"Close tab" button inconsistency (need option to choose it's placement)

  • I'm using Opera on MacOS and Linux (Ubuntu), and it drives me crazy that "Close tab" buttons are on the left side on Mac, and on the right on Linux.
    On both OS window maintenance buttons (Close, Minimize, Restore) generally are at the left side of the window, but for some reasons "Close tab" for Opera Linux was made on the right side.
    As there is a big field of discussion where it should be due to vast Linux distributives, maybe it is possible to add an option under opera://flags to manage this (at least keeping current state by default)?

    I want to have same UX on all platforms, please.

    Thanks,

  • In Linux the placement depends on your desktop and/or window manager - mine are all on the right.

  • @sgunhouse, Not for me:

    Anyway, having different UX with same browser on 2 different OS is not a good thing.

  • Oh I agree - which is why mine is on the right. My other OS is Windows, and there are a variety of Linux desktops that would let me place the buttons anywhere I choose - on those desktops I choose to put them on the right in standard Windows order, since I can't change Windows.

    In practical terms, right now this would be the same as the CSD thread, though if they do implement an option of their own (which is technically a wish-list topic) that would be another story. Based on that technicality, the thread belong in the Feature requests forum, and I'll move it for you.
