[Suggestion]Possibility of Naming of Tab Islands?

@marqm I suggested the same here https://forums.opera.com/post/314915
I suggested users to decide how they like to see the islands (just vertical tab or top tab). Also I suggested what should happen when I click on the island (on a top tab), should the island auto expand or it should stay collapsed. It means 2 additional options for the tab islands in the browser Settings.

@andrew84 all this would be a step in the right direction, I agree.
Although I really wonder what is the point in collapsing the island to just a vertical bar? In no time you will have lots of those bars in your task bar and very soon it will be more efficient just to open a fresh tab rather than playing memory with all these featureless bars in your task bar to find what you are looking for. In my opinion only top tab display for tab islands makes sense in the long term.

+1 Would be nice to give tab islands a name, maybe they could appear when the tab island is minimized. Along with this maybe the ability to choose the colour of the tab island pill thingy instead of just sticking with the one Opera picks automatically.

Just to specify my last entry more precisely: I think the tab islands are a good idea in principle. But there has to be some indication of its content when it is collapsed i.m.o., this could be:
- Just the icon
- Top tab title with or without icon
- Custom name
Would be nice also to let the user customize the appearance of the collapsed islands:
- custom name
- custom color of the bar
- custom behavior when clicking on it
All ideas appearing in this thread would be nice to have.
But just renaming an otherwise anonymous vertical bar will not enhance clarity a lot, especially when the task bar will be populated with lots of them.

@emmanuelyee Yes, that would be fantastic. I love Opera, but am seeing more user friendly tools on other browsers. For example, on Vivaldi, you can stack your tabs and then name the stack whatever you want it to be (e.g. 'Travel' on lots of tabs you have open while planning a trip). Please do this Opera. I can't be that hard. Thanks for considering.

With Tab Islands in Opera you just get a coloured bar, but cannot see what is in the individual Tab Islands.
Thanks for considering.

+1 to this.
It would be amazing. It's the last thing that opera is missing that holds me back from transition.
In almost all ways Opera looks like better Chrome alternative, but Chrome has excelent tab grouping, and see what is inside by custom name is GameChanger.
