Please bring back the option for a title bar

  • It would be much appreciated if the developers would consider allowing the option to enable the title bar. For example, Firefox, while also removing the title bar by default, has an option in the preference for the user to re-enable the default system title bar. It would be great if future Opera releases included this as well.

    While removing the title bar appears to be a new fad in many browsers, many users prefer to use the title bar:

    1. Moving the window around: currently there is hardly any clickable space to move a window. There is not enough space above the tabs to click and move a window.
    2. Switching between windows: when switching between windows I often click the title bar, this ensure I am not clicking anything else in the window that I don't want to. The neutral title bar zone enables a user to quickly switch between windows using their mouse.
    3. Remote desktop: some users have reported that the title bar is necessary in a remote desktop environment.
    4. Usability/Interaction: every other application has a title bar, so it doesn't make sense to interact with each application differently.

    Please consider bringing back the title bar. All that is needed is an option to re-enable it, like in Firefox and Chrome. It shouldn't be complicated to implement. This is a feature that many users want back:
