Some Opera 12.x features, please



  • Hello V Team! I was using Opera from 6 till 12.x, and its still installed on my Linux box! I am a kind of power user, V is running 12h a day, w/o major problems. Currently I am missing three features from Opera 12.x times. [b]Better integration for middle mouse button: [/b] [u] [li] mark an URL as text (no hyperlink)[/li] [li] click somewhere on the same page with middle mouse button[/li] [li] new tab opens in background with URL (as middle mouse button is the insert feature of the X-Server)[/li] [/u] [b]Handling of middle mouse button[/b] [u] [li] marking some text to be used on different page (e.G. postal address)[/li] [li] open a new tab, entering e.g. "maps.google.de"[/li] [li] trying to paste address marked in first step with middle mouse button will no longer contain the address, but part of the URL in most cases (as address bar gets focus, marks part of the URL while typing etc)[/li] [li]=> Maybe prevent address bar content from getting marked while typing? Possible to avoid to copy address bar content to X-Servers clipboard?[/li] [/u] [b]Rendering new pages in background[/b] [u] [li] Most likely the absolute opposite from the new "hibernate background tabs" feature ...[/li] [li] I often configure some web application with many custom fields[/li] [li] I click on "edit" link on every element with middle mouse button to open config page in background tab (works good!)[/li] [li] Sometimes up to 30 elemnts (config pages) at the same time! (works good!)[/li] [li] navigating to all config pages with one key shortcuts ("1" for left, "2" for right), (works good!)[/li] [li] Only drawback: the page is not ready/rendered when opening the page for the first time.[/li] [li] => I would like the pages get completely loaded AND rendered immediately, right after clicking the middle mouse button. I can accept high CPU load once, but waiting approx a second for every page that is open for the first time until its rendered is boring ... [/li] [li] I already tried different settings on the options page w/o any effect [/li] [/u] Maybe the last point is not Linux specific, but I have no Windows available any more to check :) Thank you for your fantastic work so long!

  • @hook:

    • trying to paste address marked in first step with middle mouse button will no longer contain the address, but part of the URL in most cases (as address bar gets focus, marks part of the URL while typing etc)

    I wrote about this on this forum a while back. It's the most annoying thing in Vivaldi for me at the moment. I'm sort of glad that someone else has noticed it… Would be worth an official bug report.



  • Looks like one point was fixed in 1.3.551.17
    [Linux] URL autocompletion overwrites clipboard content (VB-5437)

    Thanks!
