Suggestions to improve the browser



  • I would make some suggestions to improve this browser.
    Some years ago I moved from Chrome to Maxton because Maxton is faster. Now, Vivaldi is fastest. I want to move to Vivaldi because its speed, custom themes and custom panels position and many more. But there are some elements that are missing so I have to stick with Maxton, for the moment:

    1. The main missing is that there is no synchronizing functions (for bookmarks, for themes, for options, for magic fill, for passwords and for extensions). Maxton has all of this ! I have many computers, home, laptop, work and synchronizing is an extraordinary benefit. This is the main missing that I remain with Maxton.

    2. Minor problems:

    • you cannot change the order of folders in quick access window using drag and drop
    • you cannot put a link for those quick access links and different caption (I cannot have simple GOOGLE for google.com and TRANSLATE for google translate, MAPS for google maps and so on).
    • you have not an options to not use a capture image of the selected site. Maxton has the option to use caption text as image.
    • Maxton has a better mode to assign links to quick access: form currently open pages, form favorites, form most visited pages, from applications, from popular pages.
    • Bookmarks bar shortcut for links has the same white icon, not the favicon of the used site. If you want to use "Only icon" you have many icons alike, that is a problem !

    Any way, this is not a critique but an help to improve this excellent browser, to be the best in all aspects.
    Thank you very much for Vivaldi !



  • @Tratak Most of this is already in the Feature Requests thread.. Read the thread, and if you don't find what you want, add one post for each feature request.

    It's been in the making for a while now. That is a big feature, it requires a lot of work before it'll be made available for all users.

    What do you mean by "quick access window"? If by that you mean the Speed Dial page, then changing the order of items with drag&drop works perfectly fine - at least here on 1.7.735.46 (32-bit) on Windows 10 x64/x86.

    Again, if we're talking about the Speed Dial page, then renaming SD items works perfectly fine here on 1.7.735.46 (32-bit) on Windows 10 x64/x86. You need to confirm changes by pressing the [ENTER] key, but you can also change the captions through the bookmark page.

    I can't confirm that here on 1.7.735.46 (32-bit) on Windows 10 x64/x86. When the page is visited at least once, its favicon (if there is one) will show up on the Bookmarks Bar.



  • @pafflick

    About: ”you cannot change the order of folders in quick access window using drag and drop”
    There are two types of folders in the SD. One is type in the black band from the top - here you cannot move with drag and drop, other type is near the links - here you can move.

    All others problems were in deed false problems.

    Thank you and sorry !



  • @Tratak Oh, so you were talking about the navigation bar. I didn't think of that since I don't even use that and thus hardly pay any attention to it. If I'm not mistaken, @Pesala has already suggested you to try ordering them by renaming them, since they seem to be sorted alphabetically. Other than that, I'm glad you were able to resolve the rest of your issues. 👍
