I open a link in a new tab and the previous tab gets immediately hibernated.
Can anybody explain the logic behind this? Let's say I have 10 tabs open. I clicked on a link in the 10th tab, the 11th tab opened and the 10th tab got immediately hibernated. Out of all the other tabs, exactly the 10th is hibernated, the one that I was just in. Can I change this behaviour?

@TbGbe are you a bot? your link does not answer my question even remotely
Tabs do not get hibernated automatically.
I clicked on a link in the 10th tab, the 11th tab opened and the 10th tab got immediately hibernated.
I can not reproduce such behavior. I checked it with Vivaldi 2.11.1811.33 x64 on Windows 10 x64.
Do you have any extension installed? Check page vivaldi://system → section extensions.
Oder set special flags in page vivaldi://flags?
@Gwen-Dragon so you're saying I'm imagining things? they do get hibernated and I don't mind that they do. The question is how to change the overall behaviour? Why it's the recent tab that gets hibernated, not the oldest one? It's all good with //system and //flags.

No, i never would do such. I wanted to tell that I can not reproduce it and tabs do not get hibernated by default in Vivaldi.
Only backround tabs (the ones who are not selected) can be sent to hibernation by context menu.
@pokemn As i do not know how you achived such hibernation, i could not tell you how to change this.
May be one of your extensions cause this.
You can type
vivaldi://discards/into the address bar.
This page may give you more information as to why a tab may have been discarded (hibernated).
There are different things that can prevent tabs from being discarded, but normally tabs are not discarded unless they really need to.
Maybe you have a system that is low on memory so the browser pre-emptively gets rid of tabs it thinks can be removed. If you have a lot of extensions installed and programs running this can use up memory.
@LonM thank you for vivaldi://discards/
I get that tabs are discarded for a reason. I just don't get why the recent tab, not the oldest.
