Adding my +1 to this –
As like @tikotzky, I use tabs primarily for keeping resources that need to always be available (e.g. mail, music, communication) open and out of the way of “active work”. Any time I open a new window, all presently-pinned tabs duplicate to the new window as well.
Personally, I use different windows to keep different work contexts categorically separated, and do not need each of these items on each of my windows. In my usage, I typically have one such “root window” that has all of my mission-critical pinned tabs on it.
Chrome’s current behavior is to respect the relationship between the origin window of a given pinned tab and that tab:
- If a new window is opened, it doesn’t carry the pinned tabs with it.
- If a window with pinned tabs is closed, subsequent new-window-opens also do not duplicate those pinned tabs – it instead takes a re-launch of chrome to regain this window with the pinned tabs.
It would be nice to see something similar as a configurable property of Brave’s tab-handling.
