It’s working for me too. But, the vertical tabs are now not using the same color as the theme applied in the browser. If I use the all black theme, for example, the vertical bar is greyed out. For you too?
I just checked it out and idk if this really is an issue. The background color of verticals tabs pallete is grey no matter what theme I choose. Maybe it’s the default color and can’t be changed for now. The tabs themselves do change the color when the theme changes.
It is a WIP, I don’t know why you have vertical tabs in your Stable builds… that’s a big thing Brave did, because as you can see, you get changes, and you get them so late.
Moving Tabs to be enabled or disabled in runtime was pushed in Oct 28, 2022. almost 3 months ago.
About the colors, they are polishing the tabs, and that’s the problem, you won’t get these changes until much later
You can see the screenshot and all the changes done and comments by devs so you get an idea how long it will take until this PR gets merged.
Well, I don’t know how changes will affect theme, but eventually Brave will add it, everything they are doing is mostly about the behavior, right now Vertical Tabs are in the spot where they seem to work fine with Brave, no weird bookmarks bar flashing, no vertical tabs in fullscreen videos, not that weird blank space on the bottom of the vertical tabs and things like that, which is more important than how it looks.
Not sure if this is happening to anyone else - I’ve noticed in this latest build when I have vertical tabs enabled and I try to pull a tab out into its own window Brave crashes. This doesn’t happen when I have vertical tabs disabled.
@xoldyckk is right. Enabling it in the UI has only been required after the update. Before, it was automatically enabled in the UI (which makes more sense in my opinion since I was also confused that my vertical tabs disappeared after the update and having to reenable them in the UI the way it was described is not obvious after the vertical tabs disappear). Brave should at least enable the vertical tabs in the UI by default when someone enables the flag to avoid this surprise after the update.
