@pesala I edited my previous post. Based on your answer it didn't seem to be clear enough. The right click would be a right click anywhere on the tile you want to close (no need to go on the tab bar of course - otherwise it wouldn't have any added value)
Edit : and added a new screenshot on the original post
What about something similar to the touchscreen right click feature, where you press an element, tap with second finger and lift both to right click?
The idea is that there's a toggle, similar to alt+gestures, where if you touch the touchpad/trackpad and then touch with the second finger, it registers movement like alt+mouse movement? Another setting to change delay could be used for users to fine tune sensitivity.
Benefits of this approach:
Uses existing functionality
Allows touchscreen users to use gestures without a keyboard
Easier use of gestures for trackpad users
Allows custom gestures, which is better than just creating functionality just for history forward/back
Allows forward/back gestures even when zoomed in and not on the edges of the page, which is a flaw of the normal implementation
By implementing the suggested setting for setting finger delay to differentiate between scrolling up and down and an up/down gesture, I don't have any drawbacks that I can list. The only concern is that trackpads might not give the required information or just make the mouse jump from finger to finger, causing the idea to fail.
Up voted - I want to mimic Chromes keyboard+mouse shortcut for opening new tabs:
Shift+click = open in new window
Ctrl+Shift+click = open in new tab and focus that tab
In Vivaldi these actions are swapped
For someone new to Vivaldi coming from Chrome their habits will need to be re-learned, it should be pretty easy to allow users to re-assign these.
@DeeOhhEff said in Option to Delete Selected Text Using the Mouse:
Some day, you programmers May appreciate the need for this feature.
That is unfair. Just because the developers are young and healthy (and that's not known) it does not mean that they don't care about accessibility issues. One poor guy has only one wheel on his bike.
Of some 1,437 feature requests, this one has just two votes, while others with over 100 are still waiting to be fixed. The Vivaldi Team is small (15 developers), and they have to prioritise on fixing bugs first, then implementing the long-promised email-client and mobile browser, so adding features comes only after those two.
I always suggest workarounds if possible, because some features may take years to implement. It may be frustrating, but there it is. The business is not making money yet.
@pesala said in Middle click -focus new tab?:
@bluet I lost count of how many times I saw this request, but there's already so many easy ways to open a link in a new foreground tab.
Right-click, open new tab
Mouse gesture over the link (I use GestureDown for background tab because that's what I usually want for opening several links on a page. I use GestureDown, GestureUp to open a link in a new foreground tab)
Left-click is also fine. Even if it opens the link in the same tab, I often use that method, read the tab or copy what I want, then GestureBack to revert to the previous page in the same tab.
Thanks for all the suggestions! I knew about some of those. The mouse gesture works best for me. I like opening links without using keyboard. Thats me. The best way though would be ...... middle click! One click / one move. But I can live with two I suppose. A click and a little flick of the wrist.
