I'm surprised this was an issue three years ago and that there's been no progress on what's literally just an "add bold to date header" fix.
And it's not just a dark theme problem. Here's a comparison between the history sidebar and vivaldi://history/. It's so bad and so easy to fix, I imagine.
@GenXstarX is right, if we have a menu for bookmarks we should also have one for history. Or at least having the option to display it.
The advantage of such menu is it's faster to get a recent visited page.
@Pesala To me it's more of a principle. I don't see the sense of saving something I don't want or need.
Mod Edit: Typo corrected. To edit your own posts, use the three vertical dots icon at bottom right of each post.
I agree that this is a possible security hole. Someone could sit at your computer and see your recent tabs in seconds. Having the option to at least disable the icon so it requires going into menus for those concerned is a very easy way to accommodate those who don't want this exposed without much work. Certainly the option to not have everything you have done viewable with a single click (or midclick) is not a huge ask.
More granular history control options would be good too. The current options seem to be keep everything for a designated time, then discard everything without any kind of data type granularity, ie it might be good to keep browsing history for a while but remove download history at the end of every session unless incomplete.
@becm Never understood, why needed to store history.:) Who care what i browsed at past week at 11:34? 🙂
But i accept, maybe somebody needs for this.
Storing the search archive similar. Why? But if you can manage in Settings, OK.
Good solution in Vivaldi
Set the history to Session Only, if they not delete my typed links too. 🙂
(for this reason I need to use to set Forever)
