I think the personalization is very important too, and this feature could be great.

Edit: Would NOT be Permanent, you would have the option to use:

 

1 - Standard color (White in light mode, black in dark mode obviously, the usual)

 

2 - Dynamic color:

                     1- Take color from the Favicon

                     2- Take color from the page header background or accent color

From page header background or accent color:

@Richard950 I'd have to disagree that this should be a feature and instead should be an extension.  Basically an enhanced version of Tab Colorizer for Chrome.

 

@renke-pkey  Why? The activation would be optional, not permanent. Having two options: Use standard color (light/dark) or dynamic, just like Vivaldi

This is not a customization that I would use.  Such an option would be fine as long as there is still an option to not color tabs.

@Deleted  Of course, with 2 options: use standard color (light / dark) or dynamic color

Thank you @Richard950 for the suggestion. I will make sure our theme team (hey that rhymes) see this feedback. For the sake of argument, were there an extension in the store that did this, would that work for you?

@Richard950 

 

I think I was just confused.  I thought there should be three options, use standard color (light / dark), use dynamic color, or do not color.

@Deleted  Only two, with the standard option would always be white in light mode or black in dark mode obviously, the usual.
And with the dynamic mode Exchange according to the accent color of the website

@Elliot Kirk I know extensions to change color tabs, but if I'm not mistaken, there is not one to change according to the color of a website. I edited the description to better clarify the options that would have
