[Suggestion] Place browser's "close tab-button" to the right of the screen (

As a righthanded user it would be nice to have the option to place the button which closes tabs placed to the right of the screen, as the current placement is quite uncomfortable to reach.

hmmm... but I am ambidextrous, so it's ok for me. And there are lots of left-handed people around. So this should be implemented only as an option.

An option is (like I wrote above) exactly what I hope for. :)

@Tobbe Oh, yeah, sorry, I've missed that. Just have to agree and support you now )

how about swapping close and bookmark and wait a minute... oh darn I want all buttons in the center... and another thing, I am right-handed but have long fingers... so the easy part to reach is actually across the middle to the left, that is +, search, bookmark, close and the URL textfield... oh and it depends on what I want to do... most of the time I do not close tabs and I do not bookmark a lot so those two could be far right... if I close some that is most of the time a complete history of tabs I opened so tab-view is a better place... I am not sure what I really want... or need... depends highly on the case though

Maybe we should make this request even wider. Would be great to have a general option in setting to switch between right- and left-handed modes for ui. That would be really unlike.

That would be nice!

This is actually a really great idea! Kudos mate! :) Hopefully this is easy to implement like e.g. as a mirror UI -option.

Same things "switch on" on my mind, can you convert you answer to new more general topic?

@hyper_sonic Ok, no problem.

@hyper_sonicThat's it.
