Containers tabs / session tabs

windows

#1

Hi

I’m discovering brave and I already like it ! Great job on this software !

One thing I hope there will be add is contextual container like on firefox.

For examples, I have a lot of tabs for my work then I open a lot of tabs for me during lunch then go back to my work but I don’t want to loose my home tabs.

I know there’s something near this in brave, session tabs so maybe you’ll plan to improve this feature ?

Like sync tabs by context so at home I could reopen all my home tabs ? Same things for android browser.

Anyway thank again for your work !

Hi @hydro! We appreciate your feedback.

We are currently discussing how to better implement Session tabs, as well as additional tab orginization implementations. We have several overlapping issues open in GitHub for this:



This type of feature is not likely to be implemented in the current live release of Brave. It is, however, to be implemented with Brave 1.0.

Additionally, if you’d like a sneak peak at how Brave 1.0 is shaping up, you can download our Developer Build (still early release). It fixes many known issues that are present in the live release, and also adds additional functionality including extension support.

Hi

Thank for you answer and for links !

For me, tabs session / containers must be a complete different instance.

For example, I’m with my work tabs, I click on “Home tabs”, my work tabs disappear and my home tabs appear.

Same things for Android / iOS.

I hope you saw session tabs like this.

I already use dev build and I can’t wait to try session tabs when they’ll be back.

I’m confused about Session tab. Searching everywhere about Brave’s Session Tab, it seems it has been implemented a while ago with numbered Session Tab (community) and I saw the requests to get named Session Tab (github). Confusion comes when I saw that there was an open issue with Session Window (Session windows · Issue #34 · brave/brave-browser · GitHub) and the fact that in both Brave Beta and Brave dev , long click on “+” or right click on “+” does not show any “Session Tab” menu nor in the “current user” menu where the closest we can get is the “Tor window”, “Guest window” or chrome default incognito window.

Now the latest post about multi session is this one and is a request for a feature already implemented a while ago but obviously hidden away somewhere. Can I ask where to find at least the numbered Session Tab if any knows where it has gone?

Hi @lucian.jp,

Session tabs is already implemented on the current Brave release (the one from brave.com/download and the version is 0.24).

The issue that you referring is for the upcoming brave-core, v1.0 that will replace the current Brave. And likely, you’re already use the Beta or Dev version of it. Which is v0.55 or 0.56.

And session tabs/windows not yet implemented for Brave Beta or Brave Dev.

Note:
There’s 2 GitHub repositories for Brave.

  • brave/browser-laptop is for the current Brave (0.24)
  • and brave/brave-browser is for the upcoming brave-core

Hope that can make it clear for you.
Thanks
