Tab Folders/Stacks Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
It would be great to have the ability to create stacks or folders in the tab sidebar.

In my opinion a really useful feature when you have different "topics" and don't want to use workspaces.
Yes indeed! Collapsible hierarchical tabs, please!

If we use the outline model, that helps us group and classify our tabs while browsing.
Yeah :) It would be great if you can just drag a tab on another and the will make a list wich you can open or close...
Another interesting option might be the ability to define collapsable groups by domain, i.e. if I have multiple pages option, they could appear as a hierarchical group.

...but this would run counter to the tab showing the user's navigation history, but this is already undermined by the user's ability to manually arrange tabs.
The idea sounds great, wonder if this will make it into OmniWeb.

I can't see how this might be implemented without making the UI complex and messy. Anyone care to share a mockup or description of how they'd want to see it presented?

I usually use new windows for 'topics' and tabs for pages on those topics (eg right now I have a window full of tabs browsing the Omni forums for Spaces support in OW, and another window full of tabs about the new iPhone SDK). I also have a 'higher level' arrangement (types of topics?) which I arrange using Spaces; all my general interest windows in one space, all my shopping / finance windows in another, all my software development windows in another.

And then, of course, there's workspaces (I used to use these for my 'higher-level' organisation, now replaced by Spaces).

So I'm struggling to see what this feature would add to OW that isn't already covered by tabs, windows, workspaces and Spaces. Anyone care to give me an example of how they might use it if it were implemented?
