I can't help but notice how 90% of feature requests on this forum go unanswered and unacknowledged. It feels like that section of the forum is there just to make users feel like they have a say in features. I think more effort from the developers or whoever else is in charge of passing these messages on needs to improve because its actually ridiculous. I've read through many of the requests myself and much of them would be good additions to the browser. We all have the option of choosing between dozens of unique browsers, I think at the very least acknowledging requests would do a lot for retention. Is it a good idea? A bad idea? Why? Will it be added to a queue of features to be added or should we forget about it all together? There is a request on the android section once every 3 days on average I would say, I hardly think it would take much time to reply. Maybe this will go without a reply too, who knows.

Tab groupingSuggestions and feature requests
Tab view on opera is great. It'd be pretty cool of we could group alike tabs in a stack kind of like a deck of cards. Nothing changes except adding grouped tabs to a stack on the tab.
Hold home button to get functionsSuggestions and feature requests
Suggestion to improve user experience and flow while using the app.
Add a hold functionality to the home and opera icons on the bottom bar. Holding home could close the current tab (currently we have to tap the tabs icon, then swipe the tab away, then tap another tab to get out), and holding the opera icon could bring up the page settings dialog (find on page, add to bookmarks, etc), instead of having it all the way at the top of our huge displays. Keep the url bar up there, but just that. So clean and functional.
There are two ways you can do this. Add these functionalities as an optional setting, or make it default on the app.
One more thing, the dialog for the opera icon currently opens covering the bottom bar. That should be moved up to allow the user to tap the button again to exit, instead of having to tap out of the dialog.
