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.
@Pesala Yes, dropping the link on the tab of the tile is the only way to do this
However, as a user of the really old Firefox (pre-57) TileTabs, I really love the ability to just drop the link anywhere in the page to be replaced. It is VERY much faster than finding the tab for the tile, especially as I prefer to use CLOSED accordion tabs at all times.
Regarding super-drag-n-drop, I think I voted for that one too, but that request has a ton of features that are just not part of my workflow, nor is this request an explicit part of it. I will re-read it to be sure. (Update: that one is all about opening stuff in new panes. Not at all like this one)
This one is clean and simple: (Note also, this is FireFox's normal behavior)
If a user drops a link (or shortcut) anywhere in a pane, then load the link in the pane that got the drop. Done.
@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.
@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.
This is absolutely necessary and I am amazed it isn't a default feature. Slows me down so much when I have to open file explorer every time to drag and drop a file, when in other browsers I can just drag from the browser downloads.
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.
