New tab selection options – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1503.4
@QuHno I'll try tomorrow on the work PC, thanks
@pesala Thanks for your comments! Though selection can be canceled by switching tabs, we are adding "Deselect Tabs" command to complement the others.
For tab selection, you might need to use keyboard shortcuts that don't interfere with text selection, so it works with focus on page or in input field as well.
Good point on sorting.
@miky Ctrl+Tab works, but Escape might be better.
If Ctrl+Shift+Right selects tabs to the right and Ctrl+Shift+Left selects tabs to the left, I would expect to be able to undo the last tab selected to the right by using Ctrl+Shift+Left, and vice versa if selecting tabs to the left.
Users could easily press either shortcut once too often if selecting many tabs, and they should not need to deselect all of the tabs then start over again if making a mistake.
Locked Speed Dials as an option would be an amazing and super beneficial feature that makes it easier on people with mental illness. Will we see that soon?
Is anyone else unable to open the download links in the following KB article if they middle-click on them to open them in a background tab?
For me, the links work fine if I left-click on them normally, and the URL's work fine if I copy and paste them into a new tab. They only fail when I middle-click on them.
When I middle-click on the links, it opens a new tab with the URL in the address bar, but the tab is empty and nothing ever appears to try to load.
But, this other video
still requires a faked UA to work
Ooh yes, me too, gulp:
Based on @ruario's post, hopefully next SS will resolve this natively. What a strange site DM is.
Middle clicking on the links results in a blank tab.
@pesala: So voting is getting nowhere. This feature really should be in and especially if the dragging portion is flawed.
There are at least 1,600 feature requests, and fewer than 20 developers, so progress is slow. I listed a few that should be Easy to Fix, but only the developers can know for sure. Voting is only a rough guide to how many users want a feature, not how likely it is to be fixed.
The context menu on bookmarks folder request was only recently implemented after at least 3 years of asking and over 200 votes.
@iAN-CooG and infact nothing changes disabling Use Hardware Acceleration when available
For those who have "Video decode: Unavailable" in vivaldi://gpu :
Does it change the behavior if you "Enable" it?
On my 8 y.o. test machine with on AMD HD3300 board graphics it works, so maybe you are lucky and it works too ...
That's the trick! Now dailymotion also plays on my work PC with just Intel onboard graphics!
@QuHno I am in the case you describe (Video decode: Unavailable on 2 old laptops).
And unfortunately not. I have activated all the flags (separately and then with some combinations): None of the flags related to gpu gives satisfaction.
Do we have a "Stack tabs by host" or "Stack current tab by host" command in the Quick Commands whenever we have more than one tab per domain?
@QuHno Even if you enable that function the office PC still does not work, the video card is an ATI HD2400, maybe you expect too much.
However, the dailymotion site does not seem to be done at its best.
Not for arbitrary Tabs - bit for the tab that is eventually in focus.
Just type "Create Tab Stack" into quick commands and and all tabs from that open domain are sorted into one tab stack.
... I wonder how that would work for arbitrary tabs that are not in focus:
Do you type the command and then the domain?
The pdf internal viewer plugin does not work here.
@Folgore101 Outch - yes, the HD2400 is a bit old, the HD3300 works though.
