I'm new to Opera, great browser but..

  • Hello all, i'm a mac user, coming from Safari, i switched to Opera because of the "presentation mode" that safari doesn't offer..
    The opera browser seems great but, why can't we (like in chrome) make the tab bar appears in "presentation mode" by hovering the mouse at the top of the screen? It only makes appear the menu bar, so we can't switch between tabs in presentation mode, we always have to quit the mode, switch tab and enter again the presentation mode, which is really not convenient ...

    And the second thing is, can we make disappear the little "address & loading bar" in the bottom of the screen that shows up whenever the mouse pass on a link? It's pretty distracting to be honest, safari doesn't have this problem..

    Apart from that, Opera seems to be a great browser.. Have a great day all!

    I'm not a Mac user, but on Windows you can switch tabs with Ctrl+Tab. On Mac it probably works with Cmd+Tab. Keep Cmd pressed and you'll get a preview of the site you'll switch to after each time you press tab. Release Cmd to switch to it.

    can we make disappear the little "address & loading bar"

    I don't think so.

  • A huge thanks for your quick answer Christoph, i knew the trick about "ctrl+tab", but when you have 5 or 10 tabs opened, it's not convenient to switch all of them before accessing the one you need..

    I'm really surprised to see that people didn't ask for this simple feature before..

    Does someone know where can we ask developers to consider this feature, a mail or a link?

    And thanks again Chris!
