Hide tab bar

  • Be sure to remove the whole title bar when user hides tabs to save space. 'Opera' button should probably transform to sandwich button in toolbar (like in Chromium) and close-minimize buttons should also move to toolbar.

  • gregorw: Perhaps on the address bar.

  • Yeah! I switched to Opera because it gave me Chrome performance/compatibility with Firefox side tab extension(s). (I predict many others like me will soon find this out and switch). All I need now is to hide the default tabs (which look especially stupid when there's 100 of them crammed in there).

  • I would really like this feature as well. I use the Tab Sidebar extension and it's annoying to have two sets of tabs on the screen. It should be pretty easy to add an option in the View menu to hide the standard Opera tab bar.

  • Waiting for this feature too. Would be perfect with vertical tree tab extension, it's also would look like killer feature of opera

  • And waiting...

  • Google lead me here. With what Firefox is doing with XUL I've been getting worried about losing my treestyle tabs and would love this feature as well. (Also wish the side bar behaved a little closer to how treestyle tabs do, but that's a story for another thread)

  • It really would be a great improvement to switch off the default horizontal tab bar. I've no idea why a side-bar tab interface replacement, appears to be so resisted by browser development. With wide, short screens, it's a massive user interface improvement for anyone that wants screen height to be used to display page content, rather than controls.

  • wow, has any attention been given to this at all???

    as a long-time user of Opera, this is one feature i miss very much...

    actually, the tab bar used to be movable to any of the 4 sides of the screen...

    let's have that again... please!

  • Idea:
    Between "View" and "History", make a new "Tabs" menu as a new way to access all open tabs in the front-most window.
    Include "Hide/Show Tabbar" under the View menu.
    Leave it to add-on developers to create new improved interfaces to select and manage tabs.
    Yay, problem solved.

  • Idea:
    Between "View" and "History", make a new "Tabs" menu as a new way to access all open tabs in the front-most window.

    There is already a tab menu, close to the minimise button.

  • +1 to the request to be able to hide the tab bar. Come on dudes differentiate yourself from the chrome crowd.

  • and waiting... again...

  • me too

  • Please let us hide the bar. Or just let us move tabs to the left side like Vivaldi. Better to leave it to the add-ons though.

  • so what? still waiting for the option to hide tabs bar? at least add some option in the opera:flags, please...

  • Please, still waiting for this.

  • we hope for this needed option!

  • Pleease Opera guys! We really hope for this, it is ridiculous there is no decent browser with decent vertical tabs. The vertical tab is pretty nice, but it's annoying to have such a waste of space in the UI by being force to look at those horizontal tabs as well...you add this one option, and then Opera is truly perfect!

  • It would be really cool to Auto-Hide the Toolbar. In order to show the toolbar again you would move the mouse to the top of the window and the toolbar would slide down. (Similar to how Safari handles Toolbar Auto-Hiding)
