Feature request: "select all" button in history
I want to delete every page in history of a particular web site, for example www.sitetodelete.com.
Then I go to History panel, search for "www.sitetodelete.com" and found all URLs to delete.
Now, I can select all items one by one, but it's a long and annoying work...
What about putting a "Select all" button, that automatically select every visible item, resulting from search?
Selecting them one by one isn't needed. You can select all entries by clicking the first, holding shift and clicking the last, or by simply using the ctrl-A / cmd-A shortcut (depending on your operating system).

As luetage said, just select all with shift + click, then delete them. Having fewer buttons is better than having too many.
This is even more true of items on menus. Long menus make it slower to select items. Take a look at the context menu for stacked tabs. There are now 19 items, but still people ask for more.
I know from past experience with Opera, that when we get the option to edit menus, I will remove a lot of the clutter to make room for some extra items that I actually use.
The Opera tab-stack context menu has 9 items and 4 submenus; mine has 7 items and one submenu.
If you still want this button the Feature Requests thread is the right place for it.
@thepisu are you in stable 1.7?
I think the feature @luetage mentioned was fix as soon 1.8 came out or maybe next versions followed.
I remember that Ctrl+A will also select the headers in history page. Which make using "Delete" key doesn't work. But it seem it's working now, I also just realize that.
And, there's "Filter by Site" in Vivaldi in New History Page. It's like Chromium/Chrome arrow drop down in their history page.
