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.

If you have 100 tabs open, you'd surely be better off with 100 bookmarks - they provide a mechanism for sorting, renaming and most importantly persistence. For most people is it not just a case of good housekeeping/organisation?


It depends on what you use the web for and how you use your browser; one size does not fit all.

Personally I use bookmarks for the relatively small number of sites that I visit regularly. I want to keep my bookmarks efficiently and consistently organised for quick and easy access. I don't want to clutter them up with hundreds of daily news stories, forum posts, or film/music reviews that I'll delete after reading once.

When necessary tabs can be sorted and organised into different windows, and it's quicker to close open pages as I go along than create/open/delete a bunch of bookmarks.
