: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.

Non-Official Opera browser feature survey

  • 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.

  • [Survey item Suggestion]

    Tab switching with mouse wheel + mouse right button

  • [Survey item Suggestion]

    Save tabs as SD folder with with time and date

    Being that there is no sessions, auto add time and date to the folders name (like History entries).

    Despite preferring Sessions Manager, but until "decide" about that, would be an easy and useful way to keep "session tabs".

    Many big features but few small details.

  • [Survey item Suggestion]

    Integrate pinned sidebar, extension bar with normal sidebar

  • Survey should have few questions about the most commented feature requests.

  • Survey should have few questions about the most commented feature requests.

    What do you mean?

  • What do you mean?

    I mean that including too much question in a survey may not be a good thing to do.

    Too many questions may lead people to abandon the survey. And limiting the survey to the most requested features will give an idea on what are the most wanted among the most wanted.

  • It's OK, but there are many small features missing, and it is more possible that those will be implemented, than bigger ones like tab stacking.

    Anyway, I hope they start implementing them, and I can shorten the list in time. :)

  • [Survey item Suggestion]

    Show context menu when selecting text

    The whole context menu? I don't think it's a good idea.

    • Customising shortcuts.
    • Sophisticated download manager (see recent requests).
    • Confirmation on the browser exit (options: off, multiple windows, multiple tabs, always).
    • Comprehensive bookmarks manager, with tagging, descriptions/comments perhaps, various sorting options.

    By me.
    Just recently had an idea of a new feature - a lights out mode. It's like if or when you won't or can't properly use full screen to game or watch a video, nor you're eager to F11 the pane for whatever reason(s) -- then you can toggle this "cinema" mode: everything stays put, just the whole theme and colours go grey or dark grey. Especially - or also - it could be useful at night times, to reduce the overall screen brightness when whatever's going on.
    :idea:

  • The whole context menu?

    Is this whole?

  • As a person with a disability, that affects my hands and arm movements and makes it difficult to use a mouse, I would like to see some things changed:

    1. Right click on a tab and the menu shows Reload tab

    2. URL field, right click and have Paste & Go in the menu

    3. The ability to remove certain search engines as it is VERY frustrating to click on the crap ones due to muscle spasms - I want to click on the one I want and not one that Opera may want me to use.

    4. The ability to customize the URL bar so I can put the most used extension icons at my fingertips instead of having to add a lot of extra clicks to get to the extension I want.

    5. Get the old fashioned menu bar back as it is easier to use

    I used Opera when it first came out years ago and loved it until some of the changes were made - then I uninstalled it and haven't used it for years. I found Firefox to be more customizable so have stuck with them. If Opera brought back the customization I need I would use it as my default browser. Until that point I cannot and you can be fairly sure many people with disabilities feel the same way.

  • URL field, right click and have Paste & Go in the menu

    This one is already there.

    Get the old fashioned menu bar back as it is easier to use

    How exactly it's easier to use?

    There's no way I'm signing into anything that has to do with Google.

    You read the entire topic before posting, right? It was already addressed.
