Feature requests for Vivaldi 1.14

  • @pesala

    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.)

  • Force the close tab button on mouseover to persist no matter what the tab width is.

    Middle click to close does not work if you are on a laptop.

  • When opening a new window, it should match the current size of the current window

    If I have my current Vivaldi window maximized, the new Vivaldi window should also start out in a maximized state.

  • Allow us to title tabs vertically from the context menu

    Split the "Tile n Tabs" context menu when multiple tabs are selected into "Tile n Tabs Horizontally" and "Tile n Tabs Vertically"

  • make the address bar can automatically be hiden.
    ie the bar underneath the tab bar can be automatically be hiden.

  • Option to define auto-save rules for downloads from particular URLs to different local folders.

  • Syncing Everything: In addition to syncing passwords, bookmarks, speed dials, etc. Being able to sync all the custom thumbnails for the speed dials, custom themes, and the start page wallpapers would be extremely helpful.

  • Directly putting speed dial favorites in folders, if possible (:

  • The ability to click on "file/share"

    There's one major feature missing that EVERY browser (EVERY browser) has that Vivaldi doesn't.

    There's no easy way to send a website to someone with Vivaldi unless you copy and paste the link. You should be able to click on "share" and have it automatically bring up an email. If someone else has already requested this, I didn't see it but there way too many posts to look through to find it. Looks like people are inundated Vivaldi with feature requests.

  • I'd like to see Vivaldi open new tabs in the background by default instead of having to take special steps to get it to do that.

    Every other browser on the market either opens in the background by default or has the option in settings.

  • Hi again, I thought of another request that could prove handy: A secondary zone for extensions, as illustrated below:

    text alternatif

  • Include the presentation mode in the "View" menu

    This is trivial to implement (I imagine), would make perfect sense, and would have no downside.

    It's probably trivial because the feature is already available through a shortcut (which I found it impossible to remember, because I don't use the mode everyday) under the name of "Toggle UI".

    The "presentation mode" is different from the "fullscreen mode". (Search Vivaldi forum with "presentation mode".)

  • Default to selecting the first item in the saved sessions list

    Usecase: I use a shortcut (Shift+Ctrl+P) to access the Quick Commands, which I use to then access saved sessions (Open Saved Sessions). After doing so, I then need to use my mouse to select the first item, after which point I may as well click the Open button. Ideally, I'd like for the entire behavior to be enabled to be keyboard driven, so I'd never have to take my hands off the keyboard to launch a session. Just a matter of Shift+Ctrl+P, typing Open Saved Sessions, and pressing Enter (or if I have multiple open, using the arrow keys then Enter).

  • Audio device output selection

    For example: ability to send audio from specified tab to Speakers, even if Windows default is set to Headphones.

    Especially when gaming, I have game audio and TeamSpeak at headphones, but I would like to listen some music mix from YouTube at speakers.

    Never seen ability like that in any other browser, but it could be useful in some cases.

  • Ability to replace web search field with find-in-page search box

    I can already web search from address bar, two search fields are "a bit" useless.
