What is Tab Vault?
Tab Vault is a place to store the tabs you want to get to later without leaving them in memory and on your tab bar. It's like bookmarks, except it reminds you how many tabs you've stored away.
(Yes, it's similar to michalborek's To-Read sites. No, I'm not copying him. I started building this as a Unite app before Opera extensions were announced, but I decided to rewrite everything as an extension.)
How does it work?
Click the extension's button to open the Tab Vault pop-up.
Click Save Tab to store the current tab in the vault. Click on a saved tab to open it in a new tab, or click the X on the right to send it to Tab Vault's trash. Ctrl + click on a tab to open it in the background or drag the tab onto the web page to open it in the current page.
You can drag saved tabs to reorder them. Tab Vault 2.0 now supports tab groups. When dragging a tab, move your cursor to the right edge of the tab (over the arrow icon) and drop it onto another tab to create a group. Groups can be expanded and collapsed just like tab stacks, and you can rename them by clicking the pen icon that appears when you hover your mouse over a group.
Click "Trash" at the top to get to Tab Vault's trash. Any tab you delete from the main list will show up here until you clear the list. Just like with Opera's Closed Tabs, click an item in the list to undelete it, or click Clear List of Closed Tabs to empty the list.
Tab Vault can also import and export Opera's session files. You can use this to back up your tabs for safekeeping.
If you need help using Tab Vault, click the help link at the bottom of Tab Vault's options page. If that doesn't answer your question, ask in the comments here and I'll do my best to answer it.

If you have comments, questions, or find a problem, please post in the comments below!
- The "Drop to open in current page" message does not show up on pages containing iframes in Opera 11.01 or lower. This is fixed in Opera 11.10.
- The "Copy Tab URL" context menu item will not function at first due to Adobe Flash's security settings. Check Tab Vault's options page for instructions to fix this. It won't work if you have plugins disabled either.
