[Feature sugestion] Full color tabs



  • Hi Recently i came up with an idea, but i wasn't sure if it will work in practice. So i made a visual test of that idea, and i want to know what do you think about it. I always liked colored tabs feature in vivaldi, but it had only visual value. "Full color" tabs would have not only optical but also practical value. Pros: -"quicker find tab that you're looking for". Favicon are small and not that easy to spot with a glimpse. Now you'll have not only favicon but also big rectangle color theme of site. -"easy to spot active tab". In dark theme with color active tab some dark theme sites are difficult to spot among the rest of grey tabs. (example on picture 3) - "3d like effect" shadow around active tab gives you 3d illusion which looks far more interesting yet still simple. Cons -"sometimes hard to spot active tab" In situation when all your open tabs are dark it might be difficult to spot active tab which is indicated by the shadow. In theory implementation of this feature would not be that complicated (all tabs would have semitransparent layer on top except active, active tab would have layer on both sides) in reality i don't know, I'm not into chromium at all. Let me know below what you think about it.

    I'm afraid You're a bit too late :) , please continue there, if you mind.



  • Interesting thread, and as I can see biggest problem/discussion is about indication/emphasization of active tab. Thanks for link, I'll continue there :) It's a shame that last post is from over a year ago and nothing happened since then..



  • The other thread was very old. But, at the time the devs didn't have a flexible theming engne.

    Now something to address our request should be closer.

    Anyway given you add your messages in the other thread I'm going to close this one, to avoid confusion.
