Add a feature like Opera’s Workspaces. These are like virtual desktops but for your browser. You create a “workspace” and can open tabs in it, then you can create a different workspace and create another set of tabs in it and can switch back and forth between the workspaces. New tabs are automatically added to the active workspace.
I regularly have 50+ tabs open when browsing. An (optional) Workspace feature would allow you to group the tabs into logical groupings based on task/function. Many times I have tabs open that are not relevant to what I am doing at the moment. I might not return to them for days or weeks but I keep them there because I do intend (hope) to return to them. Meanwhile they are cluttering up my browser.
Ideally this would probably be combined with a feature where those tabs in non-active workspaces are sleeping or otherwise using reduced resources
If you’re referring to the side bar, that’s just a UI detail. They could still implement workspaces without using up screen real estate, or at least, offer a few different options. For example, they could put it in a bottom status bar or in a menu
I vote in favor of having “workspaces” like those in Opera web browser. Moreover, I want to emphasize the distinction among workspaces and tab grouping. If you look at the screenshot posted by @rajciok , at the left pane you will see the briefcase, star and other icons that represents workspaces. Each of these workspaces is capable to hold virtually unlimited tabs. I use to dedicate one workspace for personal browsing and two or more for work-related.
Now, tab grouping (Add tab to new group) is a feature already implemented in Brave; however, it’s not enough for my purposes. It’s easier and more quickly to click to a workspace and access the tabs related to a defined purpose (personal, for example).
I believe it would make Brave to gain a strategic position if you implement Opera-style workspaces combined with tab grouping. I’d love this!
This is the reason I didn’t use Brave for so long.
I just started using it to try it out, but the grouping feature is just not comparable with the workspaces. I remember the first browser with workspaces I used was Firefox at least 10years ago (as an extension) and since then I can’t imagine using a browser without this function.
I really hope brave will add something similar soon.
YES PLEASE. Recently jumped from Opera to Brave myself, and for the most part, I love it. However, there are a few Opera features I’d really love to have here and Workspaces is probably the biggest one for me. It enables so much more choice in tab management, especially if you like to keep your tabs separated by general theme/topic. I use the Reading List for this (and it’s working pretty well) but it also does mean that there are times where that list gets extremely long. Having Workspaces for stuff I plan to get to within the day would be really nice!
