  • Users & Developers:
    I am really excited to finally be able to retire Opera 12.17, which I continue to use until Vivaldi dev supersedes it.
    Security by obscurity is over????

    I need an Opera Feature!

    12.17:
    Tools/Advanced/Cookies
    reveals a list of all cookies on-board, and we can selectively delete them.

    Vivaldi
    1.1.453.47
    Tools/Clear Private Data

    This brings us to a screen where we can select to erase all cookies or none.

    I am/have been using Opera to build my websites. As part of this I need to retain my site's cookies while killing the obnoxious ones. Opera provided this granularity and I hope Vivaldi will do so too!

    **SECOND REQUEST
    **
    Another Opera 12 feature was
    TWO CLICKS TO VIEW PAGE SOURCE.

    Heck, I can't even seem to find how to view just plain old source text using Vivaldi.
    Being able to INSTANTLY view source code was a big (and simple) advantage of OO (Old Opera) over all the other browsers…

    I would love to be able to easily and quickly view source code using Vivaldi.

    UPDATE: Right Click page for Source View....

    **Third Request
    **
    I have found this feature:
    View Bar / Author Mode / Class and ID
    to be very helpful when I construct and edit links between web pages. Being able to quickly reveal the anchors makes this quick and easy.

    GENERALLY:
    I also want to thank the developers for continuing the legacy of Opera's fine-grained excellence. I truly hope you succeed in keeping the decisions about what features each user needs in their own hands.

    I would hope a business model making powerful features easily accessible to all users would be a winner, but that is not necessarily true in today's world of spoon-fed gratifications. But don't worry, I got your back!

    PS: Your import feature kicks ass! Good Work!



  • Try: Right-click, View source (Ctrl U).

  • That is so awesome.

    Thanks for pointing it out… it is feature that's more informative than OO...

    I have taken some time to explore Vivaldi, added Ghostery, AdBlocker+, and to mess around with the interface. Vivaldi is a fine combo of new and old styles and features that is pretty darn cool.

    I was none too happy when OO (Old Opera) bit the dust, but now I am thinking that that was an example of, "creative destruction," necessary for the next step in the evolution of this, this "unique approach" of OO's core team.

    Thanks!



  • Thanks, I found it while messing around, too.
    Is there going to be anything like the "View Bar?"

    I found the double-arrow feature next to the magnification slide on Vivaldi, but it lacks the "find," "cascade," and "class and ID" features available across the well-deployed "View Bar" in OldOpera. I find these to be effective tools well-deployed in their own toolbar.

    EDIT
    WOW. After using and enjoying studying the workings of Vivaldi I am really impressed. Most Everything in O12 is somewhere logical and even more effectively deployed (mostly) in Vivaldi!
    The cascading control through tab stacking with the ability to easily save configurations through "saved sessions" is a real time-saver, and I believe makes the user more effective.

    Still can't find "class and id" feature, but I need a reason to keep O12 running as a backup browser.

    Again, thanks for pursuing this granular approach to browsing.

    Thanks! The MHT fix worked. The URL for the mail-page extension was not visible in your posting, but when I quoted it it was visible.

  • Bookmarks icon in toolbar (like Opera used to have)



  • 1. ability to drag & drop (and right click on) bookmarks inside of folders on Bookmarks Toolbar

    2. folders on Bookmarks Toolbar open on hover (optionally?)



  • @oldmaven:

    1. ability to save in MHT, MAFF, or similar single file

    i dunno why this is still active by flags, it should be a option in Config Menu.



  • +1 to that, quite why Vivaldi squirreled them away out of sight beats me.



  • Use middle mouse clicking to open links to new tabs even from drop down menus. And open all links in folder option.

    I have loads of bookmarks and to have them in some sort of order I also have loads of folders. Because I have loads of links and folders I also have loads of folders inside folders. This creates a problem when I want to quickly open 3 links from one folder that is buried may in couple of folders below because to open those three links I need to navigate three times to the same location because you can only open one link at a time.

    So for example with the bookmark bar you can have folders in it. But when you middle mouse click on a link it closes the drop down menu and opens the link in new tab.

    First of all I think the menu logic should respect the vivaldi setting I have for opening new links with middle mouse button (open them in new tab in background). If I have set it that middle mouse buttton should open the link in new tab on the background it should do that. Now it doesn't.

    Secondly it should not close the drop down menu unless I use the left side button of the mouse. Middle mouse should allow me to click open multiple links without closing the drop down menu.

    Third I really like in opera12 when there was an "open all links in this folder" option in all folders. In opera12 you could not use the middle mouse button either to open individual links from a folder to new tab but at least you could open all links in a folder easily and then close those you don't need.



  • You can open all links in a folder here, as well.



  • @Ayespy:

    How?



  • Right-click on a folder and select "open." There is also a setting under Settings/Bookmarks to give you to option to limit the number of bookmarks that can be opened at once, in case your system has limited memory or processing power, or both.

    That only works with the bookmarks tab. I don't want to use the bookmarks tab. I want to use the bookmarks bar which is below the adress bar.



  • Ah. Yeah, Bookmark Manger, and Bookmark Panel, both. it works only for top level folders on the Bookmark Bar, but MANY of the functions for sub-folders on the Bookmark Bar are yet to be written, so they don't work yet. They are being gradually added, as developers get time.



  • The Vivaldi browser is great and I'm so close to replacing Chrome with it. The only thing I can think of that it needs is the ability to drag a tab off the window and create and new window with that tab. Then be able to snap that tab back onto the window it came from. I use multiple monitors for work and this feature is CRUCIAL for my job. You can right click and make this happen, but this is a browser for power users. This way takes time.

    It is good to hear they are probably coming at some point.

    I wonder if it is possible to create shortcuts yourself that open multiple links at one click? Or maybe there is an addon that does something like that.?
