Navigation gestures in Opera Touch

  • Dear opera team, first of all thanks for adding the navigation bar option as an alternative to the single popup button.

    Asides from bookmarks there's the navigation in the browser that keeps me from switching from the standard Opera in Android and I'd like to suggest the following:

    • Refresh page by pulling down the page (when at the top) similar as in other browsers like Chrome or, oh yes, Opera for Android 😉
    • Switching between tabs by swiping the navigation bar left and right (also similarly to other browsers, e.g. Brave for Android)
    • Forward/backward a step in the history by swiping from the left or right side of the screen

    The latter two would also be a much appreciated addition to Opera for Android in general.
    Those would also still apply to your concept of easy one finger navigation (much more than the current option to refresh a page when the navigation bar is activated; which is to open the menu in the upper right of the browser and press the refresh button. Maybe love that while menu down to the bottom altogether while you're at it).

    Oh, also please just add bookmarks synchronisation to Opera Touch 🙂
