This is another vertical tab thing that the Firefox Sidebery extension does really well with an "Except if panel is overflowing"
Not sure if that implementation would be sufficient/complementary to the alternate hotkey to avoid accidental scrolling. It is for me.
@donac64 This can almost be achieved with a command chain that clones the current tab, then tiles it with itself.
Scrolling is independent for each tile
However, selection and typing are also independent because they are not two views of the same tab, but two cloned tabs.
My request for Split Tab is tagged as DONE, though it is not quite what you requested.
I just want to bump this thread.
I will not be installing any extensions because there doesn't seem to be any opensource alternative I can audit.
The great suspender and others of it's name have been used to spread malware and I think it's irresponsible to recommend using extensions. I would rather that everyone use a native feature instead of blindly trusting some extension developer to not abuse users.
Hmmm. I tried tabs outliner in 2013/2014 and was completely repelled by it. I simply could not figure out how anyone could be comfortable with its interface or its operations. I just could not stand it.
Then I see people saying they can't live without it, and it highlights for me how people really don't think or operate the same as each other. It was the least intuitive, most frustrating and irritating way to use tabs I had ever tried, and yet some say exactly the opposite.
To each their own...
@npro MS may be very very late to the party, but it's better to be late than never... right? LOL
The problem with Vivaldi vertical tabbar is it's design have not evolved much after the 90s. The newer features Vivaldi added into vertical tabbar are kinda buggy, half-baked, & unpractical to use in many instances. What Edge did aren't much, but at least it modernized vertical tabbar in a logical way & make it practical to use in daily basis (thus many vertical tabbar user requesting it in Vivaldi forum).
The CSS mod I hack together is only a work around & it ONLY work fine in most situation, but that's all I can do with the limitation of CSS. LSS my CSS mod is mostly just quirky hacks, it can't realized the full potential of vertical tabbar. If we want a really nice & comfortable feeling vertical tabbar (better than Edge), IMHO only V team can make it a reality IF they wanted to do that, that is... whistle
@essenceblue Using the Quick Commands dialog (F2) is a decent workaround to switch to any tab in any window.
With 5,496 feature requests, and a small team, those needed by few users or difficult to implement may have to wait for a long time. Wherever you see that a feature is tagged as In Progress, it may get done this year rather than next.
TST is the only reason I still use Firefox as well.
I love how Firefox lets me customize the placement of controls in the window as well. I place the TST icon for hiding the TST interface directly above the bar.
Allowing the user to easily toggle tab visibility, especially when in a vertical orientation, is much needed.
@Pesala Ah, nice, tab-cycler as a list goes a long way.
Even so I still wish for something like the win+tab-task-switcher in windows, but better, by using the order- and grouping-information from tab-stacks too.
Edit: On that note, the tab-switcher should be positioned relative to the tab-bar, so that previews are near the actual tab/tab-strip. Almost a map showing location of all tabs.
For stacks A, B and C in top-position:
A1 B1 C1
A2 B2 C2
B1 B2 B3
And so on...
@guigirl said in Allow switching position of columns in Two-Level Tab Stacks:
the sounds of scrollbars
Pssssssssssssst: Got a quick CSS up your sleeves for TST?
Asking for a friend.
Bis repetita placent, you're unbelievable,.
@pesala it is already the default behaviour, in Settings, Bookmarks, to disable:
Open Bookmarks in New Tab
Disabling this option causes only opening bookmarks in the current tab, no matter if it is start page or some website. This way you can open a bookmark in the current tab with the site already open, so you replace her. But the point of this topic is to replace only start pages that are not used.
The subject of this feature request concerns the use of empty start pages for open page by double-clicking (rather not the middle click used to open pages in the background), regardless of whether it is a bookmark, history entry, link from notes, etc.
It is only for discussion which start pages the browser should use, if there are more than one already open, and in what order (e.g. from left to right, only the most right etc), these can also be as the options.
I completely agree, the tab width is so big that horizontal scrolling in more of a hassle to use compared to FF... I hope this can be implemented, similar to the min width and as it used to be in tab-size.js from the Vivaldi Hooks.
I'm not sure why the min width was seemingly implemented into the main program but the other sliders weren't...
For now I guess I'll edit the bundle.js everytime, as described here.
