mirror open stacks and stack names across all devices including possibly mobile
Updated post (at request of moderator):
Further to some requests asking to mirror open tabs across all synced devices (see two links below), also mirror stacks and stack names.
That's it. TY.
Have an option where all tabs, stacks and stack labels are mirrored across all devices including optionally mobile. This means if I open, close or update a tab on device A, the same action should be replicated on all other synced devices (sessions).
This provides for a seamless work centric experience. Currently, when I shift from work to home or device A to B, I have to "hunt" for tabs that I am working in on another device and then open them individually.
Note that there are times when an instance of Vivaldi crashes losing all stack groupings and stack labels. This needs to be managed so that a subsequent restart restore does not end up syncing de-stacks on other devices.
Open Tabs are Sync'd but Stacks.
This has been already asked.
Look at the Forum Search or here.
Maybe to Sync them to Mobile is missing, so you will need to post in Mobile or Modify this one.
About loosing Stacks,
You can restore them from Bin (usually).
@Zalex108 thanks for replying.
Do I need to explain more clearly?
In mirroring, the exact same set of open tabs and stacks are mirrored and opened and stacked across all devices. If I close tab x on device a, then this tab is also closed on all other devices automatically. Similarly for tabs that are opened and updated.
In the current sync set up you can have different tabs open on different devices and one has to explicitly hunt for and open a tab that is already open on another device. It's not a seamless work experience.
Mirroring provdes a fluid work experience across all devices with zero friction. Sadly, no browser offers this at the moment.
Same situation, look at there.
There are lots of Request.
And so on.
@Zalex108 the links only partially cover what i am asking. i am also requesting the syncing of stacks and stack labels. this is important if a user has many tabs open. without syncing stacks and stack labels, the user is left hunting again.
given that there are so many related requests, perhaps its time for the moderator or Vivaldi to create one master request that can be voted on... or whatever process works for Vivaldi - and archive all related deprecated requests.
Vote for the existing ones and add just the non existent to the suggestion.
Edit the OP with that.
@Kunjan what you're asking could possibly require remote access to the other machine (so the browser actively opens a tab), which may represent a major security risk, if you want it to happen in real time, rather than when you open the browser, to have the tabs status updated from the cloud.
Have you considered screen mirroring or remote desktop access software instead?
@derei thank you for raising a very good point.
Screen sharing is not an option. (1) Same security issues - someone could see the unattended device and since the browser is being used all the time, it could mean that (2) the device is open to much more abuse and (3) the process of connecting to a remote etc totally ruins the UX.
Also many people use large resolution screens on one main machine and then may wish to access via mobile or smaller desktop device. screen sharing from dekstop to mobile is hopeless. and screen sharing from large high resolution to smaller lower effective resolution is messy with window management.
This is how I would see it possiby working. Assume 3 devices, A, B, C. Assume device A is being actively used. Device B is in hibernate, locked or completely off and C is being used by someone else.
For device B (off, hibernate, locked), the browser open tabs and stack will only get updated when the user logs in and access the broswer. any tabs requiring login will remain at the login page as session ids would be different.
For device C (someone else using device), the browser would update, but it would be the primary users choice to allow this (same as when a browser is logged into on a public PC at the library for instance).
However, once again, for secure sites like banks etc, or sites requiring two factor auth such sessions will stop at the login stage on device C and go no further as the session ids will not be initiated. i.e. the act of entering login information would only work on device A. With screen sharing this security does not exist.
With device C, if the user has a "remember me" flag set on any site which requires only a simple login password, there is a possibility of security risk, however I believe that Vivaldi can use the sync functionality to block all such aiuto logins on secondary devices.
