[FR] Disable close button on tabs
like classic opera feature [img]http://i.hizliresim.com/BZ2akj.png[/img] this is actually one of the reasons i can't get used to chrome and chropera
But I have to say that Opium's behaviour is not bad: close buttons disappear from all but current tab when you start to run out of space on the tab bar.
Also an idea to make it better usable on touch screens:
If there are many tabs it can get tough to select a tab without closing it (or a neighboring one) accidentally.
To alleviate this there could be a drag & drop gesture: As soon as a tab is dragged, a medium sized trash can appears near it (in screen center direction). Dropping the tab in the trash can closes it -> close button could be disabled without the need of a middle mouse button/keyboard
I disagree. The issue for me is not that I see the button, but that I click it by accident.
Yeah, but when there's plenty of space on the tab bar, the risk of clicking on the close button accidentally is a bit smaller than normally. That's why I wrote it's not bad.
I agree with this feature, but it should come together with the common MDI button to close the currently active tab, as in O12.
You don't need to explain it to me. I'm also a fan of no close buttons at all. I just wanted to say something about OP's comment:
this is actually one of the reasons i can't get used to chrome and chropera
(…) but, also there is rarely plenty of space on the tab bar to begin with
Yes, and for me that's the reason why I rarely see the close buttons in Opium (!)
