Restore Safari 3's 'in window' tabs to Safari 4 beta
Authored by: leenoble_uk on Feb 26, '09 01:03:16AM

Call me fussy, but the old tab style was just plain wrong. I never liked the fact that whichever tab was on top was graphically linked to the address bar and window title area, but the page you were actually viewing was not attached to the tab. IT was displayed at the same level as the inactive tabs.

The new method makes much more sense from a visual point of view, and as they are visual elements that's how they should be judged.

That said, I very much doubt that Apple are going to keep this option in place, remember this is a public beta so it has things like the debug button on by default. At some point they are going to take this option away so you're better off just getting used to the change now.

Agreed. And in Safari 4 even the (Google) search is part of the tab: any characters typed in one tab, are not visible in another tab. Well, when switching tabs while typing then things are a bit confusing, but if you don't switch until you've hit Return it behaves like I'd expect it to do :-)

Just noticed that in Safari 3 the (Google) search box also could have different text for each tab.
