  • In Opera 22, unlike any other browser, the little icon for the website is also the "close tab" button. If you have ~ 10 tabs open, the icon changes to a close button when you hover over it. (With more tabs, you can switch with the first press.)

    So you click on the visual aspect of the tab you want to go to and it gets closed.

    I can't find any option for moving the close button, or for disabling it until the tab has focus. It certainly seems like the type of thing that should have been caught during basic usability testing.

  • Hi, I also would like to have this changed. But apparently Opera won't ever even discuss this. Back in the old windows days, you had all the variable and parameters in some files on the hard disk, and you could just fiddle around with them.
