    (by the way search doesnt work, always bumps me back to forum index) I have a question: is there a way to enable tab scrolling/setting a minimum tab width similar as it is in firefox? I started off with opera dev when I heard of the native adblocker and VPN features which really are intresting. but there is one problem: similar to chrome (and IE), having a lot of tabs is a pain because the tab get smaller and smaller in the end having just a portion of or not even a single character left to read. Comparing Firefox which has a minimum tab width and then changing to a scrolling mode always giving you a read on the start of the tab title.

    so long story short: is there a setting (or extension) for this?

    Nope, not at this moment.

    For now you can try using multiple windows.

    Don't know about extensions that do it.

      but it is sad that there's nothing for that.

      opera dev runs quite a bit faster than FF (well having a half empty profile and not 100+ tabs open probably helps) but this is annoying

      IIRC they said a while ago that they were working on some tab improvements so maybe you can dream about better tab handling in the future.

        Please hurry up. This is the main reason why I'm not using Opera. I missed that feature already 5 years ago!
