How do I make Opera more like Win 8.1 Metro IE , Touch + Fullscreen in Win 10

  • Metro IE = The touch based version of Internet Explorer for Win 8.1, very much different than the desktop version of Internet Explorer.

    So I'm one of the few users liked and used Win 8.1 to it's fullest. Win 10 is a complete disaster on Tablets I MUCH prefer how Metro IE worked which gave you a full screen web browsing experience, you would use swipe gestures to pull up address bard and favorites and settings but while you were web browsing you had a full screen experience.

    So if I'm ever going to upgrade to Win 10 on my tablet I need a web browser that can simulate how I use the web with Metro IE.

    I've played around with Opera and it seem to be the closest I can come to Metro IE mainly because of speed dial which I used alot of in Metro IE, in Metro IE you could swipe up to see your frequent sites and I used that alot.

    So I've have tried the full screen mode in Opera and it is really glitchy without a keyboard. I usually get stuck in full screen mode and can't swipe down from the top to get out of full screen mode.

    What I need is opera to be in full screen and a way to easily swipe down from the top to bring back the address bar/Favorite menu and then swipe again to make it disappear.

    Metro IE also had a cool feature where you could surf the web like a book, swipe to the left to go the next web page on a site, swipe to the right to go back a page. Is their any extension in opera that does this?

  • Any suggestions?

  • Bueller?

    Not sure but i think Opera doesn't do it.

  • Are their any extensions/Themes that could possibly do this?
