10 tab management tricks in Vivaldi picked by our community

  • #1 was my main reason for switching over to Vivaldi and test it and remain using it - years ago! 🙂

    For me, this is a must-have feature on modern widescreen displays. But there are many other other features besides tab management (especially #4-8) like powerful shortcuts for a lot of commands, web panels (yeah, floating now!), powerful history ... just to name a few.

    There is only one thing I'm still sad about: Sync still missing in stable version!

  • when i read this list of abilities i get happy like a kid, 'cause it's really seldom when one programs has so many cool and useful features build-in. especially for usage simultaneous activity in social networks, youtube, some article sites etc.
    i'd only wish smb could give me a hint how to get off from Opera - the only reason i use it is quite fast free vpn. yeap, sometimes governments decide they are over-smart to control what you should or shouldn't know.

  • @neltherion: I've just tried this, and it hasn't improved things 😞

    For me performance in moving tabs, etc., has been awful - still is.

  • For those trying to add a tab to an existing tab stack using selections here's how (OSX instructions, sorry) -

    first cmd-click on the tab stack to select (make sure you don't have anything selected first)

    then cmd-click on each tab you'd like to add to the stack

    then right-click (two-finger press on trackpad for OSX as right-click doesn't work there) on a tab (might only be the stack) to bring up the contextual menu; one option will be "New Tab Stack by Selection…" Click that. It'd be better renamed to "Add loose tabs to stack" in my opinion, as that's the effect.

    (I'm finding moving tabs about so slow and erratic as to not be usable; selections make more sense. Also, I'm getting the impression drag tab onto another tab has gone — ?)

    drag tab onto another tab has gone

    FUD [for Linux & Win]. Another user also complained about this recently, but it's just wrong. Various others of us have rebutted the claim, albeit only testing in Linux & Windows [7 & 10]... maybe Mac does have a problem?

  • I'm dying for "Open [link] in New Tile" and/or "Tile Stacked Tabs by Default" options!! Maybe I missed them somewhere?

  • #4 and #7 lacks tree style tab for vertical tab layout, which properly configured would be still grouping feature for those 0,1% user using tab stacking. BTW, is only my feeling that "stack" defines something vertical and perfectly fits to?

  • With Easygestures, built in gestures aren't a big deal. But I hide the UI, using the mouse sidebutton/scroll or keyboard F2 to navigate tabs.

    I prefer NO UI, I use mousegestures or keyboard shortcuts for most stuff... if it isn't built in, then I must write scripts to do the job. Close tabs with an 'L' and re-open them with 'reverse L' - great.

    Love the UI toggle - just a mousy squiggle or Ctrl+F11 to pull it back up - superb.

    The only 'missing' feature here is being able to save web pages as 'app' shortcuts... but hiding the UI is just about the same thing anyway.

  • What sort of font smoothing is used while creating screenshots in #4, #5 and %6?

  • They're all great and really useful. The only tab management feature that makes me consider using another browser is Collection feature in Microsoft Edge. Unfortunately none of Vivaldi features work like that. The closest thing in Vivaldi to that is Session which is far behind Collections.

  • You know what would make tab management even easier?
    Multiple tab rows!

  • je trouve qu'il manque une fonction dans les onglets, celle d'avoir la possibilité d'ouvrir un onglet supplémentaire dans le dernier onglet ouvert, plutot que d'ouvrir un onglet supplémentaire. fonction qui excite sur firefox que je quitte pour sa trop grande consommation de mémoire Vive Vivaldi

    @sudvienne Welcome to the Community. Please use English in this forum, or provide a translation.

    I find that there is a missing function in the tabs, that of having the ability to open an additional tab in the last open tab, rather than opening an additional tab. function that exists in Firefox which I left for its excessive consumption of memory
