Feature requests for 1.9 / 1.10

  • Vivaldi Translator

    @Omen_20 I agree, that Vivaldi needs some work for Web panel favicons. But previously I had the same issue and I've figured out how to keep favicons after restarting Vivaldi. You just need to use correct URLs. Especially the correct protocol (http/https) is important.

    For Twitter I have just tried this URL, and the favicon is not blank after Vivaldi's restart, it's only changing a bit after loading:
    https://mobile.twitter.com/home (mobile version).
    For Medium try https://medium.com/ (mobile version)
    For getpocket - https://getpocket.com/ (mobile version)

    Some other URLs I'm using and have no problem with favicons:
    https://keep.google.com/ (desktop version)
    https://translate.google.com/m/translate (desktop version)
    https://www.youtube.com/ (mobile version)
    https://www.messenger.com/ (desktop version) also see this.

  • I'm using Vivaldi - a few days now, intensively, it's pretty terrific. Like Opera used to be before suddenly turned into anti-Opera.
    The only problem is tab size. Too many tabs - and they shrink until it's almost impossible to hit the tab and not the "close tab" "x", which, of course, does NOT shrink.
    What I'd love is the option to set a minimum tab size - and if there are too many to fit on the screen at that size, they'd scroll, a la Firefox. I don't love tab grouping (although I do like the idea of having the option). I can find work-arounds, but it would be nicer to have a setting. Other people seem to have the same issue - why not introduce the option?
    Let me add in advance - there is no such thing as "a problem with too many tabs." A large number of tabs is a good thing, something I want, it is productive for me. The question is concerns only the range of methods a browser offers for handling them.
    Thanks for your brilliant work!

  • Integration of side notes with IFTTT/Zapier/Microsoft's new svc so can choose what svc want to integrate w/ (e.g., Evernote, Trello, Todoist, a million others), and how to integrate. Ppl love them some IFTTT, would bring in a ton of new users. And save me from using two extra extensions and a newtab page.

    @DamanGoldberg already suggested (/post/125639):

    Export Notes to either of Keep, OneNote, Evernote, PDF, LibreOffice, etc. Also, printing using system dialog without manual Copy/Paste.

  • I think ppl have been clamoring for this for at least a year? Any idea about whether will be implemented/when? Thanks! 🙂

  • Three requests:

    • Main window border -> switch in settings to enable/disable main window border. Working on big screen with multiple windows which has white background ano border is mostly annoying. I know I can enable it by editing css but this is not very comfortable doing on every new release. Also if border is enabled, it is not possible to move window from border (1px space)

    • Fav icons -> imported bookmarks doesn't get favicons, before I firstly visit them

    • Mouse hovering over folders on bookmark bar -> it is needed to click if you want to navigate between different folders on bookmark bar. On Opera mouse hover works.

  • Extensions working on Web Panels

    e.g. Ads blocker, LastPass, etc.

  • Native or native-like horizontal menu

    The horizontal menu bar should be, or at least behave like, native OS menu bars. This is currently not the case, at least on Windows. In a native menu bar, selecting one of the menus and moving the mouse left or right (without clicking) results in navigating through the other menus. In Vivaldi, we need to explicitly click to switch to another menu which is more cumbersome and doesn't match the OS UI.

  • Common button to close tabs

    In classic Opera, disabling the option to "show close button on each tab" would result on a common close button in the standard position for MDI programs.

    Even if Vivaldi has no full-fledged MDI, it would be very useful to have the option to get such a button at the standard position as it takes advantage of muscle memory for those of us who use MDI programs.

    The option could either be implied by "show close button on each tab", like in Classic Opera, or be an explicit separate option.

  • @Omen_20 @RammsteinAM this problem has seemed to fix itself with the latest Snapshot (1.9.811.13), well for me anyway

  • Sortable web panels

    @huy.dinh said in [Feature request] Sortable web panels:

    Doesn't anyone ever feel like they want to sort or shuffle around their web panels, because of some OCD tendencies which demand that a certain panel needs to be above/below another certain one?

    Or is there a not-so-intuitive workaround for this already? "Simple" drag and drop does not work and neither does pressing down some Magic Keys™ whilst trying to drag and drop web panels. 😢

  • Web panel icon/button vertical scroll

    Yes while the alternative is to just disable some of your less used web-panels I feel it would be ideal if when the panel is focused as a whole you can cycle through all your web panel icons with both a scroll of the mouse wheel or with UP / DOWN arrow keys.

    BUG: this suggestion would fix a bug I've noticed when too many web panels are loaded they get pushed outside of screen and the + becomes inaccessible due to being pushed down the screen too much...

    @onenil The answer is: when it's ready. But they're working on it already.

  • Better tab popup thumbnail like Firefox Tab Scope

    • Real-time preview of tab contents
    • Navigate (Back/Forward/Reload/Stop) through popup
    • Scroll pages or frames in preview with mouse wheel
    • Click links or buttons directly in preview
    • Automatically show preview for tabs opened in background

  • @dLeon,
    Isn't a middle click (wheel click) easier and safer?

  • History monthly view idea - right-click on day, choice of deleting all of history for that particular day only.

  • Follower Tabs, like we had in Opera.
    Open tab A. Create a Follower Tab ( tab B ). Any links clicked in tab A will open in tab B.
    NiftySplit extension provides similar functionality, but only allows creation of a follower window, not a tab.

  • @dLeon Thanks for looking into this in more detail. I'm sure the Vivaldi team has quite enough to work on without opening a whole new section of complicated code, but it would be nice if they get to it some day.

    I don't have Chromium installed. Maybe I will install it and file a request with them.
