@shifte Hmmmm, not nice of you to do that.

I don't use this, so I'll turn it off.
@shifte I did not follow your link, so i have not seen whatever is there. All i know is that when deciding to follow a link, or not, posted from anyone i do not know, to a site i do not know, i always first scan it. Once i saw the result, i chose not to go there. It might be a false-positive, but i'm not interested in the gamble.

As someone who is very new to Vivaldi, I think I was in the habit of using the words "tab" and working with "tabs" which are nothing but and extremely shortsighted design artifact of older browsers. I read the comments on this issue here, and it just hit me that.
I should free myself from thinking in terms of tabs
The "Window" panel of Vivaldi attempts to solve that problem in a completely new way that feels like its going in the right direction. This is when I realized why Vivaldi has made an option to not show the tab bar at all. I have now switched to only using the panel and I'm no longer going back to using the tab bar (ever).
Thanks Vivaldi Devs!
@aniketd Huh? Tabs are still tabs, in V.

@guigirl Right, they are, I don't deny that. But I'm happy thinking they aren't needed anymore, because you have a tree in the window panel anyway? At least that makes sense to me and I'm using it that way. Perhaps I'm wrong and you can correct me. I'm only thinking as someone who feels flat-tabs aren't overwhelmingly useful when you have a tree-like structure.
@aniketd In no way do i wish to intimate criticism about a user accessing & managing their tabs via the Window Panel, or the Tab-bar/column, or even via tab-handling extensions. My intention simply was to point out that irrespective of a user's deployed management mode, they are still tabs, & they are still called tabs.
Deciding not to call them that, or not thinking of them that way, does not stop them being tabs all the same. I might like to pretend that i am drinking my coffee out of a penguin, but most people who looked on would agree, "ah, she's drinking from her coffee mug again".
Your earlier statement
"tabs" which are nothing but and extremely shortsighted design artifact of older browsers
was nothing short of astounding.
Your later statement that
they aren't needed anymore
is not very much less astonishing. Unless you propose to use your browser in such a way that its UI comprises only x windows with only one site opened per x, then you ARE using tabs.

@guigirl Agreed Very well put!
After introducing Accordion Tabs, still I think that Tree-style tabs are needed even more!
Watching you devs, so much effort to workaround/implement tabs overload, but look, the idea exists... Stop struggling and give Tree-style Tabs!
@polisson TST rulz!

Man these accordion tabs look horrible with vertical tabs. Why not just do tree-style tabs? I mean come on, the solution is right there!
