    tanx . it were difficult to manage windows when there were so many tabs .
    opera is only browser that can hold a huge amount of tabs

  • bingo007

    why would anybody want to disable it?

      because with that jumplist You can’t simply minimalize and restore Opera. even if there is one tab opened

    why not ? if you use just 8 – 9 tabs , it’s very nice and use full … but ifyou usually open 100 – 200 tabs in 8 – 9 windows , you will berfer using areo to manage windows not tabs .

    opera has a mouse over tab preview and visual tabs . very use ful tools to manage tabs .

    IE and firefox usually crashes when I opean more than 20 tabs .
    and chrome takes a huge amount of memory . really huge . safari has a very bad tab managing UI , like FF . but if you use a huge amount of add-ones in FF , it will has a better tab managing UI …

    and IE … let’s don’t talk about it

    Thank you very much. Although it took me some time to find this site, I fortunately found it. Useful USEFUL tip. “You can’t simply minimalize and restore Opera” – that’s what annoyed me.
