Search bar in the open tabs thingy, please!

  • Hello,

    recently I enabled the function, that tabs stay open after closing Opera, so I typically have a couple thousand tabs open at once and they become really small, so it is hard to get back to an open tab. I recently discovered that downwards-pointing arrow next to the new tab symbol which shows a list of open tabs. It is still very hard to find what you are looking for, so I would like a search bar there. Please do NOT implement that search into the main search bar, because that is why I don't use firefox. When I use the main search bar, I want to open a new tab, not switch to an existing one.


  • I don't mean the smooth scrolling like in firefox, that is horrible and unresponive too, what I mean is that imgur just freezes for a half a second a couple of times when I scroll.

  • Sorry, wrong post. Why can't you delete comments here?

  • A search bar between "Open tabs" and the tab list would be pretty useful, providing it searched all open windows.
