How to deactivate the annoying page preview?

  • When I touch the tabs with the cursor a preview pops up. It's so annoying. How to deactivate this function?

  • Opera Menu > Settings > User Interface > Uncheck ''show tab preview''.

  • Personal I dont know why browser developers think tab previews is useful. Normally one is already able to see what tab that is. What would be more useful is an option to display tab history on hover.

  • If you have a lot of tabs open, they get so small you can't read what's written to identify them. The preview helps for sure there. Also, sometimes what's written on the tab, isn't enough to remember what the page is. Again the tab preview is helpful. I think it's a plus, myself.

  • I suppose some users find it useful. But normally most sites have favicons nowadays and that is usually enough to identify pages. Anyways if I have that many tabs open, before I go hovering one by one I just look at my history panel. Way more information there

  • Hi Opera.Tabs preview is great just because it is big and you can read everything(adress.etc)
