Workspaces as separate sessions
A Former User last edited by
Firstly, I thought it would be separate sessions so that I can use my work accounts within the same browser. But I found that workspaces are useless. Please make it like separate sessions please.

It would be very useful to elevate the use of workspaces into independent sessions, where you could for example log in into the same service with different accounts.
This would be extremely useful when dealing with several accounts on a single website (personal/job for example).
I know you could use private tabs to login into other accounts but this would be much more practical.

Google Chrome has this feature we all know, and is perfect. But, Vivaldi also has this feature which looks like it is similar to google chrome, but it is very forceful of sort. Example, in Vivaldi if you open a new window with "Profile 1", it also loads "Profile 2" and all its extensions, opened pages and data.
This is an Important feature and hope Opera will implement it as quickly and as perfect as google has done. And, if the team is already working on it, we would be glad to know that.

Account Related Workspace
User have 2 different email account,
and since lot's of stuff can build up having user to login and logout such account will be pain. (especially for provider doesn't provide fast account switch like google do)
with now days computing capabilities and how efficient opera handle things, i think having workspace to be specifically bind into user account will be more efficient and convenience for user who have more than 1 account and doesn't want to waste time to login and logout their account.
so there will be 2 types of workspace
- regular workspace, login 1 account and the credential also shared with other workspace
- contained workspace. login an account and the credential will not shared with any other workspace. even if the user right click to send the tab outside of that specific workspace the tab will automatically logout or cleared cache and the user will be notified such behavior is not allowed or if he choose so the content and credentials will be cleared when it appears outside that contain workspace.

I just created my account to support this. We need profiles/workspaces with different sessions/cookies/storage.
This is kinda becoming a deal breaker to me.

Allowing session isolation for workspaces would be great! For example there can be simple option when creating workspaces "allow session sharing" or "forbid session sharing" and that's it. For a lot of people this feature will be very useful.

Personally (web developer) I have this setup:
- Main opera installation: personal usage and most of work related stuff (without Google)
- Portable opera for work's google stuff (Google isolation 1)
- Portable opera for personal's google stuff (Google isolation 2)
- Portable opera for custom web testing
Workspace isolation would be great

Sad to see this has been sitting out there for 2+ years w/o getting any love.
I installed Opera Just For this reason to see if I could get something like Firefox Multi-Account Containers on a Chromium browser.
I was very disappointed when I logged into gmail in 1 workspace and was still logged in on the other workspaces.

@sniperfox Opera GX has profiles and there is a flag to enable profiles in regular Opera, although it doesn't do anything currently.
So, there may be a chance that multiple profiles will be allowed at some point in the future. However, each workspace being a different profile I think has very low chances to happen.

Another one just to support this.
Workspace isolation should be the best thing to happen… it will give the organization of Opera with the containers of Firefox.
BTW that is how I always envisioned what Workspace should be… Firefox containers is too unorganized because you can have a tab from work at side from a tab from school.
Workspace fix and organize that.
Now we need that each Workspace can have it own set of cookies, logins, etc.
Make this happen… be ahead of others.

@edmarcio No, no and again no. And once again: No! Workspace should stay as it is. There are profiles for different plugins, different cookies, settings, etc. And that's what Opera should get.

For me this feature is the only thing that is missing that makes me not migrate to use only Opera, I tried a lot of times, but without this feature, it's impossible.
When you start using Workspaces it seems that it will do exactly that, different sessions. But not, it's all the same session, so when you have more then one profile, like personal, work, etc. It's messy.
Besides it... Great job dev team, this browser is fantastic ️

@rodrigocipriani 100% agree with you Bro! I'm on the web since 1996 I have been used to test so many web browser (Netscape, IE, Firefox, Vivaldi, Brave, Maxthon, and so on) even the last one ARC really pleasant to use, but finally they missed their target as well ARC can not be a mass market web browser...
Please Opera don't missing out what its so obvious for all of us. Trust the real experience of your community!!!
Workspace = Different Session No debate about it for me and for manys its just so obvious it has to be ^^

@jojo0587 I read your post but that is not what is being requested here.
Workspace like it is today is very much useless for use... it act only as a form of organization that doesn't help on day by day use.
Workspace should use the same profile but just like the Private Window to have it own cache and cookies... you don't need a new profile for Private Windows.
Using different profiles is possible today having two browser windows opened at same time.
What we are asking is to have isolation between Workspaces so you can use the same web apps with differents Ids in each Workspace like in Workspace A have the whatsapp from your personal number and in Workspace B have the whatsapp from your business number.
Firefox is imo a bad browser but it does that with Containers but having conteiners in each tab seems a bit confusing and not organized enough.... so since Opera released the Workspace feature I'm wating to it have something like conteiners for each Workspace... that is how Workspace can be useful imo.
