Scrolling the bookmarks bar

  • Personally, I like to have everything on the bookmarks bar "at hand" (actually "under the cursor";)), so for me the bookmarks bar never contains more bookmarks / folders that it could not contain without displaying ">>".
    Only, that from time to time I place the Opera browser on the right / left side of the screen and then unfortunately I can't fit the entire content of the bookmarks bar. That's why I thought maybe there would be a better solution for going to invisible bookmarks than the ">>" button.
    It's about scrolling the bookmarks bar with the mouse scroll.
    Personally, I see two solutions.
    A. scrolling and displaying on the left "<<" and on the right ">>" when the bookmark bar scrolls somewhere in the middle of the content. Of course, both buttons will display tabs / folders before and after the visible place.
    B. the choice in the Opera settings between always displaying the first items and possibly displaying ">>" if there are too many of them (so the external form) and between scrolling the bookmarks bar using scroll but without(!) displaying the "<<" and ">>" buttons.
    Personally, I would be for solution B.
    I don't know much about computer programming, but I suspect that solution A would be too difficult to implement.
    Already in a stable version, if we have too many elements on the sidebar (which is not difficult to achieve because you can add extensions here), it is using the scroll mouse to scroll the sidebar content.
    Therefore, I think that implementing such a solution in the bookmarks bar would not be a difficult solution.
