Always on top

  • Self explanatory. First level menu item to make Opera window always stay on top. There are other solutions that claim to do this but why not implement such a simple functionality to the browser itself ?

  • Please read this

  • I suppose the moderator asks me to elaborate my reasoning, since -as it seems- there is no similar suggestion.

    Let me present an example:

    Suppose you have a 2 monitor setup.
    You run Visual Studio and use both monitors: UI on the left monitor, code on the right.
    You want to quickly browse the internet for e.g. the syntax of a command or a code snippet.
    You fire up your favorite browser (=>Opera) on the left monitor.
    You click on the right monitor and because Opera is not "always on top" the UI window appears over Opera.

    Ideally, the always-on-top functionality should be provided via a first-level option on the upper-left menu or the right-click menu.

    Thanks.

    Nope, it was because you hadn't explained why that feature should be added and how it would benefit the users.

    You fire up your favorite browser (=>Opera) on the left monitor.
    You click on the right monitor and because Opera is not "always on top" the UI window appears over Opera.

    I didn't get why it would happen. If you start a program, it will take the focus unless you habe changed some setting on the OS or in another program, at least on Windows.

  • That's exactly what I am stating. In my example, Visual Studio will take the focus on both monitors, as it should, because it has windows on both monitors.

    The thing is, that I want Opera to stay on top on the left monitor, while I work on Visual Studio on the right monitor. That's what "always-on-top" does. What is missing is the AoT functionality from Opera itself.
