I voted for the new positioning_

I have not used Tabs since they were introduced - in their old location_ Several years now_ I am warming up to the new WebKit implementaion of them - Chrome and now Safari_

Those speaking of the way Omniweb implements their Tabbing - this actually goes back to IE 5.x for the Mac when pretty everything but the URL Bar was in a slide in/ slide out panel on the left of the browser_

Even the "new"ish Page Preview that Chrome and Opera and Safari are now incorporating came from IE 5.x for the Mac_ IE5/ Mac used to show a page Thumnail in one of the sidebar Interface Tabs_ Not sure if it recached it regularly but I remember having an icon view option built in - then click on it and go to that particular website_

Nobody's really seeing anything new - we're all just seeing old ideas re-invented_

Adobe's is doing this same thing with Illustrator - many of the "new features" they announce for the past several versions of AI have come from old versions of Aldus/ Macromedia Freehand_ they've simply been updated and enhanced_

Sorry for the history lesson - but my vote goes for the Tabs on Top_

Also - if you really don;t like the new style - you all better start complaining to Apple quick 'cause Sno-Leopard and the final releases are right around the corner - if enough folks speak up between now and then - they're likely to change stuff as it is still a Beta_
