Vimium (LinkHints.activateModeToOpenInNewForegroundTab)

  • This Vimium command name LinkHints.activateModeToOpenInNewForegroundTab really explanatory. While in other Chromium based browsers link does open in new tab, Vivaldi instead open link in new window.

    My spec:
    Linux Debian sid
    Vivaldi 1.5.658.44 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
    Vimium 1.57

    How does Vimium implement this command?

  • Oh, you're fast. I'm not sure about your replied question. If your asking about Vimium internal API, then I must say I don't know (yet). It something I just cross today when I playing with it with 3 Chromium based browsers.

    Vimium available commands is what listed under "Show available commands" in its setting page. They were for custom mapping.
    By default, this specific command is not set to any mappings. So, probably no one ever mention about it in Vivaldi.

    Thanks for fast response.

    Np, yes, I'm wondering what Vimium does under the hood. It must be some form of

    Btw. is Vimium needed when Vivaldi has Quick commands and configurable keyboard shortcuts? What's missing for a complete "Vimaldi"?

  • Nothing wrong with Vivaldi internal configurable shortcuts.
    In spare time, I was practically want to know till what|where|when|why|how Vivaldi break when I slap it with my usual add-ons. Interestingly, it act different with single Vimium command than other Chromium based. Vimium itself 100% work.

    About the test with other add-ons, Vivaldi fail to break on me. Or maybe my chosen usual add-ons too usual or simple.

    Well anyway, I don't think it's really a big deal. But nice to know it happen.

    (...planning other ways to break Vivaldi... evil laugh...)
