[Suggestion] Minor Download Manager Tweaks

  • Hello,

    It seems with all of the version's of Opera the default Download Manager has became pretty sloppy. I don't understand why in previous versions the Downloaded files information would span the whole screen, in the new one it seem's to be limited to a prettified width.

    The second issue I see missing is the Filesize of a downloaded item. If my memory does not do me wrong, this both has been present in the previous Opera versions.

    The other suggestion would be to make some actions much more quicker to access, for example there's no need for a Dropdown with opening the file location, when you already have the Open button.

  • @d3adr1ot Open the file location and Open (the file) aren't the same thing.

  • With all do respect @leocg in this particular case the item in question is redundant. I have attached a screenshot. If you notice there is a Green arrow which indicates a "File Open" function, which in my case would trigger the "Image" to be loaded into "Preview" on OSX. However, you also have untitled folder which is Open File location without the idiotic need for a dropdown, as such your argument is rather vague.

    As it stands I don't appreciate

    Open the file location and Open (the file) aren't the same thing.
    

    Since I belive you seem to have missed the rather obvious relating to Open File Location, which is there. Again, without idiotic and redundant dropdown.

    As you can also see, there is a huge amount of wasted space which can be populated and allow for more data like Filesize, Firefox has this functions and has had them for very long time.

    Sloppy? Downloading has become almost glacial. I tried downloading something with Opera and the same thing with Slimjet. In about 3 seconds, the download was done with Slimjet, and in 3 seconds, Opera was barely getting started.
