Opera GX: Side-Bar Features

  • Hi Folks,

    Can there be an option to open GX Corner, Speed Dial and Personal News features from the side-bar instead of them opening up in a new tab please?

    Currently when clicking on either of these from the side-bar they pop open a new tab but if I am opening these, it is to interact with the content of these before then needing a new tab, when clicking a link from within. Sometimes however, I simply want to take a brief look at the content and then move back to another task, which each time means me having to close the tab that was opened.

    If they could behave more like a pinned tab when set to the side-bar, it would be a small benefit on a regular occasion, so cumulatively large benefit over time.

    Another benefit to this is one less tab opening in a browser already cluttered with "productivity".

    I envisage this working with the page being anchored to the side-bar (like a pinned tab) and then either; clicking links from there then opens them in new tabs, or, the respective 'feature' tab acts as its own mini browser, that reloads subsequent links within it and contains a home button, should the user wish to go back to the default page for that feature.

    Many thanks,
    mrAlienHead
