I am currently test-driving Opera 10 and the first thing that irks me is that I don't seem to be able to make it start without any open tabs. I also don't want speed dial. Just Opera without any tabs open.

Is this even possible in version 10?

  • Thanks for the close vote! This is my first one and I'll treasure it. – innaM Sep 4 '09 at 9:30

Tools > Preferences > Advanced > Tabs > Addition Tab Options - check Allow Window with no tabs.

Then, in the General tab of the Preferences, you will see Start Opera without Open Tabs as an option in the startup field. Select that and Opera will start without open tabs.

  • Wow. What a usability nightmare! But very good advice, Dan. – innaM Sep 2 '09 at 5:12

    I guessing they think that Opera without tabs would be more of a usability nightmare for ordinary users. – Ant Sep 3 '09 at 15:06
