Feature requests: NEW ideas (No Opera 12 features here, please !)



  • Given most of the threads are plenty of requests for features coming from Opera 12 and given that , more or less, we all know what Is still missing (including Jon and the Vivaldi team, I believe) , I would like to reserve this thread for new ideas and for features you wish see on Vivaldi, but not implemented in Opera. I start asking for a dual/multi language spell checker or, at least, for a "per website" spell checker option. Would be really useful for people (like me) used to post both in native and English language.

    Or an option to automatically recognize the language for the spell checker.



  • @Em-a-il:

    Yes, this one too. ;)



  • So far, no one added new requests, so I post my second idea

    Would be nice to have, when the browser is in full screen mode, a sliding essential panel.

    I mean something like the ones present in the remote desktop clients or in Virtualbox/Vmware when they are in full screen mode.



  • It's hard to think of new features as Opera 12.17 has so many, but there are still a few common feature requestions that never got implemented.

    [ol]

    • Mail Encryption
    • FTP Upload: Convenient to edit one's own web sites to correct typos without launching a web application
    • Colour Font Support like Firefox: Demo Page See screen shot below for Colour Font previewed in FontCreator
    • One click backup: Mail, Notes, Bookmarks, Passwords, Search Engines, Preferences, etc., in an encrypted 7-Zip archive convenient for safe storage on a USB stick for backup and transferal of settings to other computers.
    • ?
    • More later

    I like challenges :)

    And also I believe that many people got used to ask endlessly for Opera features one the Opium blog and here behaves in the same way.

    While asking to Opium people to get them to step back and hear the users is ok, doing the same here makes less sense.

    There is little point in trying to convince Jon and his team of something they are already convinced.

    They need just time, where feasible, the Opera features will came (w/o even asking)

    • A sidebar with a list of all embedded videos and an option save to disk, so you can watch them later without buffering.
    • Resize a textarea per keyboard: When the textarea has focus, use Ctrl+Alt+ Arrow to change the size.

    Calendar.

    Sync Contacts and Calendar with Google.

    Sync images of contacts with Facebook/G+/LinkedIn.

    What? These aren't "new?" To Opera or Vivaldi they are. They have never been seen to date.



  • Yeah, CardDav and CalDav sync will be great. The RSS feed sync to, with there status (read/unread) for each articles, and there achives to.

    The cloud services integration could be great. For Google and Outlook, but also Owncloud. So for example, when I make a new note, it's saved on my cloud, in the directory I defined. When I add a bookmark, it is synced with my cloud bookmark service, etc. I would like to sync with and access to my datas on the service I want (Owncloud/SOGo/TTRSS in my case).

    A dark mode : when I'm in a dark environment, I prefer to have dark windows, it's better for my eyes. So I would like a mode which "darkify" all light websites, like Google for example.





  • 1. Split Screen mode
    2. Alternative mouse combination Right Click + Wheel to Zoom.



  • I like the "Sound notification icon on tabs" from the new opera 29 developer. So why not add something like it to vivaldi.


  • Moderator

    Vivaldi has sound notification on tabs.



  • @Stardust:

    1. Split Screen mode

    I like a lot this, it was a feature present on KDE's Konqueror since the beginning at the end of the last millennium and I've always missed it.



  • @greenenemy:

    Resource sniffer similar to maxthon's http://wiki.maxthon.com/index.php/File:Mx3_resource_sniffer_window.png

    +1



  • +1000 to Split Screen mode!! Is a really great feature.
    Or even add in the side panel an option to load a webpage (and an option to load the web in mobile mode)



  • I'd like to drop this guy's suggestion in here: https://vivaldi.net/forum/all/1725-feature-request-launch-wheel
    The idea reminds me of Crysis' quickwheel http://i47.tinypic.com/6nqfkw.jpg

    Left+Right mouse buttons together sound like a good button combo for that sorta wheel, though, rather than selecting the item on hover, it might be better to highlight selected item on hover, and select on release.
    That "wheel" could be dynamic (no set places, grows with more entries), and could either hold items from Speed Dial, or a Bookmark Folder.



  • Given It come out elsewhere I want to add

    An operalink like service done via p2p and or via user's cloud folder.

    @The_Solutor:

    Interesting concept. It could work of course - especially the cloud idea. People have been known to store their entire profile in a network or cloud folder - which means of course, every copy of the browser would be using the exact same data, bit-for-bit - but only one copy of the browser would be able to USE the profile at a time. The benefit of a user using whatever cloud service they had already adopted to do the syncing, would be that sync could be rolled out without Vivaldi Technologies having to first invest in a server farm.

    A p2p sync seems a bit more fraught, because unless I'm mistaken, p2p requires a predictable IP address at which one client finds another. I suppose some other addressing or haling system could be introduced whereby every one of my copies of the browser could find each other on the internet - but only so long as each end of the sync relationship were open and on line. And then you'd have to ensure end-to-end encryption.



  • @RRR13:

    So, how does it work? Is it like Opera's web panels?

    For Old Opera there's a powerful custom button that splits the current window:

    First click splits it horizontally, second click splits it vertically, long click reloads the page and so removes the split.

    opera:/button/Go%20to%20page,%22javascript%3A(function(f)%7Bif(f)if(f.rows)%7Bf.cols=f.rows;f.removeAttribute('rows')%7Delse%7B%20f.rows=f.cols;f.removeAttribute('cols')%7Delse%7Bvar%20w=window,d=document,html=d.documentElement.outerHTML;d.write('%3Ctitle%3E'+d.title+'%3C/title%3E%3Cframeset%20rows=%5C'50%,50%'+'%5C'%20id=%5C'fset__%5C'%3E%3Cframe%20id=%5C'f1%5C'%3E%3Cframe%20id=%5C'f2%5C'%3E%3C/frameset%3E');w.f1.document.write(html);w.f2.document.write(html)%7D%7D)(window.fset__)%22,1,%22Split(H+V)%22,%22Tile%20vertically%22%20+%20Reload
