How about on Mozilla?
Authored by: paploo on Nov 23, '02 05:43:00PM

In my opinion, using *just* tabs is almost the same as using *just* new windows. In this case, the advantage of tabs is marginal compared to windows. However, the real genius of tabs is in the extra level of organization it gives me. It allows me to group related pages of content as different tabs in one window. This fits my non-linear, parallel browsing style perfectly. I can open up a window for macslash, a window for slashdot, and a window for google news. Then, in each of those, I open up tabs for all the articles that look good to me. Then I can come back through and read the articles as I want to. The benefit is that now instead of having them all mixed in different tabs or windows, I have them grouped. Macslash stuff in one, slashdot in another, and google news in another.

Of course, I'm not saying that everyone has to view this way. Everyone is different and everyone views in different ways. And that is exactly my point. While some people might be happy using only tabs (and others only windows), many of us like using both to maximise our organization. :)


P.S. - Now if someone came up with grouped tabs (in an non UI messy way), that might make me only want one window.
