Configurable top-level domain expansion



  • I see this is something that can be changed in the Address Bar Settings. But would someone be kind enough to explain just what this does? Thank you!



  • @dac1
    It some kind of auto complete.
    For example, the default there is com, isn't it?
    Now go to address bar enter vivaldi then press CTRL+ENTER. The com will placed as suffix and our browser will go to vivaldi.com.



  • @dLeon Thanks! I have been looking for this feature and did not know it was already baked in. Appreciate the reply.



  • Its description says:

    Separate multiple values by space or comma.

    But how to get the other values to work?
    Ctrl+Enter only triggers the 1st one.
    I thought there would be a list to select from...



  • @vias
    I think, the current way to achieve it currently weird at best.

    I had these set;
    com net edu

    When I visit vivaldi.com, Vivaldi browser will load the page. I need to wait until it finish. Make sure focus on Address Bar, hit Ctrl+Enter, .com become .net. In this case, I landed to forum.vivaldi.net as vivaldi.net seem linked to it. Hit Ctrl+Enter again, .netbecome .edu which lead to no where.

    Personally, I don't think "Real world use" above will be used at all by common user. How many famous sites has multiple Top Level Domain?

    I thought there would be a list to select from...

    That would be more comfortable.

    Not acceptable if it's a finished design.
    Don't see the usefulness.

    @Vivaldi-Moderators
    Is this another known issue?

    What do you think is a issue? Please explain.



  • @Gwen-Dragon
    Please read the whole thread and test this feature.
    dLeon and I think it should be something like Auto Complete (with a list to select from).
    We (at least I) don't think the behavior at the moment is just as expected.

    No, it is not an issue.
    Expanding with Ctrl+Enter is designed like this.

    But if you think it is a bug, please report the issue to the developers to check and fix it.
