Features requests for 1.4


  • Moderator

    You have the option to open newtab in whatever page you'd like - even a local html file, but that's the extent of newtab options for now.



  • I would like to request support for android apps using ARc in Vivaldi, if we can add it as a feature in Vivaldi instead of an add-on, make it easy to use, you just install vivaldi or portable, and then you can run all android apps,

    i think people would really like that and more people will use vivaldi as their browser.

  • Drag & drop file to Main window to Open it;

    A Local file path can be used when Strat new Tab



  • I don't like Vivaldi's own SpeedDial and I'm using FVD Speed Dial instead. But on opening a NewTab cursor is not focused into the URL bar. It's annoying that I have to press F8 every time. I've tried the Speed Dial2 extension as well, behaviour is the same. Please fix it.



  • @ztm2000:

    Please fix it.

    I don't think that's how it works. If an extension is not working right, I think the extension authors have to fix it, though I might be wrong. Do these extensions focus the URL field in Chrome?

    @ Hanrui You can already set a local HTML page as your new page tab in settings,

    Drag and drop of an HTML file to the Vivaldi window will open it.

  • Administrator: pls erase my post in "all plataform" place, i didnt see this one rsrs…thx...

    Hi everyone...im new here!

    Using vivaldi and loving it...but i think it should have 3 features im missing a lot...

    The first one, is a restore session option, after a crash...mine does not crash yet (using just a week), but we know all browser sometime will crash...and at this time, i dont wanna lose all my opened tabs rsrsr...

    The another request i wanna made is hide the tab if is just one opened. I had this option in firefox (does not remember if is native or extension) and i really like, should have here too.

    The last request is in tittle bar, i can search for some word WITHOUT using the shortcut word (as a example, "d" for duckduckgo). its really annoyng have to put a "d" or "g" before type the world.

    Thanx for all, about the rest of the browser, congratulations, its very cool.



  • Adm: i made another topic in "all plataform" place, pls erase that on rsrs :silly:

  • Whenever you launch M3 Email client, do we get a notification in Action Center in WIndows 10 for new emails? I would like to be notified of new emails just like the built in mail app in Windows 10, because the app notification is full of bugs and I rarely get notifications.



  • 感谢制作团队!但是我没有看到链接、地址栏和搜索栏新标签页打开,难道不考虑这个功能吗?

    Please post in English, or provide a translation.

    Thanks for the production team! But I do not see the link, the address bar and search bar to open a new tab, do not consider this feature?

    Shift + Click on a link, Alt + Enter on the address bar or search bar.



  • Suggestion for

    Built-in SpeedReader

    whereby

    text can be highlighted and made to be read fast via selection

    thanks ^^



  • @TbGbe:

    @shaggy:

    Keyboard
    -make possible to copy website URL with keyboard shortcut (i.e. CTRL+";")

    Workaround - Two step keyboard F8 Ctrl-C

    @shaggy:

    Context meny
    -add option "Copy URL" in meny during right click

    Workaround - (context menu)
    On a link - Copy Link Address
    On address bar (two stage) Select All; Copy

    In opera 12 as well as Vivaldi I intend to do not use Address bar -> hide it (to reduce space).
    So in when I want to do quick adress copy I rather to use keyboard shortcut (to be more efficent and not to do many clicks and things which put me out of context)



  • When horizontal main menu is showing, would like to have drop down menus change as cursor moves over each heading.

    Would be nice to have a selection under File menu to email a link from default email program (as Firefox does)



  • Well, there are two features I'd like to request. Personally, I think one of them, although not extremely important, would be quite nice to have for most users. The other one I don't know if it would be practical or not and if people were going to use it, but hey, it's just a suggestion after all.

    1. Add a theming option to darken the accent color.

    • This feature is available for when the window is on the background, but I think it would be really good to have it for normal use. I love the option that allows the color to change based on the website, but some of them are just too… bright. And if I open the Settings pop-up, the color gets a little bit more dark and that solves everything, it looks beautiful! And on already dark colors the change doesn't bother me at all. So please, consider this a possibility.

    2. Have an option to automatically group tabs from the same URL.

    • Now, I know we can group them manually, but I also think it would be quite nice to have it done automatically (as an opt-in option, of course), just like what happens with softwares on the Windows taskbar, for example. I don't know if it'd be practical to do, as I said, and it's probably not important. But to me, it looks like a good idea and I'd appreciate it.

    Thank you for this amazing project!



  • Forgive me if these were mentioned before,

    1. A way to sign in with google username to transport bookmarks from browser to browser. (Not even sure if this is possible)
    2. Zoom can be set to independent windows rather than globally zoomed for all tabs.
    3. Zoom percent similar to chrome.

    If I could ask for only one new feature in Vivaldi 1.4, it would be to add "Bookmarks" to the macOS menu bar. I have a lot of bookmarks (managed in and imported from Safari) and ALL can be accessed effortlessly in other browsers with a single click from the Bookmarks menu. Bookmark navigation in Vivaldi is extremely tedious by comparison.

    (If you've withheld this feature because of favicon rendering glitches in the menus, it's not a bug in your code. This glitch has been around since the pre-release Yosemite betas; it affects all browsers (including Safari) yet Apple either can't or won't fix it.)

    Thanks!



  • I hear that Google may remove support to the "Web apps" from the Chrome.

    That is great opportunity for get more users to Vivaldi, if just you guys implement this feature back to Vivaldi, i dont meant that you needed to make "app stores" or something like that silly thing, but add a feature where users can make any webpage / web app a Window to their desktop.

    In Chrome there is a option for that in the menu (add to desktop), and then it asks do you want to run it as a window (without browser components on it).

    I have almost all of my desktop applications like that, Twitterfeed, Gmail, Music services and so on, and im now a Chrome user (every platform), but if Vivaldi add this feature to the browser, i promise that i make the switch 🙂



  • Vivaldi should provide better, immediate visual feedback when a page is loading. Sometimes there is no visual indication that the browser is working on anything, even though it is. Chrome solves this by changing the favicon in the tab to a rotating circle as soon as a link is activated. Vivaldi sometimes feels sluggish even though it is actually faster than Chrome, because of this.



  • @Team_Vivaldi:

    A few insights about what the team is currently working on (see comments next to the features).

    Frequent requests:
    17. Sync -> under development

    Hi,

    I don't know if this has been requested yet. But I hope you could provide a syncing feature not only to your own servers, but with the possibility to sync to a webdav share?
    That way we can use our own webdav server (owncloud, seafile, …) and have our data on our own servers.

    thanks,
    Stijn



  • Separators in the bookmark manager would be nice. I like to visually split my huge bookmark collection.
