Can we please get syncing of search engines? It's so annoying re-doing it EVERY bloody time on every system when I add a new search keyword to one of my systems. And same goes for Extensions. I use many of them and changing or adding them by hand on every reinstall or change gets really annoying. I mean, we have the Sync feature which is there for this exact purpose. Why not use it? Search engine keywords are one of the most awesome features I've used in any browser. No more clumsy search fields, you just drop a keyword and word you're searching for and it'll look it up. It's why sync is so important for it, so you have same search engines and keywords in all browsers no matter how much you add or remove them.

Sync Extensions and Search Engines please!Suggestions and feature requests
Close tabs to the leftSuggestions and feature requests
Why is it automatically assumed one would only want to close all the tabs to the right from current tab? I've often came to a point where I had tons of tabs open, but I wanted to close them to the left of currently active tab. Why is this not an option available to the user?
When is this useful? When you for example open several image galleries and bunch of individual images from each of these galleries. But then you want to close all the tabs with galleries that remained on the left and only leave opened images on the right, because you only need images in the end. Currently, this is not possible because "Close tabs to the left" doesn't exist as a function.
Bookmarks syncing for Opera Touch, when?Opera Browser
Since Opera Mini for iOS was apparently sacked, there is no way of getting desktop bookmarks on mobile device since Opera Touch doesn't even have bookmarks, just MyFlow which isn't really useful at all. Are there even any plans for bookmarks syncing to see the day of light in Opera Touch?
RE: Sync Extensions & Extension SettingsSuggestions and feature requests
I want extension syncing as well. But settings and state of extensions (enabled or disabled) should be per-PC. Sometimes you want different settings between PC and laptop devices. But having them synced is certainly a must.
In fact I want 3 more things to be synced:
- RSS subscriptions
- search engines
Almost everyone use more than 1 device these days and managing all this stuff over and over again for each PC is just ridiculous, especially for things that are universally useful across all systems (liek synced custom search engines and keywords for them).
RE: Does Opera Touch sync bookmarks?Opera Browser
Opera Mini for iOS is garbage with forced Google search and stupid news and Opera Touch does't have synced bookmarks.
My Flow is imo the most useless thing I've ever seen. Synced bookmarks mean you have bookmarks accessible on any device in their entirety. My Flow requires you to send specific thing, otherwise you have nothing. Not to mention I don't understand why Bookmarks can't be synced alongside. There's nothing preventing it. But Opera people decided to just exclude bookmarks altogether. I know iOS has its own stupid limitations, but none of it limit functionality of these browsers. It's the devs who just decide to f**k it all up so I have either good desktop browser and shitty mobile one or vice versa. It's ridiculous. Opera Touch would be great if only they added bookmarks syncing. And that's it.
Any reason why Install Chrome Extensions isn't included in Opera by default?Opera for Windows
For example, Vivaldi allows installation of Chrome extensions out of the box, but for Opera you need to install an extension which by itself is consuming tons of memory for no logical reason other than simply being there. Why? Why not just make it a part of browser like Vivaldi has done?
Synchronization of search engines and extensions, when?Suggestions and feature requests
Is Opera ever going to get synchronization of search engines and extensions. I mean, for those of us who use several machines, it's really annoying to maintain every installation of Opera by hand for every change you make. And that also includes extensions and search engines. I want the same things in all my Opera installations. And syncing would allow that. Firefox does it, Chrome does it, just Opera doesn't for some bizarre reason.
Tab stacking as Firefox does it instead of this shrinking mess from Chrome/OperaSuggestions and feature requests
Can you guys at Opera please change the behavior of tabs when many are open to be scrollable sideways at fixed size instead of shrinking them till they become 2 millimeters wide? It's ridiculous. Opera shrinks them so far you don't even see any text on them anymore. And to make things even worse, if you're using it on a touch device like my hybrid HP X2 netbook, using touch to select a correct tab is like trying to press a keyboard button using Boeing 787 left wing.
Firefox has this far more elegant. Tabs remain fixed size, so they are easily selectable, you can see the title on the tab, close it with the X button on it and to access more tabs, you simply drag the tabs and they scroll left and right.
Why can't Opera use such system instead of idiotic one from Chrome? Google makes many good designs, but with this one, they totally missed all the GUI and UX design basics. Like, entirely.
RE: scoped_dir folders in downloads directoryOpera for Windows
This thing is really irritating. How on earth can this be so incredibly hard to figure out by devs? It's not like all Windows apps just randomly create "scoped_dir" named folders for the downloads. There is obviously a piece of code in Opera that does this specifically under certain situations entirely unknown to users.
RE: Opera 65 comes with an improved tracker blocker and redesigned address barBlogs
I knew that you won't fix the nonuniform text (some text bold, some is thin) on Settings page even after multiple reports in both Beta and Dev threads.
I frankly don't know what's going on with Opera recently. They killed Opera Mini on iOS without saying a word, Opera Touch for some stupid reason doesn't have bookmarks syncing which kills any incentive for me to use Opera on desktop, they aren't commenting or acknowledging bugs or issues, they aren't updating extensions even though its devs have updated and submitted them months ago (Bitwarden in particular) etc. I really liked Opera when I came back to it when Opera 50 was released and it felt like this is it, I can finally return to Opera after I had to ditch it after they've gone with Chromium foundation and now they are doing all these really weird decisions that aren't helping them in any way. Why, I don't have a single clue. But if they were listening to users and be more in touch with us, they'd be doing way better than they are now. And that's just a shame because I always liked Opera.

RE: Opera GX Mobile is here – Great News for Gamers on the GoBlogs
@hex1984: A must have for what? What can Flow possibly do that full fat Sync can't? Also at which point I said Flow should be taken away? Opera desktop has Flow and Sync. iOS Opera only has Flow. After it had Sync and they just removed it by sacking Opera Mini. Every time anyone suggests anything you all jump in defense like we're planning on taking candy from babies. Not having bookmarks with you at all times is one of most annoying things ever. It defeats the purpose of browser on multiple devices.
RE: Opera GX Mobile is here – Great News for Gamers on the GoBlogs
Why this pushing of useless Flow function instead of giving us proper bookmarks sync? Seriously? The Flow thing is Useless when browser sync does the same and much more because you can have same bookmakrs on all devices. Sync is just an overglorified memo. Useless.
RE: Opera Music Player with Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube MusicBlogs
Would be nice if anyone put any kind of effort into Opera Touch for iOS instead of stuff like this... You know, adding stuff like I don't know... Opera Sync to Opera Touch? Everyone is asking for that and nothing. No one asked for media players and here they are. Ugh.
RE: Opera Mini 50 gets fully revamped; mobile browsing never looked so good!Blogs
Unless you're on iOS in which case it's big FU. No normal Opera, no Opera Mini, nothing. We're stuck with useless Opera Touch that doesn't even have any kind of syncing capability just useless MyFlow which serves god knows what purpose. Sending instant messages to yourself so you read what you already know. But can't get that bookmark you need from home because it doesn't work both ways, but does with syncing. Heh. Even though we had it in Opera Mini for iOS like century ago...
Summary of new big changes or improvements on Opera Desktop Blog?Suggestions and feature requests
Why aren't we getting summary news posts about big releases anymore? It's version 68 now and I'd like to know what 69 will bring. And all we seem to get are detailed beta logs of every tiny changes I'm not interested in at all. But I'd like to know what I should be excited about in Opera 69 or 70 further down the update trail.
RE: Auto Added Adblock Exceptions List is IntrusiveSuggestions and feature requests
It's Incredibly annoying. All the default exclusions have re-added themselves 4 times now and I've just installed Opera 2 days ago. Like, wtf are you doing. If I removed the damn exclusions, I removed them with reason. Now I keep opening the damn panel every day like some imbecile because I don't want them there, but I'm never sure if what i do will actually stick. And from the looks of it, it doesn't stick. It literally has mind of its own.
Stop re-adding adblocking exclusionsOpera for computers
Why is Opera constantly re-adding bloody adblocking exclusions? You remove them, do a sync with another system and exclusions are there again. And they often just randomly without your knowledge appear there again. Stop doing this!
Video pop-out not working on Netflix?Opera for Windows
How come Opera, the innovator of video pop-out feature is the only browser that doesn't support popping out Netflix video? Firefox supports it, Vivaldi supports it, just Opera doesn't for some weird reason. What's going on here?
RE: Opera GX gets Instagram, Workspaces and other unique Opera featuresBlogs
I'd prefer if you'd just do bloody something with Opera Touch on iOS and add it freaking bookmarks syncing instead of fiddling with Opera GX which no one ever really asked for...
RE: Opera browsers in 2020, what’s next?Blogs
Opera Touch for iOS getting Syncing should be top priority. I can't even use bloody Opera anywhere because it syncs nothing with my other systems, rendering it entirely useless. That thing to send links and notes is entirely useless and pointless. Opera Mini for iOS that had Syncing but got sacked so now I'm left with nothing on iPhone. I used to really like Opera and it was one of first browsers to have syncing back in Presto days. Now I can't even use it. Wasted potential.
