Please add option to share link

  • This should be super easy to add and actually is the only reason I still use Firefox vs opera

    On any page if you press and hold on a url link the context menu pops up with

    Open in New tab
    Open in private tab
    Copy link address

    And so on

    Please at to the context menu the option

    Share url address

    Thus people can share right away a url via email or SMS or whatever

    Currently people have to copy the address and then share it by opening the app they want to use

    Its a super small code change with lots of benefits

  • It's more easier with Opera than you think. Just tap the 3 dots menu and then tap the icon with the 3 dots connected to each other. Then you can select the app you want to send your url with.

    In order to do this, one has to open each link he wants to "share", and it's very inconvenient to share more than one link. For example, I use Pocket to save links to read later, and in Opera I would have to wait while each page opens, and then I'd have to close it or go back, while in other browsers I can just long press on each link -> "Share" -> "Save to Pocket".

    Why would someone want to share something that s/he didn't see yet?

    The person opens a link, find its content interesting and share it. That's simple.

  • @slim-shaggy In your case I guess it wouldn't be that bad if Opera would include a share option in the offline pages menu.

  • Copying the link by whatever means requires multiple clumsy steps and doesn't create an email with the page title in the subject line. For me not having this functionality is a dealbreaker, for me Opera is currently in a "Does is work for me or not" status - if it doesn't make sense soon it's back to exploring other available browser options.

    How does it make sense that the browser on my phone is more convenient and capable at sharing than the browser on my laptop? On my phone (Chrome) I can browse a topic and rapidly do any of a number of things with the page (save it, email it, email to myself, email to a notes program, email to my ereader, etc., all with a page title).

  • Not seeing a "three dots menu".

    Then you have the "not updated yet" Opera version (37.0.x.) In this case you have to tap the red "O", then the icon with the 3 connected dots.
