Feature Request



  • First of I'd like to say that your browser is already looking really nice. I love the design, it looks beautiful. New and improved speed dial is great and tab stacking is fantastically improved. Things I would like to see. Ability to remove/make things invisible. This includes the status bar, google search field near address field and making scroll bars invisible. Also, I would love a "ctrl+`" shortcut like in Opera which lets you cycle between two recent tabs. And "ctrl+shift+t" shortcut to open previously closed tab. Lastly, download manager is no good at all in my opinion. Has to be improved somehow. I love current download manager in Opera right now so I think it should be more like that.

    Not sure if you're serious… You can already hide the status bar and the search field. Also, you can set the tabs cycling order and cycle between two tabs with Ctrl+Tab. Ctrl+Shift+T is available as well in the latest snapshot.

    As much as I like Vivaldi, I must ask what do you mean by that? Improved compared to what?! :lol:

    Compared to Opera 12. What else?

    Where do I find this? There is no option in settings to remove status bar, nor is there an option to remove the search bar.

    As for tab cycling having one or the other is useless to me. I need both.



  • Ok, so this actually explains a lot. Of course, I was not running the latest snapshot. I had no idea that the one on the main page wasn't the latest one. Thanks. The tab cycling actually works properly now too.

    As for tab stacking, it is much better visually. Sure you can't expand but I don't really care about that. If this is so important I'm sure it's not much of an issue to add that. However, visually and usability-wise its a huge improvement. The only thing I wish they added is automatic stacking by domain option. I would love to have that.

    You have to be kidding me! :D Well, it's half-automatic, actually: right click on a tab > Collect tabs

    Note that it doesn't work for subdomains.

    That's nice I guess. But why not to add a checkbox in settings for it to be automatic?

    Being able to expand and collapse stacks is a must-have feature for me. I only use stacks to hide some tabs that I don't currently use, so I can have more room for the one that I do currently use.
    But when I do need to use the stacked tabs, I expand the stack and use them just like normal tabs. I NEVER select tabs by clicking the previews.
    Also, when a stack is expanded, its A LOT easier to drag a tab to that stack than it is to drag a tab on a collapsed stack, which needs a lot more precision and wastes time. I usually only waste this time once, when stacking the first two tabs to create the stack.
    A bonus for being able to expand a stack is that you can arrange the tabs in the stack. In Vivaldi, the order of tabs in stacks is set in stone; very annoying.
    So, actually, usability-wise, tab stacks in Vivaldi are lagging tab stacks in Opera 12.

    I agree with RRR13. Would like to be able to expand and contract stacks. +1
