Recently closed tabs and tab grouping [similar to Tabs Outliner]


#1

A critical feature for me is a more intuitive management feature. Current implementation is similar to functionality seen in Vivaldi (which is an improvement over most other browsers), but it would be worth looking at the Tabs Outliner extension for Chrome to see how a more robust system could be implemented.

Tabs Outliner is one of the most useful and highest-rated extensions in the Chrome Web Store for tab management, even though the extension is prone to frequent crashing and is no longer maintained since Jan 2016. There is an active community for the extension here where the Ukrainian developer occasionally responds to user feedback, but doesn’t have the motivation to move the project forward.

When used in conjunction with the Great Suspender, the ability to manage session memory and tab grouping makes browsing the internet much more intuitive and removes the need to constantly be manually cleaning tab history to avoid clutter and system slow downs.

At the very least, I would be satisfied with the ability to sort history by when a tab was closed, rather than opened. This would be closer to Noguchi filing system methods where the “last touched” information carries more weight. I don’t understand why all browsers lack the ability to sort by “time closed” or maybe even “total time left opened”.

Tab grouping is tracker here https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/2334

It makes more sense to log history when you visit rather when you closed it. If the tab is backgrounded and closed then you would not have ideally visited the site at that instance when it was closed (Even thought you closed the tab without even making it the active tab)

One thing I find strange @planetceres is that someone thinks it’s better to spend money to renew the certs to COMODO RSA Domain Validation Secure Server CA - Valid from 04/06/2017 to 05/06/2018.

They could have easily just implemented Let’s Encrypt Authority X3, right? So what was the point of even renewing it, rather dubious.

(There was bit below here which I removed if anyone was wondering)

@Numpty Your response is a little off topic. Request you to kindly keep the responses in line with the original topic of discussion.
