Spatial navigation should not start from the top of the page
Spatial navigation implementation is rather unusable: SHIFT ARROW: - should NOT start highlighting links from the top of the page, rather [b]from the top of the [u]view[/u] of the page[/b] that the user is viewing at that specific moment - should not start from the last link it stopped onto, once you scroll the page up or down, rather it should start from the topmost (or lowermost) link [b][u]of the view[/u][/b] of page that the user is viewing This would stop that annoying scrolling from the top (while you are maybe reading the bottom of the page and wished to open a link, there) and that annoying other scrolling from the last link it stopped onto. newscpq
I second that
I agree with you in the first point. I would like to start in the top of the visible part of a web page.
But very often I use spatial navigation for example to read the new postings in forums like this. I go to the open tab, reload and start spatial navigation to the first link with unread messages. I open it with CTRL-ENTER in a new tab. After reading this thread I close the tab (CTRL-W) and go down to the next link. At the end of the visible part I scroll a little down and want to jump to the next unread thread, not again to the top of the visible window, even if I do not scroll first.
I don't know if this is the same you think.
Fully agreed. I already filed a couple of bug reports on spatnav; it's a nice proof of concept but not nearly ready in the current preview.
Old Opera wasn't perfect either, but it did the job reasonably well. Surpassing that should be the goal.
Yes, the problem with the start of Spatial Nav is known by Vivaldi Devs. Fix is just in the queue, i really know it. Please wait
