Opening link in new tab



  • It would be better when we opened a link into new tab, that the tab would open right next to it and not at the end of tabs.



  • +1 and also have the option to not go to the newest tab. Like "open in background tab"

    Vivaldi browser really nice, glad you guys made it, hope to soon use it as default.
    Thank you.

    If you middle mouse click on a link, at least for me, it gets the behaviour you desire in this regard. :)

    Totally agree. Open tab in the background is a must, almost every browser have this behavior by default.

    Classic Opera's default has always been to focus the new tab - which New Opera doesn't even let you do under any circumstances. - but there was an "open in background tab" option in context menu of Classic Opera - which is not fully developed at this point. Until we get that back, Middle-click or Ctrl+click will do it, and in the not-too-distant future, I'm sure we will at least have the "open in background tab" context menu option, as well as the ability to focus new tab.

    Yes, I would definitely prefer the option to have a new tab open next to the currently active tab. Of course others may prefer new tabs to open at end of Tab Bar, which is why it needs to be a user-selectable option (as it was in Opera 12.x and earlier).

    @jasperw:
    If that is your main point, it might be be good to edit your thread title (Opening link in new tab) to something like: Open new tab next to active

    Thank you, Estarlio that worked nicely. :) The tab still opens at the end but the browser does not go there automatically.

    Yep, for example me. I hate tabs opening in the middle of the tab bar and I appreciate that Vivaldi opens them at the end. But the ideal thing is to have both options to please everyone, of course :)

    For me, the perfect option would be to put the new tab next to active if generated by a link in the active tab, and to put it at the end if generated by the "new tab" icon on the tab bar. We will be offered more tab options soon, I'm confident.

    • 1 to this.


  • I agree with Ayespy. I believe we will be offered more options soon. I would like to see us have the number of choices that Opera offered us up to version 12.

    Obviously this should be the correct and the by default behavior , then any options to change it, to please the people used with the second tier browsers, should be present too.

    ATM this an the paste and go are the UI features I'm missing most on vivaldi.

    Paste & go works if you have the focus in the address bar and use Ctrl+Shift+V.

    I can definitely see the rationale for this as probably the best default configuration (agreeing with The_Solutor).

    Seems like I had a browser that worked this way years ago and liked it (can't recall if it was Avant, K-Meleon, Firefox, Maxthon, an older Opera version, Safari, or ???), but now I'm really accustomed to Opera 12.x with new tab next to active for both. What current browsers for Windows function as Ayespy described?

    Internet Explorer

    I know, but paste and go is mostly useful doing one handed mouse navigation.

    If I have the hands over the keyboard I can do just ctrl+v -> enter. They are still three buttons to push.

    BTW the shortcut combination can be useful to be associated to a mouse button until the proper contextual menu will come.

    I don't know if you noticed it but the non contextual one is already there, although its usage, if any, is limited

    :pinch: :lol: You're right! …And now that you mention it, I think IE is the browser I was thinking of but couldn't recall. Funny that I didn't even think of IE when I was trying to remember. :P (I even did a quick scan of Wikipedia's List of web browsers when I was drafting my post, and completely overlooked IE.)

    For many years now I completely avoid IE except when some occasional site won't work without it or I'm "fixing" IE for a friend or family member, so I haven't been browsing with it enough to recall that behavior. …So I guess that would be one of the few IE design features I actually appreciate.

    So just to clarify, "and liked it" above means the tab behavior, not the browser.

    I find IE to be better than Chrome to be honest. It may have its quirks but at least their semi-multi-process design works.

    IE is also the only browser, from the big ones, that comes with DoNotTrack on by default and asks you about sending traffic to Microsoft, for phishing check for example, before first use.

    I never use it too but it's a regular browser.
