[Feature Request] 4k support and opera 12 like menu.
So far this is a great browser it just lacks a few important features. 1: 4k support. When ran on a 4k monitor the browser looks blurry. It does not properly scale to 4k. Even Opera 21 scales correctly to 4k. This is big for me. 2: Make the drop down menu from the Vivaldi button have more like the drop down menu from Opera 12. This allows for easy acess to things like history and bookmarks 3: Password Key button. I loved the key button to enter saved passwords that was great in O12. 4: Turbo mode. This was and still is great for slow internet conections
"3: Password Key button. I loved the key button to enter saved passwords that was great in O12."
+1 - loved… because of better passwords security than filled forms
… 4: Turbo mode. This was and still is great for slow internet conections
The Turbo-mode feature requires compression servers in different locales to be of much practical use, especially in the Orient and a few other places. That may take a while and some non-trivial expense to accomplish, assuming Vivaldi even elects to establish such a server presence and develop the algorithms and such for the feature. Turbo was originally a variant of the compression-serving schemes used with Opera's mobile browsers. Moreover, Turbo may present some "issues" in places that censor national web usage, since a conventional Turbo server is a proxy that can presumably be used to end-run around national firewalls. In such places, arrangements may have to be negotiated with national authorities to provide censor-compliant compression servers for those behind the firewall, else the extra-national Turbo server addresses may find themselves being blocked by the national firewall or even the download/use of the browser by nationals (via its user-agent string) may become suppressed. It's not necessarily a simple matter…
Yes, I could see where turbo would take a long time to get. My biggest problem with vivaldi now is the lack of 4k support. It just looks so blurry
Just ran peacekeeper vivaldi gets 1716 opera 27 only gets 1431. So much faster.
