Want to simulate Google Chrome's tab-process look in Opera?

removed title bar with winchanger, removed the menu bar with a shortcuts edit.
if I absolutely have to have my titlebar back for moving the window (which never happens), double tapping f11 brings it back, and then I kill the title bar again with a winchanger script that I have saved.

simple stuff, but I'm so anal about screen real estate and I can't believe its taken me this long to get it done.

just an update, I've replaced the opera shortcut on my taskbar with a small batch file to make my life easier when I have to restart, so I don't have to go digging into the command line to run this drat thing. type in your directories, save in notepad as a .bat and you're good to go. I think the timeout command only works in vista.

code:
@ECHO OFF
ECHO Killing Opera title bar in 5 seconds...
start /d "YOUR OPERA DIRECTORY HERE" opera.exe
start /d "YOUR WINCHANGER DIRECTORY HERE" winchanger.exe Window-ontop:cmd,0
timeout /T 5 /nobreak
start /d "YOUR WINCHANGER DIRECTORY HERE" winchanger.exe Window-Title:Opera,0
EXIT

Now that I'm using the visual tabs (which are growing on me a little), it seems I'm forced to use the extender menu, the behavior of which I detest. I guess I'm too used to Firefox's extender where I can scroll the tabs if I move the mouse wheel by hovering over the tab bar.

I will also try out winchanger later. Sounds perfect.

I use Opera quite a bit and really like it but I was wondering is there any way to get the tabs to work in the same way as they do in Internet Explorer 7? On there I can middle click three different links and they'll appear next to the active tab in the order I clicked them so 1, 2 and 3. The only options I've been able to see with Opera is "open new tab next to active", which will have a similar effect but the order is 3, 2, 1.

preferences -> advanced -> shortcuts - > middle click options
"open in background tab"

If you're talking about holding the right mouse button and using the scrollwheel, I honestly forgot about that since I don't use it much, if ever.

/boggle.

its the single greatest mouse gesture there is. A part of me dies every time I see someone with 8 firefox WINDOWS open, manually clicking in between each of them AND clicking on back/forward buttons instead of using mouse side buttons or the freaking backspace key (on a laptop anyway).

I'm wanting to like Opera enough to use it regularly, but I'm having problems with scrolling. It's scrolling twice as many lines per scroll as is listed in the Mouse settings in Control Panel. As in, if it's set to scroll 3 lines, Opera scrolls 6. Meanwhile, Firefox scrolls 3 like it's supposed to.

Is there any hidden setting for this? I'm using the 10 beta by the way. And no Logitech SetPoint or anything like that, just the regular old Mouse settings in Control Panel.

you know...I just realized that mine does this too, except its not just opera. neither logitech setpoint or control panel can adjust my scrolling size in ANY app. weird.

NashAsh posted:

I was wondering if anyone else had this issue:

I run into trouble when I click on a dropdown menu/box, and then hit a key to select an item, and then hit Enter to activate it. The link/option doesn't "activate" correctly.

For example, when I use the forums dropdown box at the bottom of a page, I click the dropdown menu where it says "Please select one:"

When I press "U" for User Control Panel, the correct item is selected. However, when I hit Enter, it takes me to an invalid forum. It's most annoying when I'm entering my address at online stores, and I'm using the dropdown menu to select my state.

Does anyone else have this problem with Opera 10 beta (or alpha)? I had the same problem in alpha but I was hoping they'd fix it in beta.

yeah, google does something similar. when I type something in and hit enter, most of the time it doesn't catch the keypress and I have to manually click on the search button.

When I had something like this, it was being caused by something else setting it - in my case, KatMouse and SetPoint were fighting each other and I was up to 1 page at a time. There are some other apps that can affect scrolling, anything that interacts with mouse (or potentially keyboard hotkeys, though it's unlikely) could be changing this.

oh, drat. I cannot possibly live without katmouse (horray another katmouse user!)

Finally switched over to using tabs instead of windows in Opera and I like it alright. Mostly I switched because I discovered Right Click + Scroll and also installed Windows 7. Is there a way for the tabs to show up grouped like Explorer windows or IE tabs do in Aero preview on the taskbar when mousing over the Opera icon? I figured it's probably something for which we'll have to wait for the official release of Windows 7. (My main reason for not using tabs before was that I like to Alt+Tab through everything that's open. I can do this now with IE).

btw, ctrl-tab cycles through tabs in most applications I've tried. just an alternative to those who aren't mouse gesture initiated yet.

the Profile folder is deprecated from Opera 10, as far as I can tell. Appdata\Local\Opera\Opera is the previous "root" folder while Appdata\Roaming\Opera\Opera is what used to be the Profile folder. Put it in the root there.

Heh, all this time and I never knew that one. I think I learnt a number of gestures ages ago and never expanded my knowledge since. Guess I'll have to dig out the list and see what others I've been missing.


Not sure what you mean by 'bring back the title bar'. All windows have a title bar . As for the tabs, in 10.5 the tabs seem to be transparent by default but it isn't really noticeable unless you set the colour scheme to 'None' in the Appearance dialog.

edit: I haven't found a way to disable Aero Peek within Opera yet, mainly because I don't really want to. One option would be to modify your Opera shortcut to launch in Vista compatibility mode - this will keep the Aero Glass effects but disable the Win 7-specific stuff.



mine looks like that, and the little space up top disappears completely when maximized. basically, just like chrome.

edit: vista compatibility mode does the trick, thanks!

I just reinstalled Windows (with the final Win7 build) yesterday and of course installed Opera, which was probably not the latest build at that time already (3248). The process was started almost exactly 24 hours ago (though about half of that time the PC was in standby mode) and now it's up to 5140 GDI objects and 385MB with 8 tabs. Are these issues addressed in the later snapshots? I think some of the release notes mention this, but whether or not it worked is another question...
opera has always been a memory hog for me. I have a few google searches and gmail running, and I'm at 360. (10.10) Come to think of it, the opera process ALWAYS takes 30-60 seconds to quit. blazing fast once it actually manages to start back up, however.

mobby_6kl posted:

By far the worst thing about it is that the search toolbar shifts the whole page down each time it pops up. What the hell! It's extremely annoying and makes no sense when leaving at the bottom (where it was previously) completely avoids the problem. Maybe there's an option to change this as well, but I wasn't able to find it so far.
I can see why it would make sense to just lay the search bar on top of the page instead of scrolling it down but honestly I never even noticed it until reading your post.

This doesn't sound right - from >6 hours of usage with ~15 tabs and 470 MB of ram the 10.10 process closes in ~5-8 seconds after disposing the window. If it's just disposing objects the time should be directly proportional to memory use. 30 to 60 seconds of shutdown time regardless of state happens on none of my machines with none of my opera installs.
