Feature requests for Vivaldi 1.14

  • Tabs should be able to be moved between windows from the Window Panel

    When the Window Panel is per window as it is currently, moving tabs between windows should be done similarly to the tab bar, using either a context menu or a drag-and-drop method.

  • Current time and date in tab bar


  • Automatically show Panels on Mouseover

    Not using the toggle, but just on moving the mouse cursor to the extreme edge of the screen or browser window.

  • Get panels on address bar.
    Would be cool to have menus on the adress bar to access bookmarks, history, notes, etc... Just panels, but as a pop up, that's the idea. The less UI in the window the better for me, cause if I need to repeat a lot some operations I just quickly tweak stuff around for that purpose, then when there are no papers or projects in my to do list I just set everything back to a clean interface.

    Notes Tab on Start Page
    An extra tab on the start page showing a "full page version" of the notes panel, like the bookmarks and history tabs.
    Maybe set up like this:

    │list of notes  │
    │for   │preview │
    │note  │        │

  • 'Close all tabs' in the context in the tab bar

    If the bookmarks bar is full, make the bookmarks smaller instead of the extension arrow
    So exactly as it is done in the tab bar.

  • Resources Abuse Warning & Blocker Manager/Panel

    Coin mining is currently running rampage in various website, (Ad) blocker is no longer an OPTION, but a NECESSARY feature to protect our hardware. All noobs need this protection ASAP.

    1. Monitor & limit CPU each tab; if exceeded limit for over 30 secs, show a warning popup to allow terminate js/video/audio that cause high CPU.

    2. Blocker Dashboard in panel/tab. Please make it easy to access, don't hide the GUI inside some obscure settings.

    3. Anti-anti Blocker. Cat & mouse game, better block 'em b4 they try to block u.

    Advice for everyone: For now, use Nano Adblocker + Nano Defender (anti-anti blocker). It's not perfect, but it's better than nothing.

  • Close Tab Activation - Activate First Non-Hibernated Left/Right in Tab Order

  • @josh-dotson Chat is not enabled for you yet, hence this reply.

    • Ctrl+Click on tabs to select multiple tabs
    • Ctrl+Shift+Click to select a range of tabs
    • Right-click to create a tab-stack from the selected tabs
    • Without selecting, you can right-click to stack tabs by host.

    Do not reply. Just upvote my post if you got the message, then the moderator can delete both of our posts.

  • Add Address bar preference to hide the Home button.

  • Ability to mute tabs when no sound is playing on that tab.

    Currently, if a chat app has a notification sound which only dings once in a while - I'm unable to mute that because no sound is playing most of the time. It's impossible to "catch" it.

    Options that exist currently are prioritize sound (which doesn't work very well) and mute all (which i don't want to mute my music or youtube). Clicking the mute icon in the tab also is hard to get when the sound is sporadic.

  • Standalone Web Panel

    Enable the side web panel to be undocked from the main browser interface and used as a stand alone mini browser with show/hide controls added to the Vivaldi Background Taskbar Icon.

    Keep tabs on your social media without having the tabs or for quick access to productivity crib sheets etc.


  • Allow us to change where the divider is between tiled tabs

    AKA resize tiles
