    Hi,
    I'd like to have the feature that I can grab a tab and drop it out of the existing window, which will open a new window

    Requested roughly a thousand times in both the Forums and the Blog, and currently under heavy development, including a major UI re-write to make it possible.



  • Features that would make Vivaldi better:

    -add an option to edit bookmarks on speed dial screen.
    -you should be able to switch between speed dial folders with mouse wheel.
    -add a reader mode.



  • Really small change that would make my life so much easier:
    Be able to drag and drop from the download panel on the left to a webpage.

    Example: I have to send an image to a friend thought Whatsapp Web, I found an image from Google Images, I have to download the image, open the panel and drag and drop it into the conversation.

    Right now I have to open the folder where the file is located for EVERY FILE I want to send. Being able to drag and drop as you can do in Google Chrome or Firefox would be so useful.



  • There's an extension in chrome store called "download router" I'm using that I would love to see implemented natively and I'm sure people would love.
    The idea is setting different default download locations based on media type and/or domain origin. The idea being if I'm downloading content from say 4chan I want all of that in one folder separate from content from say 9gag, and I'd save videos in one folder and pictures to another or keep gifs away from jpgs.

    I'd also like to see those blank pages that show up for some downloads be ignored or prevented, most of them are good about closing once the download starts but firefox and chrome are both pretty good about not giving them focus away from the current tab. the dialogue shows up in the current tab rather than changing focus. I use a firefox extension to keep blank screen tabs for download scripts from even opening to begin with and it's something I feel every browser should have built in.



  • Just got Vivaldi and I'm loving it so far. Opera was my favorite browser when I was a kid and I always had so much fun customizing every little thing (I was a weird kid) and I didn't realize how much I've missed that using Chrome and Safari and Firefox over the last several years.

    Anyway, this is a pretty useless suggestion but it would be cool if the background of the new tab page had an option for parallax scrolling. Like the iPhone wallpaper effect, so its kind of zoomed in and pans around the full image based on your cursor position. That would look neat and also fix the problem of bookmarks covering parts of the background.

    That would be cool, actually. If you download FVD Speed Dial Chrome extension, you can get something kind of like that, where the background moves along with your mouse movements.



  • It would be great if Vivaldi could display history in a panel.



  • @emilcabaj:

    add panel chrome://history
    a voila
    it's not super clean or anything but it works for what I know you're doing because I'm doing the exact same thing.



  • Please allow syncing settings, favorites, open tabs … makes life easier 🙂



  • Hi,
    Please can you add for Print Preview a scale option as per FF?
    This is useful when the page would otherwise be cropped at 100%

  • Some feature requests after my first few weeks of usage:

    • Re-ordering tabs in a tab stack by dragging or some other visual and intuitive way
    • Moving top-level Speed Dial buttons into Speed Dial folders via drag-and-drop
    • Distinctive Speed Dial folder icons composed somehow from the first 2x2, 3x3 or simply all icons of the buttons contained inside the folder (now all folders look the same and I have to slowly read the folder name below to tell which folder is which - very ugly)


  • Will you allow to change page thumbnails in Start Page for user uploaded? In old Opera I could do it manualy in AppData folder in a way to paste image, delete the previous auto-generated thumbnail and rename it exactly same way.
    I created like 15 images 270x150 which helped me not to misclick in small thumbnails 🙂
    If you will not add the feature to upload the image, can you at least say me if there is some way how to do it manualy? For instance by overwriting a thumbnail file?
    Thanks,
    Matt

    Since they will probably add the feature before too long, it's hardly worth the (considerable) effort of customising them manually. It's early days yet (version 1.3) so much more will come later.



  • Would it be possible to have the option of removing the X and refresh buttons on SD thumbnails, and disabling the refresh button and F5 on the Speed Dial. Yesterday, I accidentally pressed refresh twice and had to create a new profile with everything in it. I would like the ability to lock the SD down so I can't mess it up. It would be nice to lock them in place too so you can't move them.



  • The marker for unread tabs is very hard to see when the option to use accent color on window is used.
    There should be an option to change its color to prevent this.



  • Opening of a bunch of urls in differnet tabs at same time must be nice

  • One more functionality I need (also missing from today's Opera):

    • Read and display MHT files.


  • Personal in Preferences, to auto-fill forms with personal information
    Add in context menu for text field "Insert Personal", "Insert Note"
