Workspace - count indicator
Cayde last edited by
Honestly, workspaces are unusable for me without some sort of indicator that there are some tabs open inside workspace.
A little dot just like the built in messenger and whats-app already have.
I guess if you work with them on daily basis you don't really need that but if you work with them occasionally - that's completely different story. I would forget I put something to another workspace a hour later
I already wrote it here:
but I feel like this deserves a topic of its own.

Instead of dot I'd better prefer workspace's blue icon if there are opened tabs in the workspace and when hovering by the cursor there should be a tooltip 'Workspace name + number of tabs opened'.
If there are no tabs in workspaces, then icon will be the regular black/white in light/dark themes respectively.

@andrew84 I'm all for the feature, but I like aesthetic solutions. The less words, the more informative. We all know Workspaces keep tabs and nothing more. So "with X tabs" is redundant. Simply alone X should suffice. But..
Let it be for example:
Workspace 3 - 5
Workspace 3 / 5
Workspace 3 | 5
Workspace 3 (5)
Workspace 3 
I always changed names of all my workspaces to be more informative so I was shifting the numbers to the first places. The best solution to the count number yet it'd be to use # for tabs number. Selection of separation mark(s) should be left to the user. Thus you might define your tooltips more freely.
Workspace 3 | #
However If you moved workspace number to the first place you'd have more aesthetic options.
3 Workspace - #
4 Workspace / #
5 Workspace | #
6 Covid (#)
7 Weather [#]
The hash will be changed to the real number by Opera itself.
