Feature request: more powerful "paste and go"



  • Hi there, While waiting for the usual Paste-and-Go item in the address-bar context menu to be implemented, I'd like to ask the Vivaldi team to make the feature a bit more powerful. What about allowing for the "Paste-and-Go" feature available in the context menu [i]everywhere[/i]? If you do Paste-and-Go in the empty space of the tab bar, Vivaldi would open a new tab and take the user to the URL pasted. If you do Paste-and-Go in the main window area, that tab would be replaced with the pasted URL. On any browser, one of the little annoyances is that you need two to three steps to go to the URL you are pasting: 1) open a new tab by clicking on the new tab button; 2) move your mouse cursor over to the address bar and paste the URL; 3) hit the Return (Enter) key. (I'm aware that some browsers offer shortcuts for this kind of things. But basically you need at least two sets of workflows for the same things; one set for the mouse-only mode and the other for the keyboard-only mode.) Regards, Ryo



  • That's a good suggestion.
    I was getting used to first create a new tab and then to paste-and-go but a fast way to "past-and-go-in-new-tab/window" would be great especially when selecting a non-click-able URL on a page.

    Thank you for your support. I actually have to deal with a lot of non-click-able URLs.

    That's mainly 1) because I have to deal with URLs written in PDF files, where hyperlinking isn't all that common, and 2) because I always have to use two browsers (because I use two Google accounts in parallel) and copy URLs mainly from the other browser onto Vivaldi. (Well, if the other browser has a menu item "Open URL with . . .", then copying wouldn't be necessary but the only browser which I know has that feature is Opera 12.x .)

  • Quickest way possible so far: Press Ctrl+T, press Ctrl+Shift+V. Yon can keep Ctrl pressed between shortcuts, so that's pretty instant. :)



  • Yes surely P&G needs improvements, starting from it's absence from search box and other input fields.



  • Maybe solution similar to Maxthon's - right click on +(new tab) to paste and go in new tab,

    Yes, Exactly !

    Last year, I developed extension buttons for Mozilla browsers, to let me do exactly that, ALL WITH ONE CLICK, if I first copy the desired URL to the clipboard.

    BTW, it's called 'Paste and Go Buttons' - not yet released.

    Clicking one button Creates a new tab, Pastes from the clipboard, Opens that URL, and Focuses on the new tab.

    Clicking another button does the same, except into the currently active focused tab.

    Vivaldi does not yet support custom buttons, so I cannot do the same for it, plus, I have some learning yet to do, regarding how the Chromium platform codes some things differently than I already know about Mozilla.

    Yes! and paste-and-go not only on the "+" button but also on the empty space in the tab bar (as I suggested in my original posting).



  • @greenenemy:

    ….Right click on '+' (new tab button) to paste and go in new tab.

    That could be interesting, because it would not need a separate button, BUT, ONLY if I can move the combined button to wherever I want it, as I dislike it at its default location in most browsers, including in Vivaldi.

  • What about to P&G for any form then?
    For example, it would be great to paste text and submit search form via 1 aciton on any page
