Just bring back an option for tab stacking!

  • Yes!! Too many old features missing .. and shortcuts changed! Please bring back all the features. Thanks

  • YESSSS!!!

    I always loved Internet Explorer coloured and auto stacking/grouping
    Opera12 used to have it with a plugin call autostack

    i do not understand why the function is missing, it is the KEY of why Opera was successful at the first place!!!!

    PLS BRING IT BACK!!!!

  • I'm all for this. I stacking tabs, especially when researching stuff. I also loved the fact I could open a private tab instead of having to open a completely new window for it, hogging up more RAM.

  • +1

    Last try to enhance tab management was not very successful (tab preview, now disabled by default...).

    Even if I personally think that this new tab preview was one of the good ideas of the "new" Opera, I definitely miss something way more powerful when we have a lot of open tabs. Tab stacking was really nice.

  • I stopped using opera for a few versions. I have always preached to my friends how opera is been always ahead of the competitors with innovations. I just installed the latest version precisely because I got tired of the shitty tab management they have. but it seems this program has been dumbed down now to match them 😞

    I could not find the "sessions" manager. I used to have a different session for development, music, work, research etc. I cannot find it in this new version.

  • Simply +1...

  • Adding to the chorus! I've been a loyal Opera user for over 12 years and this is an essential feature for me. I always have many tabs open for various tasks that I need to revisit later on, and want to keep grouped together and out of the way while I do other things.

    I would (very reulctantly) switch to another browser if this functionality was available elsewhere, but I can't find any Chrome or Firefox extensions that do manual tab stacking the way Opera did. There are many somewhat similar tab productivity extensions, yes, but none with manual tab staking that I can find.

  • Oh, I've posted in newer thread lol. Vote me in 🙂

  • I want tab stacking also. Much easier to group different kind of tasks!

  • I just uninstalled opera 12 to install this. And the first thing I noticed was no more tab stacking.

    Is this a joke? Tab stacking was the single feature that kept me using opera for all these years.

  • After more than a year of using Blink-based Opera there are two features that I still miss sorely:

    1. privat tabs (instead of private windows) - just so convenient - and if they would just invert colors (white on black instead of black on white) nobody would get confused with them...
    2. tab stacking - I usually have multiple tabs belonging to one task and there's no way as convenient as having them sit right there in groups - I used them in conjunction with AutoStack and an extension that auto-opened Stacks (and closed all of the others) when you activated a tab within (can't seem to find it anymore)

    +1 to having that back :love:

  • I'm cynical about Opera anymore and I too used to be enthusiastic about it. Now I just use it(still version 12.16, couldn't deal with the new version) because it's the most tolerable of browsers I've used. Please bring back tab stacking and the other things that made earlier versions the best(of Opera and browsers). What's it going to take? If most Opera users today stopped using Opera would they finally start...eh, I'm not holding my breath.

  • eh, I'm not holding my breath.

    I wouldn't either, you could turn purple, or even worse, blue!!!.

  • Opera is being developed. We don't really know what the final vision for the new browser is. We can say that the new browser is fast, compatible with most sites online unlike the older browser and showing both innovation and a readiness to listen and add features that have been requested. Given that it has been entirely rewritten, time is the order of the day. In other words, be patient and wait for it. If that order is too big for you, then continue with the older browser and keep an eye on the new browser's development.

  • I suppose they will make the tabs stacking. To many people want it.
    So be of good thoughts.

    I hope you are right.
    I'm also in for "Tab Stacking" as one of the painfully missing features for me.

  • So many new verssions and we still don't have it.
    I wonder what the devs are changing in these verssions because I don't see any changes.

  • Another vote. I am feeling a bit distraught about this whole thing. This is life changing in a bad way. Please can someone help me uninstall this massive downgrade so I can go back to what I had.

    The only reason I use Opera is for the ability to stack tabs and save sessions. These features made Opera a million kazillion miles better than any other browser. Now they're gone? Also, there's no ability to open a private tab anymore.

  • I'd like to add that Opera would crash more often than other browsers and wasn't always compatible with every website, yet I USED Opera BECAUSE I COULD STACK TABS. Without this feature I am definitely not going to use Opera.

  • The old Opera does indeed crash quite a bit. However I would've assumed a long time ago that they would have made significant improvements a long time ago to address that issue. I had to uninstall the new Opera because I couldn't stand it either, I don't remember exactly where to get the better versions but I think that they're still somewhere on this site.
