I dont want to hijack topics from other people, so I will write it here.
First want to say I dont think any Vivaldi User should be forced to use any feature(s) I mention here. If they are by chance even under consideration for new versions, if other Users asked for them, etc...
They can allways be optional, as one new option in Settings. Even better as power User option(s) hidden under "vivaldi://flags".
Thank you for this nice browser, it is something very special and unique.
Using it for one week now. Even managed to make my wife like it, second standalone installation. She was using this dead horse Firefox all the time. It is hopelessly slow, with no addons installed.
So here are some thoughts:
Web Panel - it would be usefull to have an Option for specific Web Panels to click on any link and open site in bigger window at the right. Logic is Web Panel is mostly as quick preview of situation, not to spend longer time reading articles there in this narrow space. Option to open link in new tab is there, so it is not so critical, it would be nice to have Option to click and page is open at the right automatically. Sorry if I missed it somewhere in Settings.
File size and number of files notificator in web address field. It would be maybe better to have them visible after Page is finished loading. Or as some Option in Settings to activate it, as optional.
Suggestions for Speed dial. (Based on surfing and User habbits)
Hover over links - Show whole web address as overlay, left-bottom corner. So we can disable bottom status bar and get more space for website content.
Dockning od Developer Tools & mobile preview. So I can ditch Chrome at whole. I see you finished it and comes in next version(s).
Option to rearange order od Web Panels (websites). Drag and drop, or similar.
Will write later more if I find something more.
I like option to click on any search field and it automatically makes new search engine for Vivaldi. Works well with any torrent search site I tried.
Of course there are some other. But I see they are mentioned many times here at forum, and you are working on it. Custom Speed Dial thumbnails, chose between several thumbnails, etc...
@Stagger_Lee The Status bar overlay is already available in Settings, Appearance, Status Bar.
Most of the rest is already in the Feature Requests thread..
Point Web Panel
Shift+Click, Ctrl+Click, Middle+Click, & Context Menu already there. The links will open in new tab of your choice.
Point File size and number of files notificator in web address field
custom.cssto do that;
Point Suggestions for Speed dial
OK, this new request. Weird actually, usually people don't want other people could see it.
Point Hover over links
@Pesala already mentioned where to find it.
Point Dockning od Developer Tools

Point Option to rearange order od Web Panels
Already requested in (maybe multiple times) https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/14250/feature-requests-for-1-8-1-9. Please vote for them, I did.
While at it, all request currently go there;
Be warn though, not all will arrive at once nor soon.
Thank you. I know how it goes with feature requests and time.
Regarding Web Panels and clicking on links. Think you missunderstand me. I asked for option "Open link in current (opened) Tab", at the right of Web Panel sidebar. To avoid opening to many tabs when right side already has one tab opened and can be used for switching Articles.
And in connection with it leave Web Panel alone, to stay on say Blog list of Articles. (Home). There is no point to display same Artcile inside Web Panel and right opened Tab.

I see. That's interesting.
Like bookmark on one click option.
You could drag link & drop it to tab of your choice, to address bar or to page. I have web paneled page and tabs bar on same side. So I could do that drop to tab pretty quick.
Still, I won't stop you if you want to request it.
- I think we need some kind of control over right click context menu items.
It is pretty wild right now, 11 items just for image.
Those image right click items should maybe be inside one subitem, and grouped there. It is not as one use it often anyway, so not so big deal if one additional click is needed.
Problem is it is showing on forums and social networks where URLs, links are often shown via small icon.
OK, I see now phpBB default theme doesnt have this problem, some other forum themes has.

This is in the making - so there is just a need for a little patience ^^
