New Opera 9.5 Build Receives An Advanced Tabs Activation FeatureToday’s Opera build introduced a well known feature, which can already be found on: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and probably few others, not so well known web browsers. This new feature allows Opera users to control tabs behavior when closing them. If you will open the following settings window: Preferences > Advanced > Tabs
It’s easy to notice the following options to choose from:

Activate the last active (default)
Activate the tab to the right
Active the first tab opened from closing tab
