Feature requests for Vivaldi 1.14
Hi everyone and Happy New Year!
Often I use F3 to continue searching a text in the page. And very often when I navigate to other page and use this command I notice that the search field's value was changed.
This short video shows a similar example:
Ability to automatically put the selected text to the search field via Ctrl + F is very useful, but not for commands "Find Next" and "Find Previous" (F3, Shift + F3 etc), because if I occasionally selected a text, pressing F3 will change the search field value.
Make this feature optional for commands Find Next and Find Previous.
I would like to continue using it with Ctrl + F but disable for F3.
option to always show name of current session in menu bar (or other visible place)
Stacked tabs should cycle in visual order when using ctrl+tab, as detailed here: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/15429/tab-cycling-and-tab-opening-issues-while-using-tab-stacks
Show Keyboard Shortcuts in context menus
The context menus show the keyboard shortcuts used by chrome, but not those set by vivaldi. E.g. right clicking a tab shows the "pin tab" command, but does not display a keyboard shortcut if one is set. Right now only the keyboard cheat sheet shows this info.
Lose search engine tracking prefix from followed URLs
Search engines are very useful. But some insist on tracking what you follow on to by use of a prefix that can be readily removed to avoid their tracking.
Import Search Engines.
An option to import search engines from other browsers - right now just available for FireFox -.
In the bookmark dropdown menu in the address bar it is difficult to distinguish between root folder, sub folders and single bookmarks when selecting a destination for a bookmark. It is much better in the bookmark panel. I know there are indentations as as you go deeper into a folder but it can be quite confusing. You have to move around to see if you are in a root folder or a sub folder. Improve the ability to distinguish folders and sub folders in the address bar bookmark dropdown. Use folder icons like in the bookmark panel or even use different coloured icons for main and sub folders.
"True portable" installation option created by combining standalone and sync features
An additional option next to normal and standalone which will install to a user-specified location (e.g. USB) but will fetch synchronised user data. It will:
- run from the standalone location
- use a temp location on the machine's hard disk for user files (so it can run faster and delete the user data on shutdown)
- requests the username and password at startup to sync all user data
This way, only the program will be stored in the standalone location (much smaller file size, better privacy) and you should get a similar experience on every machine you run it on.
Grey path after Short Address
The security feature of shortening the address in the address bar is to make it easier to see the domain you're currently visiting.
Other browsers do this by greying out the protocol, port and path. Vivaldi takes extended measures, similar to classic opera (hide protocol and query string), but is missing the greying out of the path.
option for moving extensions buttons to sidebar and appropriate popup forms position
Disable Middle Mouse Button "Click" action (event), except the links.
In Firefox, if you MMB on page space (except link), mouse selection will not reset, and MMB on scrollbar will not ridiculously jump-scroll the page - just turn on autoscroll.
Same behaviour will be good for Vivaldi.
Extensions right click drop down option - Refresh
- to refresh/reload the extension if it freezes which some do since they are carried over from Chrome.
Custom mouse gesture to hibernate background tabs.
Protected address bar
Like it used to be in Opera presto and only in that browser, once address bar receives focus — even while page loading or refreshing or browsing to another page — the content should not be reset by browser, as the user is thinking and typing, and doesn’t want their ongoing text (URL, search) to be lost.
Remove usage of ctrl+shift+C to restore chromium native usage
Native usage opens developer console & inspect element
Close previously selected bookmark folder. When a folder is selected in Bookmarks close other folders. (One folder open at a time.)
Remember last used download folder specifically for each domain
I'm often downloading new version of several applications. I have subfolder for each application. My request is to remember download folder used recently used for specific page/domain. For not remembered pages use default download folder.
for page https://mariadb.org/download/ folder c:\download\mariadb
for page https://www.ubuntu.com/download c:\download\ubuntu
This directories I choose manualy when I downloading from page and then when I visit page next time, download folder will be last choosen.
Sorry for my bad english
Clone Tab (on Incognito/Private)
To easly test broken sites - despite opening a new Window -.
Keyboard shortcuts for the following commands:
- "Hibernate background tabs"
- "Hibernate all tabs to left/right" (assuming that hibernate request gets implemented)
Integrated Download Routing
Basically more options in the Downloads tab to route downloads to the folder of your choosing automatically. Filetype, filename, source, etc.
