Status Bar In Opera

  • I have been a long term user of Opera but find it doesn't have a status bar at the bottom of the page. Vivaldi have recently got their status bar to provide more info regarding page loading process etc. Anyone know of an extension suitable for Opera ? I've had a quick look myself and can't find anything.

  • There may not be a status bar, but there is a status panel when it is needed. If you mouse over a link and look at the bottom of the page, you see the address for the link.

    Could you explain? I don't see anything new in Vivaldi's status bar. (I agree with your wish regardless though.)

  • As this is an Opera forum , shouldn't really give details about a rivals product. The status bar was recently updated to give more info as page is loading. If you want any further info regarding the status bar please ask in the Vivaldi forums.

    There's no rule against that. It's okay, especially since you're talking about Opera implementing something from another browser.

    I wasn't asking for the hell of it and going off topic. You said there's something special about Vivaldi's status bar. As part of your wish for Opera to have a status bar, if you want Opera to also implement that special thing, it'd be helpful if you mention details.
