I’ve been a champion of Opera’s workspace tab management feature since the beginning. This is the best tab management feature in the market. But even when using Workspace, my tabs can still be erratic, especially when I’m doing some research. I can end up with more than 30 tabs open in a workspace, which can be hard to separate — and that redundancy can become a problem.
Given how much Opera prioritizes tab management, it’s no surprise that the browser has yet another feature to make working with a growing number of tabs even easier.

This feature is called simply tabs, and it lets you view all open workspace tabs in its own tab. These tabs are formatted into an easy-to-read list of clickable links Click on the link you want and it will immediately take you to the open tab.
As I said, this feature works on a workspace-by-workspace basis, so it only displays tabs for the workspace you’re currently viewing.
So, how does this feature work? Show me.

Of course, you’ll want to keep lots of tabs open (otherwise, you wouldn’t need this feature in the first place).
Using the tab feature
If you use Opera across multiple devices and each of them is connected to your Opera account, you’ll notice an additional section on the Tabs tab through the sidebar. That sidebar lists all the tabs you have open on each device. You can click on any of these lists to view the tabs and then open a tab loaded in the browser from your connected device. Only this feature is worth adding a tab icon to your sidebar.

Opera has many simple tricks up its sleeve. If you’re a master of tabs or want to be one, I recommend adding this icon to your sidebar, so you can more easily locate the tab you want, and even access open tabs from Opera on your connected devices.
