Feature requests for 1.12



  • @lonm thank you so much for the feedback! I discovered more senseless default shortcuts that certainly could use a tweaking.

    • Bookmarks should be "Ctrl+Alt+B" instead of Ctrl+B (because it's used for Bold)
    • View Source should be anything else than CTRL+U (because it's used for Underlines)
    • Focus Address field should be "ALT+D" instead of "CTRL+L" which is the browser standards ( I know CTRL+L is Linux GUI standard for directory selection nevertheless!).

    -D



  • @dinoraptor you can edit the keyboard shortcuts how you like them. I never use text modifiers so for me the keys are ok like that. Besides, there's not real "standard", most browser have different and multiple ways to select the address field like Ctrl-L, Alt-D, F6, (F8 too in Vivaldi), but how many can let you change them? At least with Vivaldi you can.



  • @ Vivaldi Team,
    In "Capture Page" feature, following options is not available. Requesting Vivaldi team to add these options in 1.12

    • Option to "Save as PDF" in "Capture Page" ('Full Page' option)
    • Option to "Save as PDF" in "Select Area" ('Selection' option)
    • Option to select only specific area in scrolling page (full page) and save as PDF

    Thanks



  • This request was brought up by me in this post, but was asked to post the request here.

    I really do appreciate the latest Inspect Image tool, but I'd also like to see something a little more simplistic in addition. Maybe have something like Image Properties, which pops up a small window with simplistic image properties, but having an advanced button to go to a tab with the current Inspect Image tool.

    My reasoning is that when on a page with an image I want to investigate, it'd be nice to still be on the page where the image resides and not have to go to a separate tab for simple image properties if you have tabbed browsing. Maybe just have an option for this kind of thing, defaulting to the current Inspect Image.

    Still, thanks for the Inspect Image tool.



  • Add an Address Bar Option to Show/Hide the Home button

    Ability to add/move/remove buttons and UI elements.



  • @pesala Must have missed that one when reading through the posts



  • Tab bar: Handling many opened tabs like Firefox

    The current handling is that tabs are getting smaller and smaller the more are opened. This gets up to a point where the caption cannot be read anymore.

    It would be nice if the tab bar could be made scrollable (I do not mean switching tabs with the mouse wheel) like in Firefox when a certain number of tabs is open, so that they can keep a minimum size.



  • "Open Link In New Background Tab" on top of the popup menu list

    Not sure about you guys, but for me the "Open Link In New Background Tab" is more important and more often used than the "Open Link In New Tab", so I think it should be on top of the popup menu list when I right click on a link.... I found myself very often clicking on the first option by accident... Other browsers have this option on top because of this..

    Example of the ideal order:

    alt text

    Thanks..



  • @regnas See, I'm the complete opposite, in that I rarely open a tab in the background. So, on a personal level, I'd be hit by your suggestion.

    What would be nice is the ability to edit the menus, but I expect such a thing will be some time coming, if at all.

    @regnas This is covered by this earlier feature request.

    Allow Editing of Menus

    Changing defaults will always annoy someone, so the best option is to allow full customisation of menus as we can do in Opera 12.17.

  • Vivaldi engine

    Not quite easy and not only for v1.12, but I think cutting off with Chromium would make Vivaldi more customized and famous.

    I understand.... my suggestion is for power users only, regular users will never understand the speed of having it on top of the menu... 😉

    Cheers....................



  • @regnas Personally, I feel that the real power users out there would have discovered the middle click for such usage by now. 😉

    I do use the middle click and ctrl click of course, but I'm not always with mouse or with my hand on the keyboard... Think power.. 😉



  • @regnas What you've wrote is fairly ambiguous, so I'm reading it that you mean that your hands are on the keyboard and you don't want to take them off that in order to use the mouse; time wasting, etc. Sure, that's fine. Why not make a keyboard shortcut by configuring Vivaldi in Settings>Keyboard>Page>Open Link in Background Tab (Over a Link)? No need to take your hands off the keyboard doing it that way. I mean, power users don't care about menus when there are keyboard shortcuts to be played with. 😉

    Still, my initial point is that your suggestion is only considering your own usage and not that of others, who'll be affected by your wish. I'm fine with the idea of having user configurable menus, which I'd like, which would suit all users.

    No, I mean, I'm always super busy and on the go mostly using laptops (no mouse here), only one hand available most of the time and for the touchpad area only....... You get the picture.............. 😉



  • @regnas Then configure your touchpad to emulate a middle click.

    BTW, I do hope I'm not getting the picture about your one-handed use of your laptop. 😉

    That's not a option unfortunately.....
    I use opera btw (I know it's a browser for noobs), because it's faster to navigate than vivaldi at moment (the drag and drop operations are great, and the context menus are well organized), but I found a bug in their developer tools (I already reported) but they didn't fixed it yet, so this week I'm with vivaldi, and I'm already feeling the PITA.... Without the full drag and drop operations vivaldi feels like an unfinished web browser.... Hope they listen and start implementing them... 🙂



  • Hi,
    is there a way to get the web-paneel (sidebar) to toggle (open/close) by just "mouseover" without any click on it?
    Thanks in advance
