:tools: Scheduled maintenance

Heads up! Downtime for the Forums, related to the NodeBB upgrade, is planned for Thursday, December 14, starting from 10:00 UTC.
Please make sure to finish all your posts before this time. The downtime should only last for a few minutes.

We need more functions in Coast!

  • Hello Opera Coast team :)

    At the beginning I would like to tell that your browser is extremely innovative and pleasantly easy to use. Coast is the prettiest browser I have ever seen! Good job guys!

    but...
    There are a few things I am missing and couple of bugs/unwanted actions I found in every day use.

    First of all: I really miss 'open in new tab' button after long press on screen. Because copying url and pasting it on home screen of Coast is problematic. And sometimes (I am curious if not always) opening new tab - with earlier copied url (http://some_page.abc/subpage.html); replaces main page tab (http://some_page.abc/) - please fix this bug.

    Second: your idea about not having history is just dumb. Sorry... some people need to see their previous activity (if I want to visit page I found yesterday, I can't find it in Coast).

    And the private mode... I know that your concept was - every tab you close is removed from history (every file connected with this site should be removed) but when you close tab with site that shouldn't be removed from history are all files of the site removed? That makes no sense because cookies aren't removed then AND site you wanted to keep private can be still found in Spotlight search! That's why adding private mode is needed.

    I suppose adding history tile on very left side of Opera Coast (on the left side 'for you' tile) is good idea - when you press on it, you receive little bigger window with all your activity. Long press on specified site history gives you options to share url, copy url, send it via Social Media apps and etc.

    My suggestion about adding private mode and close all opened tabs is to put those options on the left & right bottom side in three dot '...' menu.

    There is one more thing: refreshing sites after no recent activity on it (e.g while reading some stuff on the other site and going back to previous tab) - you should increase the time after which site is refreshed.

  • I could add: disabling Opera Coast ad on shared links, but... you should have already notice that this thing annoys people (read two threads below mine).

    Sorry if I did any mistakes in that feedback - English isn't my native lang.
