Can't wait…



  • First things first, congrats and a huge THANK YOU for taking on the task of creating a new browser (that seems promising). By what I gathered, it seems that you are trying to create a browser like 'what Opera should have been'. I have been using Opera since the days you had to pay for it and I haven't found a replacement yet worthy of using, meaning, I'm still with Opera 12.17 My suggestions for improving Vivaldi: [ul] [li]when creating new Speed Dial entries, give addresses from open tabs as options not existing bookmarks[/li] [li]improve the "sortability" of the side bar. At the moment it feels like win7 where folders open when least expected, making a decent job almost impossible[/li] [li]password auto-fill needs a master password to protect passwords, otherwise anyone using (stealing) my computer can access sensitive sites[/li] [/ul] Thanks again and cheers, Mick



  • One more thing,

    "paste and go" menu option when right-clicking address bar would be nice.



  • @micknobrasil:

    improve the "sortability" of the side bar. At the moment it feels like win7 where folders open when least expected, making a decent job almost impossible

    What Vivaldi version and Windows version?

    If you mean the Bookmarks in the side Panel (and the Bookmarks page available from the Speed Dial page), I noticed very erratic folder behavior in Developer Build v1.0.129.2.

    However, the 32-bit Developer Build v1.0.135.2 seems to be working great on 32-bit Win7!

    (BTW, "paste and go" has been requested numerous times, and I'm sure it will eventually be available.)



  • I'm being patient with this, but I note that in Vivaldi 32 on Win 8.1 X64, when trying to move a bookmark past a closed folder, the damn folder instantly pops open and swallows the bookmark. it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to move bookmarks past folders. And if (as in many of mine) there are thirty or fifty items in a folder, or many folders within a folder, this becomes a sort of nightmare.

    I'm sure Vivaldi will install a sensible hover delay to ensure that a folder only opens if you have been hovering it long enough to make it CLEAR you want it to open. But right now, there is essentially no delay at all. Thank God, for the time being, I have finished my trek through this mine field and don't need to do any more substantial bookmarks arranging for the time being.



  • @Ayespy:
    Oh, yes, I was thinking more about folder arrows that wouldn't respond after the first click until I clicked on another arrow in v1.0.129.2. I haven't been doing any bookmark sorting since installing v1.0.135.2 and had forgotten about the problem with bookmark folders opening almost instantly when attempting to drag a bookmark past a folder. It makes sorting VERY difficult.

    I just checked that on my Win7 (32-bit) v1.0.135.2 and it seems slightly better (maybe?) but still pretty bad. Definitely needs a longer hover timeout before the folder opens.

    As far as I can tell, it IS impossible to drag a bookmark past a folder at the bottom of the bookmarks list and drop in below/outside the folder (it always ends up in the folder). So maybe there needs to be an empty "space" below a folder at the bottom of the list that will accept a dragged bookmark.

    So if that is what OP micknobrasil meant, it is still pretty bad.

    password auto-fill needs a master password to protect passwords, otherwise anyone using (stealing) my computer can access sensitive sites

    Yes, master password is must! Now only Firefox and Opera 12.17 have this feature!
