Tweak for "Go to web address" featureSuggestions and feature requests
Opera has this nifty feature when you can highlight web address -> right click -> Go to web address. It is really helpful in situations where link is unclickable. The problem is that it opens in the current tab, which is inconvenient in most cases (you probably still reading/watching something on the page you found this link). So it would be nice to be able to set "Go to web address" feature to open link in the new tab.
Bookmarks buttonSuggestions and feature requests
Here is my setup: https://s28.postimg.org/4fn7hpwjx/image.png
To get functionality of usual Bookmarks button I use Bookmarks panel with just one button on it. That is a lot of wasted space. So it would be nice to see Bookmarks button in a row with other default buttons in Opera (if not by default at least as an option to enable). It could look like this: https://s4.postimg.org/8t0ieqwzx/finished.png and act just like any other Bookmarks button - drop-down menu with Bookmarks.
Sure there are extensions for that, but built-in always better/faster.
Menu -> Bookmarks (and Start Page button) also not an option, way to far and slow, too much mouse movements and/or clicks.
VPN status is not available while typing in URL/search fieldSuggestions and feature requests
Little but important thing. When you start typing URL or search request you can't see VPN status at this point. I think it is important to know if VPN is connected or not while you using it. So that would be nice if VPN icon was visible even when URL/search bar is in use.
RE: Auto-ON VPN Mode for specific sitesSuggestions and feature requests
You may use Frigate extension to do it until they implement it (if they do) in Opera Presto it was possible.
thx for suggestion.
also need to mention that this feature would have to be tab-specific, since the only site you want to VPN is the one from the list and not others.
that would mess with simplicity, currently VPN works across all tabs simultaneously, but oh well ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Auto-ON VPN Mode for specific sitesSuggestions and feature requests
Usually I don't use VPN, but when I do use it I use it only for specific sites.
So I thinks it would be useful to implement an option to list all the sites you want to go with VPN automatically enabled before you go there. Main reason is that some sites are blocked by provider and cannot be accessed without VPN. So automatic VPN would help with that.
5 things to improve in Video Pop Out featureSuggestions and feature requests
Nice feature, but there is a room for improvements...
Sound Volume Control.
Currently you can only disable sound, but not make it higher/lower, it is pretty unconventional.
Full Screen Mode. If you decide to go full screen you have to go to YouTube page, can't do it in "Pop Out" mode.
On YouTube you can hover over thru video timeline and can see time and little snapshot of the video. Would be very nice to be able to see time and if possible image above cursor when you hover over timeline in "Pop Out" mode.
Some apps have nice feature where if you drag it closer to the edge of the screen or to a corner it will automatically sticks to it. It would be useful here too.
Previous video button.
If you playing a playlist you have an option to jump to the next video (there is a button for it) but you can't go to the previous one (no button). It is useful feature would be nice to see it here.
