Just have a single sidebar

    The only reason I don't use the sidebar extensions is because it means having 2 sidebars. It looks out of place and is clunky. Here's a crude, quick mock-up of how it could look like: https://i.imgur.com/2xHwi78.png Vivaldi handles having sidebars with the internal browser features + web panels nicely. Also, a simple way of adding web panels would be very welcome.

      Perhaps a button could be added to the Reborn UI sidebar - when clicked a pop-up would merge containing icons of installed extension bar extensions?

      I dunno! But sidebar issue should be addressed ASAP :/

      Let's email to the Chinese?

      Sidebar API perhaps needs some redo if it's going straight to Reborn sidebar without middleman-solution.

      Perhaps support middleman-solution for some time until most extension bar extensions are made into the upcoming system?

      One thing is for sure: Reborn sidebar is sort of limited space-wise... So solution is needed. Like: grouped extension bar icons and grouped instant messenger icons.

      I like everything in the picture; also they way the opera icon and the open/close sidebar toggle button is put. Looks much better.

        Hi andissprinkis, you may also be interested in this comment link to remove Opera sidebar from screen when unpinned?

        Vivaldi moves the unpinned sidebar from screen and auto-resizes the page, where Opera's unpinned sidebar presently remains dimmed on screen. As both browsers are built on Chromium, I believe Opera could also have what I consider to be a customisable feature?
