Feature requests for 1.9 / 1.10

  • @rhstogus said in Feature requests for 1.9 / 1.10:

    -Block Phishing and Malware (Not Google's because Google's own version sends data to the mothership)

    It actually updates a blacklist at Vivaldi's startup and checks sites against that static list, AFAIK. You can already disable reporting the errors to Google through Vivaldi's UI.

    -Block Scripts

    Though not directly accessible through Vivaldi's UI, you can access content settings via vivaldi://chrome/settings and disable JS globally, then enable it on a per-site basis using the site badge.

    For more fine-grained control (i.e. allow JS per request domain, not only main URL), the uMatrix extension comes to mind. (I would myself like a uMatrix-like generic blocker built-in, but I doubt it'll come)

  • @IcePanther I mean i dont really want to install extensions. I prefer things like built in some of the other browsers lol

  • Hardware acceleration messes with the menus on my laptop, making them unreadable and unusable. It would help if there was a way to turn it on/off with a shortcut. Otherwise, the browser is unusable to me on some systems (Manjaro for sure).

    Delele multiple tab stacking groups

    When I click on some tab stacking groups (plus some single tabs) and I click to close them is deleted all selected tabs but from groups is deleted just the last one of the group was seleted not the all tabs of the group. I would like this were fixed

  • @cynical13
    Did you check with Google Chrome Beta (relative same version)?
    On recent v:59, Chromium upstream block/tweaks many GPU again.

    Shortcut to turn off hadware accel from start?
    vivaldi --disable-gpu?

  • @pycur The fact that it is standalone does not make it portable unfortunately... copying Vivaldi standalone to another system removes all extensions and passwords (due to how Chromium works).

  • please add dragable web panel
    see the details here : https://forum.vivaldi.net/post/124163

  • Hi guys

    I wonder if it is possible to have a better tab stacking snapshot view. when I bring my cursor on a stacked tab, I see all tabs square thumbnails side by side. But the problem is that if I have too many tabs stacked together (for example 30), This view is really cannot be used. They fill up the whole screen and you cannot even see all tabs. I don't know if there is any other view for stacked tabs or not, but if not, I think this view needs a redesign.


  • @afshin.pir I agree, they should be expandable (as well as usable in a tree view in windows panel)

  • @afshin.pir said in Feature requests for 1.9 / 1.10:

    I have too many tabs stacked together (for example 30),

    Yes. That is the problem. Twenty is fine, if you need thirty then you really need two stacks.

    Devoting development resources to making such exceptional cases workable is wasteful IMO. Tree style tabs won't help much either if users open 30 tabs in a stack.

    Speed Dial is a similar case. It stops being useful if one has more slots than will fit in one window. Sure, the thumbnails could be made smaller, but then one has to hunt and peck to find the right one, which defeats the purpose of Speed Dial. It is better to create a new Speed Dial folder than to try to squeeze too many tiny thumbnails into a single screen.

  • Proxy settings for each web site.

  • @jumpsq
    You actually use proxy like that? Isn't that tiresome in long term to keep in check every proxy for every designated sites.

  • @dLeon Yes, I especially have an exception list for all my RSS feeds and for mail accounts in M2 (exception to use proxy even if I have it inactive for all other sites). I retrieve updates there quite regularly and I do not want the website owners to be able to track my position / movement (although the feeds are not personalized, that should be rather easy).
    I use the same SOCKS 5 proxy there for all the connections; however, I would not mind to be able to customize this even further (this proxy for this website, other proxy for another).

  • Opera 12.x has the ability to automatically detect the logo/favicon of the site that's added to the SpeedDial, and use it as a thumbnail - a big, clean and easily recognizable logo. Why not make Vivaldi do the same?

  • @eddydc Wholeheartedly agree. I would vouch for a feature that allows exporting and importing all Vivaldi preferences via the command line or have all these settings stored within an individual file that could be copied from one Vivaldi installation to another. This would allow easily setting up multiple computers with the same Vivaldi preferences.

  • I wonder whether there are plans to implement the functionality of the extension "Disconnect" natively: "say no to mass collection of your online activity and trackers"

    Apart from many people being annoyed of some companies tracking their browsing, blocking those sniffers will result in faster browsing and more security as the attack vector of malware being delivered as social code is prevented.

  • ALL categories of search results in the Address Bar dropdown list should be optional, not just turning off bookmarks and typed history. The user should be able to choose what he/she wants to see in the search results list - history, bookmarks, open pages, web search results, etc. I myself usually need local search results (history and bookmarks), but not web search items. Everyone is different and that's the concept Vivaldi is based on.

    1. Possibility to drag (change the order) of web-panels.
    2. Less space between icons of web-panels.
    3. Right-click menu on a bookmark in the folder (same as right-click on top-level bookmark).
    4. I can drag bookmark into a folder. But how to drag it back from folder to top-level of bookmarks panel?

  • @Orthodox said

    • I turned off Bookmarks & Typed History in address bar settings.
    • Turned off Chromium prediction service & empty all search suggestions in Search engine settings.

    With all of that, I only get History list in drop down.

    So, I don't understand about your Web Search Item.

  • a notification on starting downloads would be nice
