    So its not my browser setting if the (@lem729) posting showing up all link as normal........

  • Strange? ... why are my links not showing correctly here?

    Maybe because you are using html code? Just writing/pasting the url may be enough.

  • This is still not in Opera, am I right? I can't find anything when I search for "fit to width" in the settings. Opera 29.0.
    Quite incredible, really

  • Opera is not a large company, so it has limited resources to add features. They are currently working on other things, like improving bookmarks and the speed dial. There is a laundry list of features, small and large, that people want to see added to the browser so its not that difficult to believe how 'incredible' it is that it hasn't been added yet.

  • They (opera) are not too keen on fit to width because they say people used to have it enabled by mistake and think browser is not working properly. Who knows they might change their mind and bring it back somehow but it would have to be some kinda advanced option or extension

  • To be honest, I've tried all these so-called Fit-To-Width extensions and they are useless.

    The only real FTW that actually works is in previous older Opera versions.

    I cannot understand why Opera would remove such a valuable tool.

    I cannot understand why Opera would remove such a valuable tool.

    1. "Fit to width" feature is based on the special rendering mode in Opera 12(thats unique for Presto rendering engine). It wasn't implemented by the competitors. Chrome (and its clones) is not exception,

    2. "Fit to width" was considered (by the Opera devs) as one of the most confusing feature that frustrated a lot of non-experienced and newbie users:

    "...Presto-based Opera had become overloaded with features, a number of them confusing rather than helping our users — you can’t imagine how many reports we’ve gotten from users telling us that their favorite site was broken, simply because they had turned on fit-to-width by accident, for instance...."

  • Yes, fit to width is great on Opera 12!
    Whether it can be implemented natively on the new version is unknown of course, but from what stng is saying, probably not.
    If Opera are worried about it being left on accidentally and people thinking the browser isn't working properly, surely the answer is to have it automatically disable again when the browser is re-started.

  • I also use a small screen device so I need to zoom in a lot, and thus I need fit to width to "stabilize" the scrolling after zooming, especially on a touch screen device. Additionally I also found it useful to edit my right click menu to make it easier to use, adding a close and close all items for example.

    Anyways I don't care about new opera until I can have the zoom mouse wheel slider thing, fit to width and can edit my menus. Scrolling opera on a touch screen device sucks pretty bad tho. Explorer buttery smooth.

  • i think mozilla recently added this feature to their newer version. here's my old topic concerning the missing unique-to-opera features the upgrades after v12 (exp: restarted from scratch based on the chrome engine) https://forums.opera.com/topic/6563/is-there-a-list-of-features-that-were-removed-during-the-upgrades/5
