Undecided, but sticking to it
Authored by: Black on Feb 26, '09 11:45:46AM

For me, the jury is still out, but I'm mostly in the below camp. The saved space is nice, but it isn't enough to make a huge difference to me (it is what, maybe two lines of text?). I never had a conceptual problem with dragging tabs, and frankly I find the restriction of having to drag just the corners now, rather than anywhere on the tab to be a little annoying. I'm also finding that I frequently forget how many tabs I have open.

That said, I've not applied yesterday's hint to restore them to the bottom. I don't fully understand all of the folks who rushed to download the beta only to dig up all of the "hidden" preferences to restore it to S3 behavior. What was the point? What kind of informed decision is it if you make it after a couple of minutes? How is it any different from saying 'it is different and strange and I don't like change'? Apple has a long history of not listening to reactionaries who want the status quo (sometimes for the better, sometime not). I say give it a chance. This is a beta after all, not some kind of mandatory upgrade (folks who need to write editorials aside, of course). Give yourself time to loath it it properly - you are more likely to have a convincing opinion afterwards if nothing else....
