Please add "close other tabs" to the context menu

Alexander Uslontsev 8 years ago updated by Joel Thornton 8 years ago 2

Otherwise I have to go back to default tabs for doing this (and this is a hard mental switch).


If clicked on a branch - it would close everything ABOVE and OTHER branches, but keep children open

Considering the best way to support this. I don't think this is an action that many people would use often, and I also wonder whether we'd also want a "hibernate other" option ... perhaps in addition one would like "close others" vs. "close other branches" and "hibernate others" vs. "hibernate other branches".

Currently considering adding these actions after I add the ability for users to toggle/reorder which items appear in their context menu, and having them be non visible in the context menu by default.

I would put the "hibernate other tabs" menu option in "flat open tabs view" (once it gets implemented) only so the menu doesn't get cluttered.

As a halfway solution, you can shift-click to select the range of pages you want to close in the sidebar, then ctrl-click the page(s) you want to keep open to remove them from the selection, and finally right click one of the selected rows and do "close tab".

I know it's not as handy as a dedicated "close others" action, but it may be more convenient than switching back to Chrome's horizontal tabbar.
