If you're someone who likes to have multiple tabs open at once while browsing on your computer, you may find that keeping them all organized can become quite a hassle. That's where Opera Neon's tab grouping feature comes in handy. In this article, we will walk you through the process of using Opera Neon to group your tabs for a smoother, more efficient browsing experience.

Understanding Opera Neon's Interface

Before diving into tab grouping, let's first take a moment to understand the different components of the Opera Neon interface:

The Visual Tab Bar

At the top of the browser window, you'll find the visual tab bar, which displays all of your open tabs as individual bubbles. This is where you'll create and manage your tab groups.

The visual tab bar is not only functional, but also visually appealing. Each tab bubble is designed to be a miniature representation of the website it represents, with a small thumbnail image and the website's title displayed prominently. This makes it easy to quickly identify which tab is which, even if you have a lot of tabs open at once.

In addition to its visual appeal, the tab bar is also highly customizable. You can rearrange the order of your tabs simply by dragging and dropping them into a new position. You can also pin tabs to keep them in a fixed position, and you can close tabs by clicking on the small "x" icon located in the top right corner of each tab bubble.

The Player Panel

Located on the right-hand side of the browser window, the player panel displays any media that is currently playing in one of your tabs. For example, a YouTube video or a Spotify playlist.

The player panel is a convenient feature that allows you to easily control your media playback without having to switch between tabs. You can pause, play, skip, and adjust the volume of your media directly from the panel, without having to navigate to the tab that is playing the media.

In addition to its playback controls, the player panel also displays information about the media that is currently playing, such as the title, artist, and album name. This makes it easy to keep track of what you're listening to or watching, even if you have multiple tabs open.

The Omnibox

The omnibox is Opera Neon's URL bar that doubles as a search bar. You can use it to type in URLs or search terms, as well as to perform web searches.

The omnibox is a powerful tool that allows you to quickly navigate to websites or search for information without having to open a new tab. As you type in the omnibox, Opera Neon will automatically suggest websites and search terms based on your input, making it easy to find what you're looking for.

In addition to its search and navigation capabilities, the omnibox also supports a number of useful shortcuts. For example, you can type "g" followed by a search term to perform a Google search, or "w" followed by a search term to perform a Wikipedia search. These shortcuts can save you time and make your browsing experience more efficient.

Setting Up Your Workspace in Opera Neon

Before getting started with tab grouping, you may want to customize your workspace according to your preferences:

Customizing the Background

To customize the background of your Opera Neon workspace, click on the three-dot icon located at the top right corner of the browser window and select "Settings." From here, you can choose a pre-designed background or upload your own image.

Adding and Removing Shortcuts

You can add shortcuts to frequently visited websites by selecting the "+" icon in Opera Neon's visual tab bar. To remove shortcuts, simply right-click over the bubble and select "Remove shortcut."

Managing Bookmarks

Creating and managing bookmarks in Opera Neon is easy. You can add a new one by clicking the heart icon located on the top right corner of the browser window, or by simply dragging a tab onto the bookmarks bar. To organize your bookmarks, simply click and drag them around as desired.

Creating Tab Groups in Opera Neon

Now, onto the main event – creating tab groups in Opera Neon! Here's how to do it:

Selecting Multiple Tabs

To select multiple tabs at once, simply hold down the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard while clicking on each tab you want to include in the group.

Creating a New Tab Group

Once you've selected the tabs you want to group, right-click over one of them and select "Add tab to group." This will create a new tab group with all of the selected tabs included.

Naming and Customizing Tab Groups

To give your tab group a name, you can simply click on the name bar at the top of the group and type in your desired name. You can also customize the color of the tab bar by clicking on the circle located to the right of the group name.

Navigating and Managing Tab Groups

Now that you've created your tab groups, it's time to learn how to navigate and manage them:

Switching Between Tab Groups

To switch between tab groups, simply click on the name bar of the group you want to access in the visual tab bar. Alternatively, you can use the "Ctrl + [" (left bracket) and "Ctrl + ]" (right bracket) keyboard shortcuts to cycle through your tab groups.

Adding and Removing Tabs from Groups

To add a tab to an existing group, simply drag and drop it onto the group's double bubble in the visual tab bar. To remove a tab from a group, drag and drop it out of the group's bubble and onto the visual tab bar.

Rearranging Tabs Within Groups

Within a group, you can rearrange tabs by dragging and dropping them into different positions within the group's bubble. This allows you to organize your tabs in a way that makes sense to you.


As you can see, Opera Neon's tab grouping feature is a simple but effective way to keep your browsing experience organized and efficient. With just a few clicks, you can create, customize, and manage tab groups to suit your personal preferences and browsing habits. So why not give it a try?
