Side / Vertical Tabs

We are testing Brave and it is great!

However, a complete hard-stop and total dealbreaker (i.e., why we cannot use Brave) is that it apparently was released without support for side/vertical tabs, which have been available in many leading browsers (e.g., Firefox, Opera) for more than a decade, either natively (preferably) or with extensions.

The reason why millions of users require side/vertical tabs are several, including that they:

 A.  Let users see much better and more clearly what tabs they have open; and
 B.  Use the much larger side space on today's wide aspect ratio monitors, rather than "wasting" the much more precious space at the top of the screen (as top tabs do).

Indeed, many computer experts have said precisely the above. E.g., Steve Gibson on his award-winning podcast, “Security Now”.

So, can Brave please add this mission-critical feature sometime in March 2020? If so, that would be great! Thanks!

Hi pacmac.

Good morning! I hope that all is well with you.

Yes, Vertical Tabs indeed has many fantastic options. :slight_smile:

I have been using the extension for months, on several browsers, and it works great on all of them! And I also frequently have communicated with the extension’s brilliant and also very friendly developer.

The extension indeed works perfectly on all websites, except for certain special pages (e.g., Edge’s, Brave’s or Chrome’s own Settings page, for example). If you find a normal/regular webpage on which the extension does not work, please reply to this post with the precise URL, and I will test it and let the developer know.

Have a great weekend!

Best regards,
Evan

Edge just added this ability for horizontal vs vertical tabs. I am growing to love it since I can see the whole name of a tab and from a security perspective makes it easier to manage.
