Windows aero equviliant for tabs in Opera?

Maybe not the right place :P but is there any add-on for Opera that previews tabs when you hover on them?
The funniest thing about this signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything its too late to stop reading it.

They removed it when they moved to webkit/blink, along with just about everything else that made opera good.

However this particular one is coming back:

It may be worth checking out again in a few versions. Looks like they're adding some useful features back in.

I guess that's one way to solve rendering engine compliance issues.  Stop using other rendering engines.

Kind of a bummer.  I used Opera as my primary browser for a while.  It was pretty nice.  Sad to see it go become another WebKit shell.  (Not that I have a problem with WebKit -- I've been a fan since KHTML on KDE 3.)
