Please!!! Is there some way to enable the real tabs on browser? I dont't care if i run out of RAM! I can use my own brain if i have 20+ tabs open and my phone is not that smooth anymore!

When Jolla is not willingly want to enable it. Can someone (maybe someone from jolla) to help on this one? I don't even understand... i try to open 3tabs and it not even use RAM much...

we can list all workarounds there :) maybe i am not alone here?

I don't think there's a simple way to enable tabs. My guess is you would have to rewrite the sources: https://github.com/sailfishos/sailfish-browser (the file tab.cpp seems to be for the pseudo tabs the browser is using).

What's wrong with using alternative browsers like Web Pirate?

I use that yes :D. Jollas's browser has better support for HTML5 and easyer to use only one hand.

I know this is not THE Sailfish browser but there is A sailfish browser named web pirate (as said V10lator) with tabs as you want (and little bit faster in addition...) If is annoy you because it's not the browser launched by default what you could do is this: https://together.jolla.com/question/1836/set-default-browser/ with web pirate instead of firefox

I think you should run Android version of Firefox instead. It's smoother than Web Pirate and Sailfish Browser.

I'm using Web Pirate for everything (If haters want to know). :)

I don't like top bars. I love that way how Jolla did make browser, but hate the way how it working...

I did try all Android browsers, all have top bars, but run smooth. Android Firefox with 10x random tabs, use 36% of ram.. Does Sailfish browser use more?
