Tab stacking, tiling and tab grouping

Vivaldi feature of tiling tabs is nice. View multiple tabs in one window. Watch multiple videos ect. Opera should definitely add
it. Can resize, scroll, delete add. Different layouts They use stacking tabs too which is handy. And their appearance customization is great.
But they completely lack a decent workplace interface which is what I love about Opera.

@jlitz88 Agree. I have had a look at Vivaldi. Nice setup. But with the tiling extension I added to Opera, I get most of that now too. And, as you say, the Opera Workspace is far superior and more useful for the way I work. It's great though that there are so many browser options out there. I did try Brave recently, but the crypto stuff drove me nuts. I also love the Opera Flow option. Very handy

@rjf-campbell I tried that one out for a while settled on https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tile-tabs-we/lbnnfjfjdijcnaakaebgcoemmlicjbnl?hl=en-US but always open to find the best.

I'm sorry, I find workspaces to be frustrating, and a bad idea when group tabs works so easily. There's not even a right click function to add an open tab to a workspace. So I open it up in the new workspace, or try and drag it over, which is a pain. Also, when I click on a workspace in another window, it's empty. Yet each workspace appears to be a new browser window. Mind you, I'm using GX, so it's implementation might still be buggy, but either way, it's not convenient to use and it's definitely driving me back towards a browser that has group tabs.

When workspaces are enabled, a tab is always in some workspace. So, if you want the tab in another workspace, you right-click the tab, goto "move tab to workspace", and choose the workspace you want to move it to.
Or, are you saying you want to right-click a tab and have a "Create new workspace and move this tab to it" option?
Also, when I click on a workspace in another window, it's empty. Yet each workspace appears to be a new browser window.
Workspaces are a visual thing. The tabs from all workspaces in a window are still technically together on the same tab bar and are all from the same window they're in. When you open a new window, just like if you had workspaces turned off, you get a blank slate of tabs that's separate from other windows. So, since each window has its own tabs, the workspaces in each window only show tabs from their window. There's no sharing between windows as far as the collection of tabs in each workspace goes.

Enabling the tab group feature in the workspace would be really helpful.
I normally work on multiple tasks at the same time, so I use the workspace to manage them in priority. However, I also want to group all tabs that belong to a single task, so that I can easily see how many steps I have done for the task, and how many tasks are included in the current priority workspace.

@hien-reese +1 for Chrome-style tab grouping.
The code is presumably public and all that needs to happen is to adapt it to Opera's style.
Even with workspaces, it's still handy to have (sub)grouping. I literally have a dozen or more contexts of tabs. I don't want a dozen workspaces. I want to subdivide workspaces into groups of tabs occasionally.

Tab grouping (stacking) is such a huge loss. Workspace is a different thing and I hope Opera come to conclusion that tab grouping should be back again.

Even if user tab grouping is gone, I'd love an option to have the browser auto-stack tabs from the same domain - if I have six tabs open from Amazon, show them as one tab that expands on hovering.
And there should be a setting to use two or three rows for the tab bar. Plenty of room on a lot of monitors to do it.
