive (don't blame me lol). Hope a drag and drop feature will be added to vivaldi real soon.
@ozoratsubasa This is already possible.

Drag the Tab Thumbnail and drop it onto the tab bar
For tab stacks of 2-5 tabs it's also possible by using the tab selectors if the popup thumbnails are not displayed, but it becomes difficult to do with larger tab stacks.
@TuTAH It is sad that we see so many posts like yours from new users who assume that their pet issue is the most important thing demanding the developers' attention.
With 5,351 feature requests, and a small team, those needed by few users or difficult to implement may have to wait for a long time. Wherever you see that a feature is tagged as In Progress, it may get done this year rather than next.
This old request with 163 upvotes is not tagged, but it is not hard to work around.
Copying text to a note in the Developers Tools is apparently already possible.
The Opera 50 method of simply dragging and dropping the tab onto the current page is the right way to do this.
While you're waiting, just assign a shortcut such as Shift+F11 to "Detach Tab."
Alternatively, assign a mouse gesture. I recommend one that is not too easy to do accidentally, e.g. GestureDown, GestureRight, GestureUp.
