Survey on tab usage (Opera official)

  • Give your feedback!

    This is an official survey posted by the Opera developers.

  • Thanks for the heads up.

  • Sorry to bump, but this ended up at the bottom of page two very quickly, and I just wanted to make sure that as many people as possible had a chance to contribute before the survey is closed.

  • I'm surprised this isn't stickied at the top.

  • I'm surprised this isn't stickied at the top.

    No option to do that. At least that i can see.

  • Unless I'm missing something, what in the world do you mean by Tab usage?

  • No option to do that. At least that i can see.

    Ah, I just assumed there was an option.

  • What do you use tabs for in Opera. Some obvious examples are:

    1. Multi-tasking (using a new tab to do something else)
    2. Opening multiple items (search results, links to articles) without losing the original page
    3. Keeping tabs open to sites you visit frequently (webmail, social sites) so you can quickly switch to them at need.
    4. Presuming you use Continue from last time, keeping tabs for later perusal

    The actual options listed are somewhat more specific, though the main thing I use tabs for (checking things when replying in forums) wasn't really listed as a choice. Also there were a couple of choices that sounded pretty much the same to me ... You can select up to 3 options, so don't think you need to confine yourself to the top reason.

  • Thanks for this survey....

  • Would be nice if the survey would be hosted in a place that doesn't get blocked - for example on Operas own servers.

    But hey - no survey will bring back the power of O12 where I could and often did open 100+ tabs at a time and worked my way though them when doing deep queries on a topic. No, stash is no alternative for that, especially because I can't set it to update in regular intervals or notify me when the site reloaded with new content.

    Other uses: See the comment of sgunhouse above.

  • @quhno what do you think of the tabs hibernation feature?

  • I see this is old thread, but I found a bug and filled a bug report. You can't open 100 tabs when this option is turned on. I'm not sure when it triggers, but sometimes I can open 70 and sometimes 90 tabs, but always when it starts every new tab will be just a blank page with "Loading..." title.
