Tab scroll/Minimum Tab width?

  • (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.

    I think the reason I use tabs in the first place is to not use multiple windows.

    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!
