"Start bar" from old Opera



  • Do you remember "start bar"? I know it was not very popular between Opera users, but for me it was one of the best toolbars because it was possible to put there everything (bookmarks, search bars, favicons, etc.) and it was hidden since you clicked on adress bar. What do you think about reactivating it in Vivaldi?

    There have been a few calls for it. It doesn't look like something that would be a high priority for the team, but I can't imagine anyone objecting if it were to come back, either.





  • I could imagine the bookmark bar so flexible, that it could substitute Start Bar. Start bar was always one of my priorities, but to fix to the address bar would be a too complex solve for this problem. But an "expandable" (optionally multiline) bookmark bar could work similarly to startbar.

    Agree.
    Maybe some kind of autohide option for bookmark bar would do the job.
