Opera's bookmark manager flaws and improvement suggestions

  • Reporting for Opera 57.1.2830.52480 (because of additional user agent flaw in newer versions; check Opera is wrongly opening pages in new tab with mobile user agent). As far as I know, nothing has changed yet in newer versions, though.

    Bookmark manager. List of flaws and/or improvement suggestions, in order of importance:

    • It lacks a search function, when Chrome has had it for ages already (and I know Opera uses the same engine). This is self explanatory, and rather inconvenient. Please add a bookmark search function.

    • It inserts any new bookmark atop the list in any folder. This is counter-intuitive. People who, like me, take care to sort their bookmark tree, are forced to reorder it more often or start thinking downside-up when doing it. Inserting bookmarks at the bottom of the list is preferred, in my honest opinion.

    • When sliding bookmarks to reorder them and the screen limits are reached, the scroll animation starts super SLOW and needs A LOT OF TIME to gain momentum. I see no reason for it to be so bad, its stupid. Please let it accelerate MUCH faster and reach a higher top speed too (top speed is slow too). I will also say that being able to slide-move multiple bookmarks at a time could also be nice (multiple selection of bookmarks is already possible via the top right vertical three dots menu).

    • When bookmarks are open from the menu, the omnipresent bookmark window takes up the whole screen instead of being open inside a bookmarks tab. This makes impossible to switch to other tabs while keeping the bookmark tree open.
