Vivaldi impressed me with its ability to display web pages that I opened in a neat tabular arrangement. This is called tiled tab browsing. I like this because I can see several web pages at once without having to bother moving tabs to do my activities.
And what makes this feature so cool is … I can still use my web panel to view and use even more web pages at once.
By applying tab browsing, I don’t have to worry about closing web pages that I’m using by accident because everything is arranged neatly in the web tabs that I built before. I do have a habit of closing the web tabs to conserve on RAM, and oftentimes this habit results in the page I’m reading closed.
Let’s check the video of how I use tab browsing below:
You can see how easy and useful tab browsing is when applied (correctly*).
The Hotkeys are:
- For tiling the tabs in a grid view. Cmd F7
- For tiling the tabs horizontally Cmd F8.
- For tiling the tabs verticallyCmd F9.
- For untiling the tabs Cmd F6.
As I’ve mentioned above, we can still make use of the web panels (Cmd + Opt + P) while using the tabs, and it increases our productivity even more.
Why Do I Need It
I have a habit of computing that I always do every day, namely:
Opening Chrome, then opening these following pages:
This web, Google Translate, Google Trends, AdWords, Google AdSense and Gmail. And that’s just the “most use” I mentioned, not to mention a few other pages.
But then I imagined how cool if I actually can see all those pages at once, is not it?

*sometimes the tabs won’t refresh itself when we grouped too many tabs at once.
