Tab closing behaviour



  • I believe that the tab closing behavior is rather strange for it switches to the most recent tab used before the one you closed, and I do not like this very much. I do hope that in further updates they add the possibility to go to the next tab on the right or on the left. I would recommend adding as much configuration freedom as possible, as many options as possible is the right way to go for it gives the user the option to change as much as he wants from the browser, and that power is underrated in some browsers. For everything else I believe that you are doing a great job. I also wanted to know if there is going to be a private tab as there was on Opera, that was a very useful tool to use multiple accounts without having to switch windows but only tabs.

    Menu/Tools/Settings/Tabs click the "tab order" radio button.



  • @Titanicoso: You're not alone in your wishes: everything you're requesting/suggesting has been requested/suggested numerous times by others and is undoubtedly known to the developers.

    The good news is that the custom configurability you're interested in is a central goal of the project, and the browser coding is designed with that specifically in mind. :)



  • It's a good thing customization is indeed the target of the project, because many people (me included) think that not going to the previously used tab after closing a tab is the stupidest idea ever devised for a tabbed browser. Great thing that we can have it both ways with a few setup tweaks though. =)

    Yes, I'm delighted Vivaldi will be so customizable, and I'm with you on preferring the last previously used tabs as tabs are closed.

    Even though most of the browsers triumph in market share by targeting the masses, it was tragic (IMO) to see Olde Opera go that route. I still use 12.x constantly and I'm still amazed and delighted by its incredible feature customizability. But more and more sites are incorporating coding advances and features that Olde Opera is not updated for, and slowly tearing it from my grasp. :(

    I don't know about anyone else, but both options behave the way "most recent" should.

    I'm running Vivaldi 1.0.156.2 32-bit, on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

    Wow - I see. Same setup as you, but on Win 8.1 - with tabs vertical on right. When I set it to "tab order," the tabs CYCLE in tab order, but when a tab CLOSES, it acts like "recenlty used." This is a bug. It should act the same as cycling when you close a tab.



  • Frankly I never understood all that discussions about the tab order.

    I would like just to close a tab and go to the main SD page, to be ready to open a new one.
