It would be perfect if Opera supported Gnome-shell

  • I don't know why Opera doesn't allow an option (neither with about://flags) to use or integrate this browser with gnome 3 on Linux, the most popular desktop environment on this O.S. This simple detail makes me use other browsers like Firefox or Vivaldi. I think this option should be, at least, in the features section experimental. I consider that is really weird to watch a 'Windows 10 like' GUI when I'm using a completely different O.S. Any comment for this? What do you think, community?

  • I think you can suggest it in the correct forum for suggestions.

  • What type of integration do you mean?

  • @jimunderscorep I use Linux Mint Cinnamon, but Opera's notifications aren't the desktops native notifications. No integration there.

    On my machine, Cinnamon's desktop notifications appear at the top right corner and are dark themed.
    Opera's desktop notification appear on the bottom right corner and are white, so custom themed.

    Google Chrome does it right, its notifications appear where they should appear, dark themed and at the top right corner.

  • Can you post a screenshot? It seems that what you see are web notifications, not os notifications...
    For the record, I have disabled web notifications on all my browsers because they are too spammy.
