On certain displays, it is very hard to see which tab is selected in the tab bar when using dark mode.
Here is a screen shot of current behavior. The "Speed Dial" tab is selected, and the window has the focus, but the selected tab is almost indistinguishable from the adjacent, unselected, gmail tab.
In case the screen shot shows up differently for you, here is a photo of the same thing. Again, you can see how incredibly difficult it is to distinguish the Speed Dial tab as selected vs the adjacent Gmail tab.
This is using a Macbook
Opera Version: 60.0.3255.95 (up to date). Stable.
System:Mac OS X 10.14.5 64-bit (up to date)
Display: External monitor, BenQ LCD BL3201PH 32" Widescreen Backlit IPS 4K
Display is in Scaled mode in Settings, "looks like 2560 x 1440"
- Use the grey shade that is currently used for hovering over a tab to distinguish the selected tab. Use a different shade for hover, likely a somewhat darker one; hover is less in need of strong distinction since you have the mouse pointer to help plus the change in tone as you move the pointer across the tab bar which will catch the eye.
- Make the text of the selected tab bright white to help identify (Chrome does this already).
- Make sure the selected tab is clearly visible even when a different window has focus; for instance, use the same lighter shade of grey for the tab in the tab bar, but use bright white text only if the tab has focus within the window but also the window has focus within the desktop (presuming you want to distinguish when window has focus as well).
- When looking to change window, or change tab, very frustrating to not be able to tell which tab has focus
- Especially an issue when you have the same web site open twice in two different tabs, you are in one of the two tabs now, and you want to select the other one - but looking at the tab bar it is hard to see which of the two is selected and which not.
