bring back old tab cycle order

  • For control+tab key, the new Opera has adopted a tab cycle order from other browsers (Firefox, Chromium) which I argue was a bad move.

    Old Opera behavior:

    • ctrl+tab cycles tabs back to most recently viewed
    • subsequent hits goes to tabs you viewed even earlier

    New behavior:

    • ctrl+tab cycles to the tab visually on the right of the current one

    Rationale on why I like the old behavior:

    • tabs that are closer to each other in time are closer to each other in number of key strokes
    • allows you to quickly go back and forth between two most recent tabs which, at least to me, is a very common use case

    Rationale on why I dislike the new behavior:

    • hitting ctrl+tab generally jumps to some old tabs which I don't currently care of
    • prevents my old workflow (subjective!)
  • Press Ctrl + F1 or set the activation order flag in opera://flags to use Ctrl + Tab.

  • Press Ctrl + F1 or set the activation order flag in opera://flags to use Ctrl + Tab.

    Thanks a lot. I didn't know it was possible to enable this.

  • This discussion can be closed. I couldn't find a way to do it myself.
