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 don't get it.

You either don't really know that Opera 10 will have auto-updates or you forcibly don't want to acknowledge this.

The thread you linked to has some users alerting to the fact that Opera lack of self-updating is soon to be fixed. As some users in here also have pointed that out.

True it hasn't been doing so this far, but this ought to be changed very soon.

Also on top of the self-updating feature I think all browsers should have a limited timeframe on which they could browse the web - for example, two years. After that it can only access offline\intranet webpages forcibly causing users\admins to update to the new version.

My uni still has Firefox 2 on most computers - others have version 3 beta 5, and it doesn't look like they will update soon.
