Mozilla & Gecko clones Tabbed browsing is pretty much the norm by now, with even someone like me (who disliked it vehemently for a long time) finally giving in and start using tabbed browsing (thanks to Chrome, by the way). Well, apparently, Mozilla thinks its time to move on. They believe tabbed browsing has become obsolete, and are asking users to come up with a better alternative.

I'm kind of surprised to hear this. While I can see that the interface style is probably getting old and there are probably better alternatives, I don't think I've ever had more than 10 tabs open at any time. How much information can a person really take in at once and how much info is required to be shared across multiple sites at once (on the user level, at least)? It seems like it's a bit overkill to have this much going on at once.
