Hello. Opera have being my favorite browser for around 10 years. Many features leave the other browsers behind, including UX features, which are among the most important ones. Simple things that make the final user feel it suppose to work as it is, flowing effortlessly. But one main feature still brings a clunky user experience: moving tabs between windows:
- When dragging a tab to another window, the attaching feature feels awkward, clunky, and heavy. The time holding the tab trying to snap at the new window is painful under the UX eye. Worst when trying to do it as the last tab.
One browser that makes it feel so polished is Google Chrome, where the whole movement and auto snap feels so natural.
I would like to humbly ask:
- to the UX designers and developers to review this feature, the time to snap a tab into another Opera window;
- Or, at least, to have an easy way to configure it in the preferences;
- And to fix the snapping at the end of the tab list. This one is the worst behavior so far, gravitating between being hard, aggravating impossible;
I don't want to sound pretentious when advising to check other browsers as references, in that case, Google Chrome. I know many people can take this kind of idea personally, mainly when talking about something so broad as UX decisions. But please, check how easier it feels to do the same features in this other browser for reference.
I hope the whole problem and idea made sense. Feel free to reach me for more information if needed, and I will gladly reply. And thanks in advance to everyone who reads this. Cheers.
