Make Opera GX touch friendly

  • Would like to use touch in Opera GX. To navigate back / forward and potentially make buttons a tad larger to push them (for example refresh).

    In Edge I can use touch gestures (back/forward) - works out of the box and UI is pretty big. Same thing in Chrome (a small blue arrow appears on back gesture). Additionally, in Chrome you can make the buttons and tabs bigger chrome://flags#top-chrome-md.

    Considering Opera pioneered mouse gestures, its very odd they are behind the curve here, especially considering using the same (Chromium) engine...

    Whats even weirder is that we now start to have "on-mouse-hover" features like the Music Controls. What should I do without mouse? Try to press the small music icon with finger to open side pane and then click on music control? Pretty aggressively anti touch

  • Great! GX now has swipe to back/forward! Much appreciated!
