  • The title for a specific question page (displayed in the browser tab) shows the community name followed by the question title:
  • ![Current browser tabs showing community name first](https://meta.codidact.com/uploads/a2gj13x4qae4tr38syxct5j6bv4p)
  • This means that only the first word or two of the question title are visible. Even less is visible when tabs become narrower when many are open at once.
  • If instead the page title was the question title followed by the community name (switch the order), then more of the question title would be visible:
  • ![Proposed browser tabs showing question title first](https://meta.codidact.com/uploads/dui3kc40s9s6eit3dcy4d57zz3dx)
  • This would make it easier to distinguish between different questions when several are open in different browser tabs.

  • ## Identifying which community
  • As this change would mean the community name is no longer visible in the browser tab without hovering to see the full page title, I have also requested a [unique favicon per community](https://meta.codidact.com/posts/287744).

Show question title before community name in browser tab
The title for a specific question page (displayed in the browser tab) shows the community name followed by the question title:

![Current browser tabs showing community name first](https://meta.codidact.com/uploads/a2gj13x4qae4tr38syxct5j6bv4p)

This means that only the first word or two of the question title are visible. Even less is visible when tabs become narrower when many are open at once.
