Rename the "Reopen closed tab" function

  • Hi, the "Reopen closed tab" menu option should be renamed to "Reopen closed page".

    Because history of the tab is not preserved, it's in fact only the last page that gets reopened. Current function name causes a lot of confusion.

    Thanks,
    Saskatchewan

  • I guess it's implicit that it means to open the last closed tab with its last content only and not with the whole history.
    And at least here the history seems to be preserved.

  • @leocg No, reopening a tab in a web browser means that you can go back and forward through the tab history. In current state only the last page gets reopened, which is different.

    At least if it would say clearly what it does, I wouldn't be negatively surprised nor angry every time I need to reopen a tab.

  • @saskatchewan Well, it may be your interpretation but it's not mine and probably not others' too.

  • @leocg Well, it is indeed my interpretation and the interpretation of many others' too 🙂

    A tab is not only a control element of a GUI, but it's also a container for – in case of a web browser – the page and its properties, like: it's back and forward history, per tab zoom, etc.

    That's why I added this suggestion.
