Feature request:Improved Tablist for rmb+wheel



  • If you are pre-opium Opera user you should be familiar with RMB+scroll tab list feature. I am not aware of any other browser that supports it natively and no extension that works comparably. My goal is to improve this great tool so much that it could[b] replace tab bar[/b] completely. Also make it possible to use the browser with mouse only, as much and as efficient as possible. Basic version: [attachment=1408]tablist1.jpg[/attachment] Very similar tablist to original one(Opera), only some differences. [attachment=1409]tablist1a.jpg[/attachment] First major change is address bar on title bar instead of tabs.This change allows to [b]save more[/b] vertical [b]space[/b] for web pages when compared to other methods of displaying tabs. Next important change is that now you should be able to [b]select tab[/b], that you want to switch to, [b]with a mouse[/b]. It gets more important if you use many tabs because rotating the wheel becomes inefficient. There is also special separated area for clicking that shows context menu for a given tab. I think that there should be no need to left click on a [b]tab[/b] to [b]switch[/b] to it, hovering [b]cursor over and releasing RMB[/b] should be enough. Further Improvements. [attachment=1410]tablist2a.jpg[/attachment] Since there is no title bar there is a need to somehow [b]display[/b] whole [b]page title[/b]. I am proposing two solutions(see the picture), first is probably much easier to implement , that's why I included it as a compromise. Tab stacks should also be supported since there is no tab bar. If you use tab stacks to manage many tabs, option to collapse stacks is also desirable when the list gets overcrowded. I wouldn't want to have coloured tabs implemented here because it limits options of [b]indicating tab status[/b]. There could be an option to[b] 'jump' between tab stacks with a MMB[/b] when on the tab list.
