Re: Continue running background apps when Opera is closed
Opera startup time may be a deciding factor on desktop PC when you need to open and close browser frequently.
I, as a programmer need to do it very often: for testing my web applications, for referring documentation and so on.
It takes me a couple of seconds to start up Opera each time. Recently I switched to Chrome and it's way faster.
I mean - it's a huge waste of time having to wait those couple of seconds over and over again during the working day.
So the feature is important - for me such slow startup may be a deal breaker for a browser.
So no - Opera start is not fast enough for some usage scenarios. Chrome is. Vivaldi is.
We need this option. Opera uses Chromium code base. So the option seems to be already there, just probably pointlessly disabled.
No other browser I have used has a trash bin for bookmarks. Why does Opera need one? It is just a nuisance, because bookmarks that have been discarded will keep coming back if you do not empty it after deleting the bookmarks.
Just resurrecting this one as it's quite important feature for me. What's more, it seems possible to enable Kerberos by running Opera from cmd, so it seems it's only UI missing.
open -n -a 'Opera.app' --args --auth-server-whitelist="*.example.com"
Agreed. But I also would like to see the flow integrated i.e. the normal Opera Browser on i.e. Android. Why do I need a separate Browser for this function? This way it would be more like a sync and therefore many more devices should be possible.
Oh, and one thing i missed, it should be #5
5. : When the search site opens with your search, and you change some keywords on the site, this new search should be synchronized back with the seach bar.
So if you type in the search bar "test" press enter, your default search engine opens with the search prefilled with "test". If you change the search "test" in "testing" on the website, it should change the shown word in the searchbar to "testing", too.
This was the function of this addon: https://github.com/legege/searchboxsync
