the only reason that makes Opera as alternative browser after Chrome

  • As a new Opera user, I would be happy with its simple feature of speed dial and top left corner setting button instead of right which makes the browser settings more convenient and effective. However, probably one simple problem that so tiny to conceive makes me feel so much frustrated with Opera and keeps me from deciding it as my dominant browser; that is, the almost invisible tiny gap between tabs and the upper line of the screen.

    this is it. switching tabs are common when u are searching something or doing comparisons. A quickly cursor movement is time-saving things and most people just do it unconsciously. So i am used to moving the mouse as quickly as possible even watching you-tube funny video clips. With fast rambling cursor, accuracy of movements may be much lower. The problem is: With Opera, when I quickly move mouse to top for switching tabs, I always meet the trouble, the gap.

    Compared with Chrome, a faster movement of cursor for switching tabs on the top of the screen is not a question at all. whenever I try to swap two pages in my quick mode operations, no obstacles do exist there. The cursor can go even the very boundary of screen and left clicking is surely worked out. But here in Opera, everything goes harder. I might try 2 or 3 times to left click a tab in order to switch it just because of the gap.

    I don't know if anyone has the same opinion likes me, but I think it is properly welcomed to let u guys know that some peccable problems would devastate the whole idea about one good thing. I hope I can be heard and the improvement will have been made for this.

  • To eliminate the "gap", click on the Opera symbol at top left, then "Settings" and put a check next to "Disable tab bar's top spacing when browser window is maximized".
