Vivaldi should look like love (: - design inspirations



  • Hi guys at Vivaldi. because so many layouts in web are often in blue, i found Vivaldi should look not like the the bluish portals > Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google and all the others. I find the blue + grey combination looks dusty and cold. So how about you play more with the colour red, black and white ? Red is the colour of your logo ? It would look warmer and more cosy. Also the Settings section would belook much nicer in an an other tone then blue.

  • I'd be on board with all of these, especially the progress indicator in the download panel.



  • Yes, this look great but black is sharp much.



  • looking good!

    Indeed, black is not a good choice. It really strains my eyes. Vivaldi team knew what it was doing when it chose the gray that is currently used.
    I do like the progress bar for the downloads a lot, though.

    The horizontal bar ( with bookmarks, history ) shall be transparent, it looks so dark on the screenshot becauase of the dark theme.
    The side panel in my opinion should also be transparent. With brighter themes, for example in yellow it would look much "softer".

    That are just suggestions, don't concentrate on the black - my suggestion is that the bar and the panel should be transparent ;) I just do not like the current look of Vivaldi, because it feels to "cold" :blush:

    My point is, that this blue not fit to Vivaldi and red accents would be the better choice :) And grey, i don't know, i just don't like the colour.

    Vivaldi should give us a paintbox :lol:

    I too do not like the progress bar a lot. I'd prefer the animated (green) effect on download logo (just like FireFox) along with the progress bar. The green effect will aware the user that the download has just started, without needing him/her to check the tiny progress bar.



  • I made a board on ideaboard about this (not news, it's for idea sharing)
    http://ideaboardapp.appspot.com/vivaldi-themes
    It allows ranking of ideas which would be great for something like this, where the ideas quickly get buried in the chain of comments
    Also, the most wanted ideas are at the top, perfect for quickly seeing what is the most popular idea
    No commenting on it, so maybe link to a comment here, or elsewhere on the forum



  • I still prefer my DTA Theme for Opera to any of the others — just enough colour, and large icons, with a blue background.

    I dislike all of the dark themes, but Mocha Dark is about as good as it gets.

    Chosen Button, with its sculptured tabs, is also a cut above the rest.
