Wishlist for Opera

  • Issue 1: Page goes to maximum/minimum zoom on touchpads with inertia scrolling(momentum). If I scroll using this touchpad feature then I lift the two fingers from the device page still scrolls, but if I press CTRL+W to close the tab, firstly it zooms the page then it closes. When I get back to that page I see it zoomed in or out to maximum, depends on how you scrolled up or down the page.

    Issue 2: Opera Account log in with SMS on phone token like in Chrome. If someone finds your account password, it won`t be able to log in without the token.

    Issue 3: Password sync in Opera Cloud like LastPass and the ability to have the passwords in opera mini too :D.Would be a breathtaking feature.

    Issue 4: In older versions of Opera like 12, when the user went back and forward the page was displayed very fast, probably without having to load again. It seems like it kept it memory somewhere, but now it doesnt. THIS WAS MY FAVORITE FEATURE OF THIS BROWSER BECAUSE IT WAS LIGHT FAST!!! NO OTHERS BROWSER HAD IT! TOO BAD ITS NOT HERE ANYMORE :(((

    Issue 5: The sidebar!

  • Re issue 4: That speed thing is one of reasons I'm heavily using older Opera versions for many (compatible) sites. Javascript and CSS tricks can be much speedier on new engine, but forth-back navigation is just sloooow 😞

    Unfortunately I can't see light at the end of this tunnel, at least not from Opera devs - I'm pretty sure that this slowness is caused by main (Chrome based) rendering engine.

    I hope I'm wrong of course 🙂

  • Hope they tweak the new version, because it was the deal breaker in comparison to other browsers back then
