Another UI disability - page loading
Hi everyone, Yet again I am here to report an important UI feature that is missing from Vivaldi. TLDR: we absolutely need to set the mouse cursor to the 'loading' state when the page is loading. Actually this is a bug. A Chromium bug #325978 to be precise. I (and some other people) have already reported this when the bug first appeared in Chrome Canary more then 2 years ago - https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=325978 Basically when the user clicks a link on the page and it starts loading - THE MOUSE CURSOR IS THE CLOSEST THING TO THEIR FOCUS POINT. It must change to the loading state. [img]http://i.imgur.com/2CqEmNLh.png[/img] I mean, its been more then two years since Chromium broke this feature and I still can't get used to it. I still find myself having to look up at the tab icon from time to time - just to make sure the page is loading. This is a real show stopper. Luckily, Vivaldi is based on HTML/CSS/JS - so there shouldn't be any Blink/Webkit tinkering involved in order to solve this. I really hope this request gets heard and Vivaldi yet once becomes the only browser that does things properly. Thanks!
This is a real show stopper.
:silly: I can see that the behaviour is not the same as Opera 12.17 and IE11, but Firefox also seems to do the same.
I will happily agree with you that this is a bug, but a show-stopper? Are you being serious? If the page failed to load at all that might be a serious bug, but a mouse cursor not changing as expected is no more than a trivial bug.

I know this might seem like a stretch, but if you wanna have great user experience - then not having good visual feedback is definitely a show stopper (at least in my book)

From technical point of view - yes it is trivial. But from UX point of view - it is very important.
And yeah, FireFox users have always been 'in the darkness' with regards to this issue.
