Auto-close tab drawer option Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
There should be an option to only show the tab drawer when needed, i.e. when there is more than one tab open.

Every other browser has an option to show the tab bar (in their cases) always or only when needed.

The drawer would be less annoying to me if it slid closed when I am down to 1 tab.

Having it as an option would satisfy those who like to manually close it.
 
+1 :)

FWIW I've requested this before, hopefully the devs see value in such a behaviour.
 
+1

I was thinking about a "close other tab and tab drawer" shortcut in the past, but an automatic "show/hide tab panel" should be great!
 
Yes. Why is this so hard to get? Seems like a natural.
 
I don't like how the drawer close currently, I want the window to take all of the screen when the drawer is hidden. But this behavior is broken most of the time. I am no programmer but I think this is a limitation of drawers, so I guess if OmniWeb goes sidebar (what I really hope) it will be easier to fix.

Anyway you got my vote. But it will make sense only if it behave right. I don't want just an empty space in place of the drawer.

No, what I am asking for is even if nothing changes about how the tab drawer works, I'd like it to nicely slide shut after I close the last tab.

I don't want a drawer with only one tab in it, unless I set my prefs that way (like in FF, Safari, Opera).
 
I agree. This drives me a bit nuts. I could actually cope with the huge thumbnail tabs (which I don't particularly care for) if the drawer would slide shut when there was only one tab open.

Exactly what he said!
 
"I don't want a drawer with only one tab in it, unless I set my prefs that way (like in FF, Safari, Opera)."

I agree, but If I can gain space too I think it's better. That's how safari behave, you gain vertical space. I know I'm talking of two subjects at the same time.

Exactly. Not to minimize your valid request, but there are many threads about the configuration and appearance of tabs.

I wanted to just request the simple closing of the drawer (for now)
