  1. Add a built-in translator

    Currently it has dozens of extensions to translate pages, but none of it works very well. So my suggestion is from the Opera team itself to add a translator in the browser (as it happens on the phone).

    • Sync extensions

      The ability to sync extensions like in Chrome would be a great convenience if you have a lot of devices.

      • Add VPN domain exceptions

        Some websites are logging "possible unauthorized access" when signing in. If I have VPN enabled then they constantly spam me about unauthorized access from other country. I would like to have option to add an exception to VPN enabled domains. So that I can exclude those domains, that tracks unauthorized accesses.
        Thx

        • would add StartPage as one of the default search engines

          I really hate Google, but Opera does not let me get rid of it any longer. And I would like StartPage to be one of the search engines that are "build in" the Opera browser. I think this is the one thing that may make me get rid of Opera for good.

            • windows 10 virtual desktop support

              It would be great if whenever I open Opera all my windows would open on those desktops where I've closed them. It's really annoying to move them each time to all my desktops

                  Can you add support for several languages in spell checker? At least for those languages that are based on different alphabets

                    • Use one binary exe for compatibility with Windows task bar and input software

                      Hi!

                      Please use only one binary executable for compatibility with Windows task bar pinning and input software like Logitech Gaming Software.

                      In the current situation, there is created a new folder each time Opera updates. Launcher points to this, but Windows and input software that points directly to the proper exe must be updated.

                      Firefox, Chrome and IE uses one, for insance
                      C:\Users\gambler\Prografile\Firefox\firefox.exe
                      C:\Users\gambler\Prografile\Chrome\chrome.exe

                      Opera uses
                      C:\Users\gambler\Prografile\Opera\25.0.1614.18\opera.exe

                      Here you can see the folder changes each time because it includes the build number.

                      Suggestion:
                      Please use one main binary executable only like Firefox and Chrome so I don't have to re-pin…

                      • Allow "other search engines" to be the default search engine

                        I'd like to add a new search engine (DuckDuckGo), such that I don't have to type a keyword before my search to define the engine. Without the possibility of setting this "other search engine" as a default I'm forced to have to think about typing the keyword each time I want to search. If the majority of my searches will be completed with my desired search engine, then I don't want to have to think about the keyword to search.

                            Please add smooth scrolling to Opera Next. Like IE11 and Firefox 26 has. Very niticable on 120hz monitors. Thank you.

                            • Don't load tabs until selected

                              Could you implement such a feature, like in Firefox.
                              I always have a lot of tabs opened, but when I open my browser I don't want Opera to start loading all of the at once.

                              You should give us these options:
                              1. Load all tabs as per normal. (as they currently do)
                              2. Load all tabs from cache only. (means you have to manually refresh a tab if you want updated content)
                              3. Load tab only when selected

                              It will make life with Opera a lot easier.

                              • Stop execution of background tabs

                                Add global or per tab option to stop execution of tabs you are not watching.

                                Badly written javascript code or flash, for example, hog the cpu.

                                Why execute those bits of code when you are not watching?

                                Most of the time you do not need code or flash executing in the background.

                                This is not a new idea, this is what Android do (except for explicit declared background tasks).

                                So it would be nice to have a global option or a per tab option to enable disable execution in the background.

                                  All sites listed in the 'exception list' won't use Turbo, no matter if Turbo is enabled or disabled.

                                    Especially Flash is a constant crash factor. Please follow the ideas of Chrome and Firefox (3.7 or 4.0)

                                    • Extension / Addons / plugins, but Opera style

                                      This is a wish many have made in the years and many have brought good arguments against it.
                                      But I'm sure Opera could simply give UserJS a little more power (like cross domain AJAX) and we could all be happy

                                      • Open Roadmaps

                                        You are right: Open Standards are more important than Open Source. But why don't you open your Roadmaps concerning these standards? I would really like to know e.g. when you plan to support Drag&Drop API, but I don't expect you to tell us about new features of course...

                                        • Display mails Outlook style (two lines)

                                          Outlook display a big line with the mail header and then a small line with date, addressee etc.
                                          I want this in Opera, too
