Just bring back an option for tab stacking!

  • Opera people! Another long time user here... still using v 12.16(how can I upgrade to v 12.17?) saying once again for all long time users... It needs to come back! It is not novel, cuter or whatever you think it was to have Opera without this feature! Among other good things that made v 10 - 12 the best internet had!

  • Any other browser with this tab stacking function today? getting sick of hoping they reimplement it. (the main reason I started using opera).

    either you agree to lack some new features and technologies, go back in time and use the M05T P0WERFUL, THE G0D OF 4LL BR0W5ER5, THE M45TERPiECE, HI5 H0LY GRE4TNE55... OPERA 12.17 ...M4Y iT BE BLE55ED 4ND RE5T iN PE4CE

    or try the still-in-work technical preview release of Vivaldi https://vivaldi.com

  • The problem with Vivaldi is that I don't like their implementation of tab stacking at all.

  • i need tabs stacking too, pls bring back!

    This is an users' forum, you should not expect any answers from Opera here although it may happen ocasionally.

    This kind of answer may lead users to think that the feature will be imolemented, when it may not be true.

  • I think they will "add" this feature when it will be implemented in Chrome, since nowadays Opera is just a fork of Google Chrome. My opinion: with a new engine it will take too many efforts for developers, therefore it will not be implemented in Opera independently. It also explains the silence from the developer's side - they do not want to "lose face".

  • I am still using tab utilies add-on with Firefox ver 28 with tab stacking just because I must have tab stacking like when I used to use Opera. I love opera's focus for always focusing on speed and off the shelf usefulness. Please bring this tab stacking feature back. I suspect the the switch from presto to webkit engine is preventing this. Any thoughts?

  • Vertical representation of tabs is far superior to horisontal one.

    You can view far more tabs in a vertical list and still have the ability to see tab names, which isn't possible with a lot of tabs on a tab bar.

    Now, several extensions already grant the ability to view tabs vertically.

    For Opera specifically: Tab Sidebar

    For Chrome and Opera: Tabs Outliner

    Both of these have tab stacking already.

    Duplicating this functionality for outdated method of representing tabs horisontally on a tab bar is just a waste of time.

  • Vertical representation of tabs is far superior to horisontal one.

    This topic is about tab stacking and not about vertical tab bar.

  • I too would love to have this feature back - I have been using Vivaldi Browser for a while and they have it (I switched back to Opera just because its UI and page rendering is faster). It is awesome for managing tabs efficiently and I think many users would benefit from it.

  • +1 for Tab Stacking.

  • I'm not seeing any other way to vote for suggestions around here, so I will say "+1 for Tab Grouping". 🙂

  • +1 for tab stacking - missing it since the old Opera 12!

    I have open a lot of tabs from e.g. discogs.com and want stack them because I want to continue with them on the next day.

    I can not use "open new window" because only the state of the last closed windows will be saved and re-opened after restart.

    Note: New beta release of MS Edge will have "pinned tabs" ... but tab stacking more important!

  • Yep.... Tab stacking is it! This is the thing. Best invention ever made to a browser, seriously.
    People, bring it back, honestly, bring it back now!

  • I wonder why there is no tab stacking already. This is one of the most wanted feature from the begining of the new Opera. What is the issue about that feature? Why do developers waiting with that feature? Can someone explain what is the catch?

  • I really like Opera and have tried to stick with it for a while now, but after loosing my sessions two times in a short period of time after a incident with two tabs open. I dont care any more, you had the session saving from 12 and loved it. I will go over too a different provider until you bring it back as standard.

  • please bring back tab stacking!

  • +1 for this request.

    I came back to Opera browser after quite a while, such a shame they don't like to work on it anymore, like, they don't have enough funding? They closed their MyOpera page etc, and browser is 'too' simple. Are they gonna shut down completely?
