[Closed] New Preference: Hover switches tab after __ seconds


Enabled by default, it would be located below “Show tab previews on hover”:

[ o]Show tab previews on hover
	[ o]Hover switches tab after _2_ seconds

Use case:

  1. Watch a new user (me)
  2. Watch as I effortlessly preview a page by hovering on its tab
  3. Note my eyes drifting downward onto the page
  4. Notice that I’m now reading the page
  5. Watch closely as I move the pointer down to click something
  6. Listen for expletives as the browser bounces me back to the previous tab.


I like the idea thought it should not be enabled by default.
