Tab stacking as Firefox does it instead of this shrinking mess from Chrome/Opera

  • You do realize, don't you, that you can read the whole title of a tab by mousing over it and reading a tooltip?

  • You do realize, don't you, that you can read the whole title of a tab by mousing over it and reading a tooltip?

    Good luck trying to do that on a Windows tablet using touch...

  • If I touch a tab on a tablet, I get the page.

  • and even after an year the opera has same stupid tabs. imagine
    @concretable do that for 300 tabs and inform us how much time it takes to wait for each tooltip to show you the information
    i find the matter of tab size to be very annoying and it kind of makes tabs useless when you stop being able to switch through them cause u can find the tab you need
    for now firefox does a very great job with tabs. probably the best there is

    Edit: i've just tested iexplorer. guess even iexplorer is much better that opera/chromium lol. im on w8 and have no clue how the "mighty" edge handles tabs

  • @loganj It doesn't even have to be something as extreme as 300 tabs. Things get weird at 50 tabs already. On a 24 inch 1080p monitor. Now imagine you're doing this on a hybrid netbook with 10 inch screen and touch (even at 30 tabs). Tapping the right microscopic tab is really annoying task, not to mention you don't really see anything until tapped. No such problem with Firefox where they elegantly solved this by shrinking tabs only to a certain point and then they stop doing that and you have to slide them left and right to see them all. Some might see it as a problem but isn't really. It just works.

    Or even better, Opera could offer both modes to users to choose from. "Shrinking" and "Sliding". So everyone can be happy using whatever they prefer. No other browser would offer this.

  • i know what you mean.
    even if you don't use touch screen you still have to search all tabs for the correct one.

  • I suggest using bookmarks. It is much easier.

  • @concretable
    really?
    i guess thats why programmers created tabs so that we can use bookmarks

  • @loganj
    You can use tabs temporarily without having to keep them going forever. It is very easy to back up bookmarks.

  • Ey Guys!!!
    Vote in the first post, giving the little hand up, +1, that makes it the most voted, the same ones that wrote here should have given the +1 and it would be up in the most voted!

  • I don't think Opera uses the number of upvotes to decide if something will be implemented or not.
