Feature requests for 1.12



  • 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.

    @pesala said in Feature requests for 1.12:

    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



  • @regnas Well, Vivaldi is relatively new and its devs are constantly adding features and fixing bugs. So, in that sense, it's unfinished, but it's moving onwards and upwards. The devs do respond to users' requests and are responsive to feedback, which I do think is a big plus point for them. There are things I'd like improved, but unlike most browsers, for me, it's moving in the right direction.

    Anyway, this is the feature request page, so I'll stop here before trying others' patience. 😉 Nice speaking to you. 🙂



  • Prevent Stable Version Update to Dev Version

    Stable version and Dev version running at the same time confused the updater. If I delete one of them then it back to normal.

  • an ability to create multiple user profiles internally and set custom settings on each profile (a per-profile theme, for example), plus the ability to set a custom profile for each tab.

    Bonus if you can implement automatic triggers that switch profiles based on URL active on tab/active network connection/etc.



  • @luetage Yeah, I'm tired of typing chrome://settings/content/cookies each time I need to add cookie exception. That would be nice to add some new buttons like "add as exception" to saved cookie list, besides "remove", or any other NATIVE way to do this. A button near "bookmark" in address field gonna be even better (just dreams sob).



  • Add Toggle Images and Page Actions (from status bar) to tab context menu.

    This allows changing what the page will look like before it is switched to.


  • Vivaldi Translator

    An option to resume downloads: Interrupted downloads should resume (wherever possible). This will help a lot of people with slow internet connections where network drops are very common.
    Example: A person might be downloading a hundred MB file and his connection drops at around 97% (and he has spent nearly forty minutes to get there), the download stops there. The only way to complete it is, by restarting the process and keeping fingers crossed.


  • Vivaldi Translator

    Press and hold the mouse button to surf a full size image like Opera 12 (the second picture).
