Feature requests for Vivaldi 1.14

  • 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.

    • 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

    Example of resized tiles

  • Allow us to tile tabs one at a time

    Tile tabs should not be hidden in the right click menu behind the requirement for multiple tabs Ctrl+Clicked or Shift+Clicked.

    If you do not have multiple tabs selected, the second tab will either be the active tab (if you right clicked on a background tab) or it would be the tab that would have been activated had you closed the active tab (if you right clicked on the active tab).

    For tiling more tabs than what you started with, behavior should be that it treats the active tile as a single window. The inactive tiles do not move, and only the active tile is further split by wanting to tile further.

    Example of tiled tabs menu done right

  • Allow tiling to persist even if active tab changes

    If I currently have Tile 2 active and I click the new tab button, then render the New Tab Page in tile 2. Leave Tile 1 where it is.

    Use case? Easy. You want to put a video up on the side and continue using the browser like normal. For this purpose, you are required to move the video to a new window and manually set it on the side.

    Example of tiling persisting with new tab

  • Allow us to untile tabs individually

    Going alongside tiling one at a time, if we tile 3 tabs but then want to untile 1. Current state is having to untile everything, then recreate your tiles with the one tab less.

  • Allow us to assign a single gesture command to multiple gestures

    Example would be making a right click drag left equivalent to a right click drag right.

    How is this for idea 3? Edit: You scratched out idea 3; your current response 3 is also a cumbersome working around for closing tabs and not at all intuitive. So that idea is still valid.

    Changing to a different tab while tiled should swap out the currently active tiled tab with the newly activated tab

    I have Tab 1, 2 and 3.

    I have tiled Tab 1 and tiled Tab 2.

    Now if I have Tab 2 active and I click Tab 3 it should replace tiled Tab 2. That is, I should see Tab 1 and Tab 3 together.

    If I have Tab 3 active and click New TAB (not new window), then the New Tab window should be displayed in that tile.

    Running on battery power so can't record current behavior, but it is not as you describe.

  • Allow us to remove certain items from context menu

    (My use case would be to get rid of the "Open link in new tab" because I only ever want it to open in a background tab, which is a separate item in the context menu.)
