search HTML function

  • I would like you to have the HTML search function in Opera GX.... !Screenshot_1.png firefox.png

  • Did you try ctrl + f?

  • ctrl + f works, but it does not find necessary resources than an already built HTML search system!an already included function makes this more practical, and I want this practicality not to depend on another browser .... I use this feature to download wallpaper with original resolution, because when I like a wallpaper I put as wallpaper on my computer and I usually like that the wallpaper has a great resolution ... I always use your browsers and if the browser had this option, for me it would be the best browser in the world...

  • I don't see much difference when searching the HTML with Opera and Firefox. Firefox highlights the whole line where it finds ".jpg" while Opera highlights just ".jpg" on the line. They both have previews when you hover over them.

    I couldn't reproduce the issue in the pic where Opera found 70+ occurrences while Firefox found 22. When I tested in Opera, Opera found only 22/23 also. Opera did search for ".jpg" in a script on the page while Firefox did not though, but that was about it.

    Both Opera and Firefox find next when you press ENTER in the search field.

    So, Opera is pretty darn close to Firefox already. But, I understand if you want it to be exactly like Firefox.

  • @burnout426 Yes they both have the same system, but Opera does not find cover image, only thumbs, thumbnails, icons ...Make a test, try to find the cover image of youtube channel by typing (.jpg) in opera, it tries to find the youtube channel cover image by typing (.jpg) in Firefox ...I use Opera a long time, so I know that this system in the opera is not practical, same in other browsers, Google Chrome, Firefox etc ...You may find it easy to find the images etc, but not all people are the same, people have different difficulties so I'm suggesting a more practical HTML search system ...I hope you understand...

  • Even if you find the resources you want, this error appears, maybe it's a bug....GIF showing the procedures

    I can reproduce the issue in Opera. But, I can only reproduce it when using paste and go (ctrl + shift + v) in the address field. Doing it that way, Opera forgets to paste the beginning https: and Opera then thinks it's a file:// link. I could not reproduce it with just paste (ctrl + v) and pressing enter like you're doing in the GIF. Either way though, I can investigate that more and file a bug.

    You can avoid the issue though if you right-click the IMG line you find in developer tools and choose "copy link address" (as opposed to double-left-clicking the src= value to put it in edit mode and then right-clicking on copying the selection).

    Edit: I am now able to reproduce the issue with just paste (ctrl + v). I think it's a bug in Opera. But, the 2 // in front is pretty messaged up. You should see what Vivaldi does with it.

    Opera finds the cover phots most of the time. When it doesn't, I don't even see img elements for those cover photos in developer tools (not matter how I search for them). I thinking the search function is accurate in that case and just something else is up. Not sure.

    Yep.

  • @burnout426 Is that I do not have a lot of notion in the HTML language, I'm a layman, so I'm informing a practical HTML search opinion, this will help users who have difficulties, how much the browser has practical functions, better automated for the public ... I go perform the procedures you reported on Friday, because tomorrow is a holiday and I will not be able to mess with the computer ... Thank you for your attention, understanding and patience ...
