It is planned that eventually vivaldi mail will be able to do this. The idea is that the mail will be independent of the profile. But it will take a lot more work from the developers to get to that stage.
Yeah, this is awful.
Why does this browser not close tabs when it is removed from the active apps list?
Why do I have to manually close tabs?
This make no sense at all, all other browser apps start up clean but Vivaldi has 99 tabs opened all the time even if I haven't used it for a month. This is unworkable.
@bonetone I generally agree, but I do see a distinction here which you seem to not recognize. For me, "swipe-action" and "gesture" are really two separate things and should be treated differently. I'll try to explain:
Part of "standard UI" - swipe action over given element does one specific thing (or one of given set of things) - like "clicking" or "taping" on a button, it just does what the button does.
as such it "comes" with the new installation and works right away
It's tied to the given element (button, bar...) and can be activated only from this element
Is simple (preferably just a single one direction swipe), so it is easy to execute and easy to find by trial-error learning approach
Part of personalized UI (or fully adjustable UI) - specific gesture can be assigned to anything what specific user prefers
as such it must be set up (or synced or learned, if you use "default") by the user before it can be used
Is executable "anywhere" (...with reasonable limitations, like "anywhere over the page space, outside of other control elements")
might be as complex as user wishes it to be in both number of moves and their directions
I really believe these two things should be treated separately, since they fill a different function and (some, many?) users will treat them differently. Both of these are useful, though, it's just they fill a different purpose.
Regarding swipe-actions: I do think that using swipe-actions everywhere is a good idea, because it allows to get more options from less UI elements, keeping the app simple and streamlined. Their usage is tight to the UI itself, though.
For example I would much appreciate to have just one "GENERAL TABS" button in the center of the bottom bar. This buttom could have following functions:
TAP: shows tab overview
swipe-UP: shows speed dials
swipe-RIGHT (=from center of bottom bar, to right) - goes to next tab
swipe-LEFT (=...) - goes to the previous tab
swiping from left side of the bottom bar (left from TABS button) to right = forward
swiping from right side of the bottom bar to left = backwards
...this way you can have way less buttons in the bottom bar with way more actions which can be triggered from this bar. But it is closely tight to how the bottom bar is being organized.
(Of course it would be great to have the option to personalize ALL of this, but... I'd suggest to stay down on the ground 😃 )
That's somewhat encouraging, as I do from time to time forget that vivaldi doesn't have the huge technical pool of software developer's like some of the major software companies do, but they seemly end up with a better all around offering.
@vagrod Thanks for sharing your request. Sync will include Themes sometimes in the future. We have it in our pipeline. 😉
I'm moving your request from Sync category to Feature requests / Themes so that more people can vote for it. 🙂
Firefox has rudimentary themeing where you can apply an image / texture as a background on the main toolbar. It would be nice if vivaldi could plug into this, then they could have access to that whole library from the get go. If not, simple choosing of icon bg/fg colours would suffice.
@ayespy I don't know how the data is structured on the sync server, but adding selective sync might not be too difficult. Different installations of Vivaldi could, in theory, simply only request (or update) part of the data on the server.
@Pesala said in Vivaldi SVG Icons:
Moved to the Feature Requests forum
I find the array of different sized icons with different backgrounds rather ugly. If a SVG icon for Vivaldi would look good, I would be in favour of it, but it's not going to solve the problem of the mismatching icons from other software.
SVG Icons for Themes, Toolbars, and Panels would be more useful.
Most major browsers and some other apps has already added SVG icons so now it starts to look good. So it would be great if Vivaldi added an SVG icon too.
Also I suggest to add "/ Windows 10 Icons / Windows 8 Icons / Windows Metro Icons" to the title of this thread to help users find it. I found this thread only after several search queries
@xandork The topic is tagged as PIPELINE, which is one step closer than NICE TO HAVE, but it is not yet IN PROGRESS.
With 4,477 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.
"Bookmarks clean up" runs but it is not deleting duplicates. Instead it buts them into folders named Trash. I can see any way to empty the trash folder. I can't see any folders named Trash in Vivaldi's Bookmark Manager, just in Bookmarks clean up.
