  • @leocg: Obviously it's for uploading. The question is how to use it! As I pointed out, the thumbnail on the right takes the user to the folder in which the download went, but not to the download itself. Is that all there is to this Easy Files?

  • @sgrandin: I think the mention of email, above, should be Webmail. Easy Files only works with pages displayed by Opera which have some sort of Upload button, as found on Twitter and Facebook, if you use those. I used to use File-Ex by Cottonwood Software, which allowed quick navigation to one's most-used folders for saving and opening files.

    When searching for information about the Enhanced Address Bar, it wasn't much help that many were referring to it as BABE.

  • @jozop: You might want to check The Marvellous Suspender extension for Chrome. I was going to suggest The Great Suspender, but it's recently been compromised and withdrawn.

  • Are there any prospects for adding vertical tabs in Opera? This would be very useful.

  • Is there any plan to extend amount of Workspaces?
    Please notice this is limited to 5 only, whereas users can have more topics than 5 where would like to open tabs per category.
    Would be nice to have possibility to add more Workspaces.

  • @piomiq You can create up to 24 workspaces.

  • @kened If you are sort of unique clairvoyant able to see over horizon, yes. There are large if not endless prospects for all options. Not vertical tabs only. 😉 Otherwise stop dreaming. 🙂

  • On the current and recent Stable builds I am no longer able to share a YouTube by clicking on the share button or arrow under the YouTube. When I do click it, the screen dims, almost to black. Another click and it reverts to normal. The only way I can share is to use sharing app or to copy and paste the URL. Running Windows 7.

    Any suggestions?

  • @leocg: thank you for replying. i did also see some references to ARM in the patch notes for some releases. for now brave is running a whole lot better on the m1, but i'm looking forward to moving back to opera when there is a native ARM version

    Addition to my post above:

    ... and Twitter.

    For example : When you do a Area around a Tweet or a Button, every Element, the left and right selection is not correctly.

  • @pavelopdev: 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂Keep hope alive!!!!

  • I hope that Opera will update Chromium engine to 88.0.4324.150 soon as there are some 0-day vulnerabilities...

  • @kened As far as I see it is Opera users and this forum attendees which "keep gaining gray hair" rather as years go by and some bugs "keep growing long beards". Generally, nothing's going younger here, alas. 👿

    What hope d'you mean? It's only one here - let's sit around in Net and sing kumbaya! 😜

  • Easy Files works for gmail and Polish o2.pl in Win10. o2.pl and Yandex.Mail in Debian GNU/Linux do not experience that happiness. Is this correct - Easy Files work in Windows only - and why?

  • Finally, Chromecast works 😃 Thanks a lot and the menu is also in dark mode like my Opera all around 😃

  • @pavelopdev: When the Opera team realizes that Vivaldi is approaching, they will change their way of dealing with users. 🤐

  • @kened Many of the Vivaldi features are (just) modern versions of the ones Opera used to have in the past.
    In fact, Vivaldi was created aiming those old Opera Presto users that used to like its swiss knife style and missed it when Opera changed to Chromium.

  • @leocg: I know this.

  • @kened So you know that Opera and Vivaldi are for different publics.

  • @leocg We know as well, that Vivaldi is for now a Desktop beast mainly, but Opera's dozen ramifications penetrate smartphone world swamps. There are no sensible/sizable teams which might use their times for every Opera type, as well. So the development goes small steps once in a week ("if weather allows" - sarcasm), plumbing/patching the f***/pathetic holes/bugs as soon as possible and leaving for real development in strides too less time.

    I have no illusions and high hopes now. The most salient issues are not being resolved (e.g. Snapshot Left Shift) due to lack of manpower (pardon Ladies - due to human powers). So the much needed, other issues, e.g. aesthetic trifles have even worse future - the Opera's lofty priorities are the Kings in Opera dev premises nowadays, alas.

    Anyway, I see very good features being implemented from time to time. That's why I love Opera and see no competition for it yet.

    The bad side of the coin is that sooner or later the Opera Desktop management will probably face a wall of short resources and effects of shortsightedness - a sad fact to us, if they have happened, especially for the diehard desktop users.

    I do not want to elaborate on the infamous lack of real feedback from Opera, which is tantamount to recklessness - to put it in few short words.

    Hope? Has it any valid meaning against such bad looking background?

    Have nice nights and days users.
