Any special Mac-only things missing in Opera?

  • Are you missing a particular Mac-specific feature or behavior in Opera? Weโ€™re looking for feedback on how to improve Opera for Mac. What do you guys want from Opera on Mac?

  • Thanks for opening this thread! Actually I've got two mac-only features to suggest:

    1. notification center integration ( for both downloads and notifications from websites)
    2. sharing button

    Bonus points: I notice that Opera activates the discrete gpu when using some plugins on my Retina Macbook Pro but Safari doesn't. Is it possible to optimize this behaviour in order to preserve battery life?

    1. notification center integration ( for both downloads and notofications from websites)
    2. sharing button

    Thank you for suggesting these!

    Is it possible to optimize this behaviour in order to preserve battery life?

    Opera currently cannot compete with Safariโ€™s OS-level battery life optimisation. I think, however, that we might have a magic trick or two up over sleeves that you will see in upcoming releases. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Tabs hibernation FTW! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • How to open tabs in background?
    I'm using Opera 20 and neither the mouse 3 button nor command+mouse 1 are opening tabs in background after clicking a link.

    HELP ME, plz!

  • @Avneto: the "Command+Shift+Enter" is the default keybinding to open link in background on Mac.

  • @l33t4opera not in Opera 20, unfortunately!

  • @Avneto: just cmd + click any link.

    cmd+click is not working here....build 20.0.1387.64!
    It's driving me nutz!!

  • All commands should be accessible through the main menus so that keyboard shortcuts can be assigned and changed using the System Preferences. Clone tab and Copy address are among commands missing and only available via right click.

    Same think here

  • Trying to return on Topic ๐Ÿ˜›
    What about iCloud bookmarks? I know bookmark are a "special" topic since the release of Opera 15, but I was wondering...does Apple provide iCloud bookmarks sync API?

  • I thought this was an Opera for Mac feature request topic, Where every (Opera) Mac user inundates this thread with huge lists of feature requests ?. But no, we get someone thread-jacking wanting help with their Mac, when there are specific area's on this forum for help request such as this. Well, I guess it's one way to get peoples attention.

  • No bookmarks

    I cannot save links as bookmarks. I have no star on the right of the address field, and no option "Add to bookmarks" except by adding them to the bookmarks bar. I cannot classify them except as working blind. I have no cloud on the left bottom of the browser. I have no access to my Bookmark page. Your software is a nightmare with a huge cloud hiding my bookmarks and no way to review and order them.
    The only and very heavy way to keep them is to add them to Speed Dial as a very large icon. To do so I right click on the name of the page above the address field. But I cannot imagine my numerous bookmarks from Firefox filling one only page with large icons, even in 9 columns.
    I just want my bookmarks as text, ordered in chapters and sub-chapters. I have too many bookmarks and I work with them since too many years to keep them with anything else then text.
    I go back to Firefox, with my computer as well as my Android phone.
    Anyway I am never proposed to import my bookmarks and I cannot lost them.

  • @darklink88

    I'm no expert, but AFAIK iCloud anything is only available if the application is published via the Mac App Store, so builds downloaded elsewhere couldn't use iCloud. If it were possible to do iCloud bookmarks I'm not saying we would or wouldn't do it, either. ๐Ÿ™‚

    But, personally, speaking with my Non-Opera-Employee hat on I don't like iCloud for a lot of reasons, and this one is one of them. I use it for the bare minimum, myself.

  • I understand that bookmarks are gone past release 12. This seems to be established fact and not worthy of discussion, probably because this has been known for some time.

    So, please bring back bookmarks!

  • Does Opera use App Nap?

  • yes

  • Bookmarks manager will be back at some stage, so stay tuned ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Option to always open in private mode in operas setting/options.
