My “5 Things I’d Like To See In Opera” List

By | July 19, 2007 | 9 Comments


Post after post today, hope you like to read a lot.

Daniel Goldman tagged me in his “Blog tag: 5 things I’d like to see in Opera” post, so I couldn’t miss that. Here you go, my 5 things I’d like to see in Opera list:

1. Integrated inline spell check. This is probably one of the best features to have.
2. Web developer’s toolbar. I’ve actually noticed that more web developers are tend to use Firefox more than Opera. Since it is impossible to install Google, Alexa toolbar, I wish Opera team would make a toolbar where I would be able to see: Google PageRank, Alexa Rank and other great things (no widgets, please).
3. Smart auto update, something like Firefox got. You are surfing the web and then boom, a pleasant message: your update is ready to be installed.
4. More powerful RSS feeds reader. I would like to have a “Trash Can” or at least an “Undo” feature; sometimes I delete important news and can’t use CTRL+Z to get them back. Also: a button to check all the subscribed feeds at once (any time).
5. Actually I have 2 more wishes: Would like be able to delete multiple passwords in “saved passwords list” also an ability to add more “auto-complete” forms.

I was thinking to suggest a small arrow Arrowwhere the “Back” button is so I can see my previous visited pages and chose the one where I would like to come back. However, I can do that already by clicking on a button and holding for a few seconds. Didn’t knew about that.

5 to tag: Rowan Mulder, Paulius Jačionis, Ramūnas, Andy Beal, Rand Fishkin.

Here you go.

Once you’ve been tagged by someone, share your list (on your blog) of 5 things you’d like to see in Opera, and then tag up to 5 other people who will then post their own lists and tag up to 5 more people.

    In regard to the click-drag history:
    There was such a button with an arrow in the default toolbar in the before-time (I think it was changed with Opera 8). It has since gone, obviously, but it -is- still available in the toolbar customizer: go to Tools >> Appearance >> Buttons >> Browser and you can drag it and an accompanying forward button to the toolbar of your choice.

    As for your remarks about newsfeeds I confess I’m at a loss: newsfeed messages -do- end up in the trash, and you -can- undo such a deletion.

    Thanks for the “back” thing. Althought I wish that button would be a bit smaller :-)
    I think you can undo deletion only if you are using Opera’s mail and chat accounts…

    Or I am wrong? I see the option for “Trash” when reading, but somehow it shows not all the deleted news.

    another way is Pressing on history button and drag down mouse, It is more faster than just wait
