[Suggestion] Ability to Name Tab Stacks



  • It would be awesome to be able to name tab stacks. Eg. We stack three pages: apples, oranges and pears. Then we call the stack 'fruit.' We stack two more pages: oil, natural gas. Then name it 'energy.' The name is what shows up on the tab stack not the constituent page. Viewing a tab stack this way by it's name could be more efficient than according to each individual item in the stack.



  • This would be useful. I have a javascript on my Opera 12.17 tab context menu that can rename individual tabs, but renaming a tab-stack would be better. Here's the code if you know how to get it working in Vivaldi.

    Item, "Rename Tab"="Go to page, "javascript:(function(){ var titles=document.getElementsByTagName('title'); var exists = titles.length > 0; if (exists) { var title = titles[0]; } var response = prompt('New tab name:', exists ? title.firstChild.nodeValue : ''); if (response) { if (exists) { title.firstChild.nodeValue = response; } else { var heads = document.getElementsByTagName('head'); if (heads.length==0) { document.getElementsByTagName('html')[0].appendChild(document.createElement('head')); } var title = document.createElement('title'); title.appendChild( document.createTextNode(response) ); document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild( title ); } }})()",,,"Compose Mail""

    Good idea !

    To take it one step further, we already can construct folders in our bookmarks tree, which themselves are allowed to have names.

    IF we were allowed to right-click on a folder and choose 'Open into a Stack', let it be that the stack would take on the folder's name.

    Yes ?

  • Thanks Pesala, but sadly my eyes are glossing over when I try to think of implementing such a fix in V; I don't have the smarts to do it. I think I'll hope the devs take a liking to this naming idea.

    Yep. That would be great. I'd like to see that.



  • This is a great idea! I'd love to have it.

    I've suggested that some time ago too. https://vivaldi.net/en-US/forum/all/2903-bookmarking-open-tabs-suggestions

    Yes, I see the connection.

    The 2 threads began differently, but overlapped.

    All good ideas - both threads.
