Export/Import for User Settings
it would be nice to have it as a priority XD such a vital an important thing UnU is like creating a car, adding new stuff, new seats, stereo, but forgot to create a way to change the wheels XD
@FlowXP agree XD and you would't even need a vivaldi account or you can just share them with friends and a lot of cool and vital stuff
Opera < 13 had a third party programme to do that. Exported everything to a Zip file. Back it up and you could put all your customizations right back in.
Don't know what happened to the developer.
But then O12 and Chromium... like Apples and Oranges. With every Chromium change what happens?
@Zalex108 OVerly complicated that's how Im used to do things, a lot of things break! and carryng a 300mb-2GB folder is annoying and slow :c I would personally like a more human way

Just copy the
Default- folder (that is the standard profile-folder) and paste it into the other PCs/notebooks. You can use an USB-stick.
In the secondary machines you have to install Vivaldi first of course and run it.
Then, after closing, overwrite the profile folder from stick.
And finally you can activate synchronization.
That's the point :T it could be 2mb maxim, I dont want to copy all my extensions and stuff that vivaldi would sync for me :T compressing and decompressing takes time, imagine having a simple file could be .json, .xml, whatever and just send it over the web in a inbox to yourself XD or even with bluetooth.
I'm not complaining, I'm just asking you to imagine that scenario, imaging a tired developer, with a old pc without wifi connection, just sending a file across bluetooth or dont have to worry to "make space" in an old fashioned usb just to stored a lot of unnecesary data, now imaging, people who uses a lot of computers, copying and pasting folders, compressing and decompressing...
Maybe not an export button, maybe JUST centralize all the no sync configuration data in a SINGLE file :T I know that would be even harder, because that would mean reconfigure all the vivaldi file system :T
Plz considere the simple users who wants things done, and do not like to mess up with things they dont understand :T just please.
@Mpc46 Please see my first post on page one of this thread. I fully understand the need for this.
Like most of the current 3,800+ feature requests, this one shows no sign of being implemented yet.

@redqueen ... and when you need to uninstall & reinstall... Uffff!!!
Import/export user settings feature must be added in Vivaldi. It can save our a lot of our time when we have to create a new profile or setup Vivaldi on another machine.
