Request: History sidebar. (I almost can't believe there isn't one)



  • Hi! So I was looking for a history sidebar, but apparently there isn't one. It doesn't make sense to me. You have implemented a sidebar and you have bookmarks, downloads, etc there. But no history. Why the omission. Bookmarks and history are the only two things I used (would use) a sidebar for.



  • The Chrome history comes for free (Ctrl + H).

    A history tab has to be coded, so it's a matter of priorities. I use Notes and Downloads far more than History, but I wiould also like to see a History Tab, in due course. Info, Links, and Windows panels too will probably come one day.

    Add a webpanel with the address vivaldi://history/ and you will get your beloved history on the side.
    Sort of.

    Hi!
    Indeed. The "sort of" part, is very true. Needing to scroll horizontally rather sucks. There aren't any view options, etc

    Vivaldi is not nearly complete. Vivaldi's own version of "History" is being written. It has, in fact been being worked on for months. It will include a History Panel. This is a LOT of code and tons of testing and debugging. It's not like writing a code line "show history in a panel" and referencing a custom icon. It's a whole application. Please be patient.



  • You can also set the History Panel to have a "Separate Width" so that it can be wider than other panels. That will reduce the need for horizontal scrolling.

    The best policy is to wait patiently. This request is currently under development. See item number 10 in the Feature Requests thread.

    That's good to hear at least.
