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.

Ok, when I said "proper way" I meant "my way", as I explained in the parent post.


It seemed to me that what you described in your first post was pretty much exactly what MDI offers. You haven't explained how "your way" actually differs from the Opera way. I'm curious to see how you'd improve it.

No matter what OS you run Opera on, the windows inside the MDI behave as if it was Windows.


I haven't used Opera for Mac OS X, but I was under the impression that it lacked MDI and just worked like other tabbed browsers?

Of course Opera for Linux keeps the Windows style MDI (more or less), it's not like there are standard Linux UI guidelines to comply with.
