Vivaldi Backup | Reset + Extra Steps
I'm sadly posting this using brave 😞 - whose sync is also inferior to chrome, but at least it's not chrome.
I'd love to be able to switch between "people" using a shortcut, as I did in chrome, and have the browser automatically switch to (or open new-) that window, like chrome does.
This has nothing to do with the pinned taskbar shortcut, that one works just fine. There are no issues with the shortcut I pinned myself. It only happens when changing profiles inside the browser.
You could have read my post before answering.
@LonM Yes, I am talking about different profiles.
Unfortunately, import/export bookmarks does not work well since it has no function to select individual (specific) bookmarks and folders.
For example, I want to move all YouTube bookmarks to another profile without touching other bookmarks.
Also very eager to see this functionality.
I normally open a combination of 3 user profiles (personal, work, development) using Alfred on macOS. Since switching from Firefox (felt slow) to Vivaldi, I haven't been able to get the window-IDs / process-IDs of active user profiles programmatically and switch between them—but a simple menu shortcut or hotkey would make this easy!
Already planned, but no timeline.
Of cause, I'm going to ask that you consider putting forward a timeline.
I would also like to re-iterate some of the features being requested:
Openness, in the sense an external application or event may trigger a macro or talk to an API.
Security the counter point to expressiveness and ease of use but a challenge to allow real power to be released safely.
Simplicity a low entry barrier for new users and developers.
Expressiveness, tools that don't get in your way and meet your needs. The ability to shoot yourself in the foot is very different to getting shot in the foot by a misfire.
Distribution, the ability to create a macro once and re-use it elsewhere..
Lastly I'd ask that in this endeavour Vivaldi is made the standard and model for front end macros.
In the vein of repetition, I will say that I believe a feature set like this would put Vivaldi in front of a whole set of new users.
This feature is now available in vivaldi 3.4 from the profile manager menu - make sure to not delete the image file you choose from disk. I suggest moving it to your profile folder first. https://vivaldi.com/blog/vivaldi-3-4-desktop/
