Non-Official Opera browser feature survey

  • This survey intends to quantify the needs of the users of the Opera browser. The missing features listed below are collected from the Opera desktop blog and forum.

    IMPORTANT! This is NOT an official Opera survey. There is no guarantee that the company will take this into account in decision makings.

    To keep the results as valid as they can be, please, fill the survey only once! You can save the link of the survey and edit your answers any time. None of your personal informations will be recorded in the results, only the answers you have given.

    I would like to make it a live survey, so features can be removed or new ones can be added later. (If you think something is missing, comment in this topic, or message Nekomajin43 on the desktop blog!) I know it won't be a representative result, but it may show the trends and the top most wanted features. You can see the results after you submit your answers.

  • @leocg
    Please make this pinned on the top until vote system is provided.

  • :yes:

  • What is the meaning of the option:

    "Both, to allow customization"

    Is the way to customize the browser¿?
    Is for non dev users?
    Like OPresto settings edit¿?

  • "Sign in to your Google account to fill out this form" - but if I don't have google account, what then?

    And RE: "This is NOT an official Opera survey. There is no guarantee that the company will take this into account in decision makings." - do you think Opera devs take any results of official surveys into account?

  • Please make this pinned on the top

    There is no need for it at the moment.

  • do you think Opera devs take any results of official surveys into account?

    Yes, they do.

    It means a native implementation and the possibility to use extensions for the same goal, but with a different approach.

  • I answered.
    But most were not important, some I didn't understand. Something important wasn't there. Like that I could play videos without stuttering: it's not a feature, but it's an inherited Chromium problem; WebKit Midori does not have any stuttering trouble, at all.
    I mean it's important to me so that I could make Opera my main browser. Because otherwise, it's fast, loads and renders most sites easily... Any minor customisation problems are outshined by that.
    So I mean the main (and only as of right now) thing is for the browser to handle all the content WWW can offer.
    (I mean, well. My computer is a bit aged, but other browsers handle the content in question, right? Opera doesn't. This is the problem.)

    And wouldn't make sense in a survey about features.

  • Everyone who find something not clear enough in the survey, please post it here to help me fix it!

  • [Survey item Suggestion]

    Arrange tabs
    Warning exit dialog

    Would be nice to be added to Opera.
    May be add it to the survey? (Don't know if "the edit" it's just for the responses or even for the questions)

  • What do you mean by arrange tabs?

    And huge thanks for the exit warning. I miss it the most, but totally forgot.

  • I would suggest that you do not demand that people have a Google account in order to take the survey. There is no way that I am ever going to get a Google account.

  • I am ever going to get a Google account.

    Does that means that the others are safe? :rolleyes:

  • Mistaken post... :rolleyes:

  • Since it is not an official survey, what is the point?

    The link is not accessible to everyone. When using a VPN, it wants you to create an account, which makes it seem as if you are trying to collect something else (referrals; affiliate programme?). I still would not create an account.

  • The point of the survey being closed is to prevent flooding and so falsifying the results. But your points are valid, so I guess I will open it. I will update the survey with a few new features later this week. I will post a notification here.

    About the survey, I've already got positive feedback from the devs. No promises though.

  • Have a look here maybe some are worth to be voted in the survey.

  • I'm really pleased with that survey.

    Few words for devs 🙂
    For me, as a "tabs manager extension" developer, a very important thing would be to hide tabs bar like I can do in Vivaldi and Firefox (in Firefox it's still not possible from Web extension, but it can be done with XUL, like in "Hide Tabbar" extension, but I know they work on it). https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1208596#

    Tabs stacking would be a second thing, especially if tabs could have something like parentId, visible via API for extensions, for example to use native grouping, when you switch between various "tabs manager" extensions, all groups could be the same across all of them. That would be sweeeeet. For now chrome API has only openerTabId, which is lost after browser restart.

    I would suggest to contact guys from Vivaldi, maybe you can make a compatible cross platform API for tabs stacking? What you think? Maybe contact Mozilla WebExtensions team as well? You know that Firefox folks made sidepanel API based on yours right?
    I'm working on TreeTabs extension for Opera and Vivaldi, after some small adjustments in css it works great in Firefox as well.
    Developer's scream: "Unify the Web extensions API" 🙂
    And btw. As extra widescreens gain more and more popularity, sidebars finally make sense.
