Tabs back down under, but...
Authored by: MartiNZ on Jun 08, '09 09:00:39PM

Yeah that seems to be becoming the trend - just keep pushing whacky UI decisions on us, and then just when we're getting used to the changes, pull the rug out from under us, and whatever you do, DON'T give any options!

What we've ended up with is worse than tabs on top, practically speaking, but more defensible, UIly speaking, imo. The new 'loading' bar is rather ugly, and still having refresh as just that not very button-like button on the address bar is kind of annoying.

You can hide the toolbar, and it happily lets you remove the address bar from the toolbar, but then try opening pages! 'Open Location...' just shows the toolbar - didn't it used to open a separate dialog? At least then you could hide the ugly toolbar for real.

By enabling Safari Tweak menu, it seems that you can revert the Tabs on top (for what it worth)... http://pointum.com/safari-tweaks.html

If you hide the toolbar (like with Cmd-|, being Cmd-pipe), then hitting Cmd-L will make it pop down to allow for changing the location. Hit Enter and the toolbar disappears again. However, if you don't hit Enter (but, for example hit Cmd-R to refresh, or Tab to get out of there) then indeed it no longer seems hidden... :-(

It also appears that despite the tabs being back down under the toolbar, the oval to collapse the toolbar at the right corner has not returned. The lack of that standard UI functionality was my issue with the change in the first place. I totally agree with everyone who thinks Apple has a nasty habit of insisting on "their way of the highway" when it comes to UI issues. Preferences for a lot of different things about the OSX and Apple program UIs would make a lot of people happy, but that would "upset the vision," I guess.
