Survey results on adding new features to Vivaldi browser

    Hello!

    A week ago, we launched a vote for new features that, in the opinion of users, need to be added to the browser first. In total, more than 10 thousand people from around the world took part in the survey, and although we initially limited the number of available votes to three for each user, a serious struggle for leadership flared up between the functions. However, the most popular function immediately and permanently took first place - the ability to synchronize your data between several installed browsers. But for the second and third places there was a fierce struggle between RSS, “lazy tabs” and smooth scrolling. In the end, the latter pulled ahead and took second place. Below you can see how the votes were distributed throughout the wish list.

    This list includes a variety of wishes related to different components or properties of the browser, so I decided to break the list into categories and see how the voices were distributed inside each. You can see the results below:

    Only three queries apply to performance, but this category is the undisputed leader in terms of the number of votes.

    Concerning the browser interface, the most popular requests are those related to more informative work on the network, as well as opportunities to improve the usability of numerous browser functions.

    The convenience of using a browser (it is now fashionable to use the foreign term "usability") is the most widespread category. And this is not surprising: the browser is the most popular application that is used every day (and, sometimes, all day) by all network users, so it is logical that working with Vivaldi is comfortable and convenient.

    Actually functions - this is what allows you to make a simple and powerful application out of a simple web browser that can provide the user with everything necessary for all occasions of network life.

    At first glance, it may seem strange that this category, which is responsible for fine-tuning the browser to the user's habits, is so few. But in fact, all of the above functions are also directly or indirectly a means of setting up the browser to the requests of its owner.

    And so the categories were distributed according to the average number of votes for each request. As you can see, first of all, users are concerned about the issue of performance and functionality, then the convenience of using the browser follows and the ability to customize its operation and interface according to their preferences. In general, in short we can say that the current user of the Vivaldi browser is more important to "go", and the "checkers" are of last interest to him.

    Yes, anticipating quite logical questions, I hasten to inform that the developers are very carefully working with this list, making plans for the near future, and something (like, for example, spatial navigation or the function of opening a new tab by clicking the middle mouse button on the tab bar) is already in the process of implementation, these functions can also be tried in the recent test build of the Vivaldi browser .
