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.

Kinda, but it still lacks a proper way to handle a huge amount of tabs, MDI or not.


Can you explain what you mean by "a proper way"?

There are ways Opera could be improved, but its handling of large numbers of tabs is far better than any other browser I've seen.

It certainly doesn't have any trouble comfortably dealing with 50-100 open tabs, more than that if you sort them into different windows. Conventional tabbed browsers become a mess with a fraction of that.

When you have such a large number of tabs, the advantages of Opera's Windows Panel over a tab bar become very significant; especially the ability to filter the listed tabs and manipulate them as a group.
