Features to steal from Firefox: Bookmark tags, chrome button context menus, and CTRL+F Highlighting

  • I'd like to request some quality of life features that Firefox has that Opera is currently missing but hopefully would be simple enough to include in the feature set.

    • Bookmarks have tags in addition to a title for easier searching
      • The main reason I enjoyed this feature in Firefox was making searching more flexible and easier. Right now in Opera, searching in Bookmarks is limited to the URL and the title, and I don't like stuffing random words into the title.
      • To make this even more impressive, surpass Firefox by also adding an alias field for as many title aliases as the user wants!
    • The browser back button and the browser forward button have a right click dropdown menu of the history for that tab.
      • Having the ability to use a context menu on the buttons in the chrome is really nice.
    • CTRL+F searching highlights all matching words.
      • Easier for visual grokking

    The features above are small things that make life lovely, and I miss them after transitioning from Firefox to Opera. Please steal them and implement them in Opera 😊

  • @georgepantazes Except for the bookmarks one, there are already those features in Opera.
