@gaurav27 I would also like to have the opportunity to set the color of the Opera. And in addition, automatic switching between two themes (light-dark) based on the hour. If You want write in this forum.
+1, they got away from the web-browser version, and went to a windows program. I'm sure there was a specific reason for it. But that might score against getting it into the sidebar of Opera.
The search box (in the speed dial page) can be turned off; searching from the address bar can be set to one of the other pre-installed search engines. The only way to change the speed dial search to a different site is to convince the browser you are in a different country - and the choices available then may not be available in mainland China. (There are instructions for how to manually edit your location in the Frequently Asked Questions thread.)
@azot In both light and dark theme, the active tab has a different color than inactive. However, Opera still has only two preset appearance settings to choose from. I appreciate the functionality of Opera, so I do not intend to change my browser. However, in this respect, the Vivaldi viewer has more settings - a lot of color settings of individual elements (creating your own theme in many respects) and even automatic switching between 2 themes based on the time. Opera could have similar settings, but no, not because it's hard to distinguish between active and inactive cards. Just because it has richer settings.
Wanted to come back here and say that if Opera prides itself on offering options and customization to its users, it really should follow up on this suggestion, and get rid of the outline of the sidebar when it is disabled. I don't know what sgunhouse meant when he (or she?) said it "isn't disabled." What I would like to see is a totally clean interface when I am on a blank tab or a tab with just the speed dials (with or without wallpapers) that does not show anything that reminds users of how the sidebar is (or could be) there. Great browser otherwise. Thanks, and I hope the developers will follow up.
I believe this has been suggested before.
Opera is a wonderful browser. I just started using it, after a few years of Chrome and many many years of Firefox use.
I feel Opera is better than both of them.
One thing though: when installing Chrome (e.g. within VM), then it adds the add-ons automatically.
Very handy and something I hope/wish developers will add to Opera.
Positively meant suggestion.
