tabs in browsers  
Looks like the new version of IE has a feature for tabs that firefox doesn't - a tab browser. See the bottom of http://getanewbrowser.com/2006/02/ie7-beta-test.html
I wonder if Firefox has an extension to do that, or if not, how long it will take.

Tab browsing.....
...is a feature of Firefox. I've looked at the IE beta stuff, and have been underwhelmed to date.

Neither, of course, is my favorite. Opera has a solid, if underappreciated browser.

Re: Tab browsing.....
Did you look at the picture in the article? There's an option to see a thumbnail of each tab - browsing the tabs, rather than browsing with tabs.

I'm very fond of tabbed browsing. I hate when I have to use IE now.

I don't know why I haven't really tried Opera. I only hear good things about it.

Re: Tab browsing.....
When I tried Opera a couple of years ago, I had nothing but problems with it. There's probably a newer version now that doesn't have these problems, but it didn't support like half the site I went to, including my online banking, which I use everyday.

Ah yes, banks seems to be the worst comercial sites. I have problems with one of my banks with Firefox. I use IE for it, but it's pretty crap in IE too!

Re: Tab browsing.....
...yes, but thumbnail tab browsing is poor (Firefox 1.1 I believe had it), if you are more interested in written content than image content.

Opera takes a brief adjustment period to get used to [IE people particularly dislike it], but I still prefer it to others.

Re: Tab browsing.....
Did it? I never noticed!

I'll probably give Opera a go again sometime. I've a couple of friends who use it.
