In Opera 12.18 we could assign more than one single-key shortcut to any command.
This opens up the options for assigning commands that are quick to execute without pressing modifier keys and easy to remember, e.g.
- a,b = Toggle Address Bar
- b,b = Toggle Bookmarks Bar
- s,b = Toggle Status Bar
- t,d = Open file:///O:/Documents/ToDo.txt
- v,f = Go to Vivaldi Forums
- v,s = Go to Vivaldi Snapshots
- v,t = Go to Vivaldi Team Blog, etc.
Accessibility for those with disabilities is important.
If combined with the ability to launch programs or go to URLs, it is a great aid to productivity.
I recall using this feature very heavily back in Opera 12. It's been sorely missed in Vivaldi.
This would also lay the groundwork for users to make their browsers more vim-like, for example adding "g,g" to scroll to the top of the page (see https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/2024/vim-like-keyboard-interface).
