Tab indicators?

  • Is there an extension which will add an indicator to tabs such as Facebook to indicate new notifications on the webpage a la Chrome/Vivaldi. I can't see a setting within Opera to do that.

  • I thought that there is such a feature already in Opera.

  • This very website will display a small number next to the favicon (and inside a red circle) indicating how many notifications you have. How - I don't really know.

  • Hmm I think I've ever seen it working on this page. Not sure though.

  • @rafiki Unless I'm misunderstanding something, what you asking is done by the sites themselves and should work on almost all modern browsers.

    Thanks. That being the case Opera seems inconsistent. This morning I checked Vivaldi and Chrome at the same time as Opera. Facebook and MeWe both showed unread notifications in the tabs of the other browsers but Opera didn't. However, the tab for this forum showed unread notifications in it's tab in Opera. Gmail showed unreads as it always does but that is set up in the Gmail Lab features. However, Vivaldi still showed Gmail unreads without the Lab feature set but Opera didn't. Curious.

  • When I think of tab indicators, I think of how Chrome and Firefox call out updates with blue dots to show you something has changed.

    Vidaldi kind of does this, but I can't make them go away very well.

    I'd love to see Opera have something like Chrome and Firefox.
