I am completely new to Opera in general. I usually use Google Chrome. The gaming aspect of the browser sounded nice so I set it up, and I love the extra features it brings opposed to other browsers. The ram limiter made me want to switch instantly. I do have some issues/complaints/feedback. Also, I don't know if certain things already exist, eventhough I have gone trough all of the settings. Also, Idk if these issues are exclusive to the GX browser, or just all Opera browsers in general.
I personally don't like having the sidebar on at all times, it's a bit distracting, but I do think it's pretty useful. Maybe an option to have it pop-up when hovering your mouse all the way to the left edge? Or just make it easaly toggleable, maybe using the menu in the top left? Or even just a small button in the bottom left that toggles it.
What about being able to unpin/remove the GX corner? I already know that I won't use it at all, so for me it's just a useless console remote icon there. (also, why a console remote, why not a keyboard and mouse? It's a PC program after all...)
I love the fact that you can use chrome exetensions on Opera GX. I installed all extensions that I previously used on Chrome, and most of them work fine, but some where I am required to sign into a Google account, don't seem to work. Trying to click sign-in at the "save to Google Keep" extension just does noting.
Also the right-side "easy setup" panel is weird. In Chrome you can for example see all your extensions when clicked on a right side menu. I use alot of extensions of which I don't want to see all of them in my toolbar at all times. When I hide an extension, it takes me like 10 clicks and trying to find the extension to unhide it. This could be made way easier by just being able to see a small overview of all extensions in a one click away menu and temporarily unhiding it by left clicking, or completely unhide it in a small right-click menu.
Also I don't think it's necesarry to have some of those options right there. Like importing settings is only something that you do once, and never again, but in this browser its literally two clicks away. IMO it should pop up or something when first starting the browser, and then be hidden somewhere relatively deep into the settings.
A cool option for this I think would be that you can customize whatever appears there from the settings.
Just something I noticed while exploring the options is that when taking a screenshot, you can't blur parts using ellipses..?
What about being able to customize the other colors in the browser? Not only the accents. I'm not really into these completely dark colors. And also what about being able to customize the accents color per website. Like when I go to Reddit, the accent is reddit-coloredr-orange and when I go to Youtube its the red from youtube? And Twitch purple and so on. Or since this is a gaming browser, rainbow effects and stuff like that. Maybe even allow it to synchronise with other programs or hardware? Obviously we need RGB functions to improve the performance
In the left sidebar, what about being allowed to have your own chat website you use. For example the Whatsapp thing is just bascially a resized tab of web.whatsappp.com that always stays open. How about being able to add on to those?
What about a built in dark mode? Just like one of those extensions, but then built in like the adblocker is.
