Taskbar download progress indicator for Linux
Is it possible to add the animated vivaldi icon taskbar loading indicator in linux same as in windows ?
modedit changed title, more descriptive
@Gwen-Dragon : not during page load but during downloading a file

@RDistel Could you post a screen shot - is there a windows-exclusive vivaldi feature? I really have no idea of what I am missing...
@jumpsq : I'm not able to post a screenshot because i left windows and went to Linux.
The animation is the same as for the nemo-icon during copying a file.

Thank you, @Gwen-Dragon !
@RDistel Yes, that would certainly be nice, but I'd assume that such a feature would have to be implemented for Gnome, KDE, XFCE, Unity, [i3, awesome, sway] ... each (or is there some common API that all these Desktop Environments/Window Managers use?).
You got my upvote on this, but if this would take too much work, maybe there would be alternative ways to display download progress (e.g. a progress bar integrated into the tab that started the download/linked to the file) outside the downloads panel. And there is certainly much space to improve downloads management in general.
// Edit: I made a topic about the more general problem of current download status readability.

I searched on this topic a bit and found out that X apps should be able to use
_NET_WM_XAPP_PROGRESSwindow property (I found this only for Cinnamon, but to me this seems universal enough that also other DEs (in fact, panels) should support it). About Wayland (and others) we don't have to care for now, because Chromium is X-only now AFAIK.

Take my up vote for this too.
