@AzDayton Now that this topic has been moved to Feature Requests, it no longer needs the Feature Request prefix.
I don't like the idea of cluttering the UI with a button for this. Moving the mouse to the top Panel Toolbar would be no more efficient than right-click.
Maybe double-click or long click could toggle the Floating status?
Well, obviously I know the search field can be cleared, otherwise I'd be under the silly impression that the user can only ever do one search in Vivaldi before the search field is irreversibly occupied for the rest of eternity.
I'm basically saying, "We shouldn't have to clear the field before using it", and your response is essentially, "You can clear the field before using it."
As for your hypothetical scenario, it's really hard to judge things like this because people's workflows and browser habits are so idiosyncratic. I can't dismiss the possibility that there are some people who actually like that the search field retains text, but I'm inclined to doubt it. Still, if that is true, it would merely mean that the feature request instead should be to add an option to have the search field clear after changing/closing the panel. That's kinda Vivaldi's whole thing, y'know.
By the way, the find bar as an analogy actually serves my point: it has the good sense to at least highlight the text field automatically, meaning you can type ctrl+f and immediately start typing without having to clear anything.
I know that they are temporary bookmarks and also that you can set them as 'read', but it is always very easy to make a mistake and accidentally delete an item directly from your pending reading list, because there is no final confirmation asked and the delete and 'marked as read' buttons are next to each other.
@TeroBauKoChack Still I do not quite understand the meaning. In my case - I have the sidebar on the right - the search box is directly above this sidebar. And I have the dropdown with about 30 search engines... See screenshot:
What do you mean by
the keywords from a single item in my web panel
What item? Do you refer to SpeedDial as Vivaldi Start Page?
@dude99 right, essentially giving an assessment of how harmful the blocked / unblocked items are? That fits well with my main focus, the added transparency of what Vivaldi itself does when "phoning home"
