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.

So Opera's late to the game on one feature...

http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/2009/05/13/auto-updated-alread... -- Opera's working on an auto-update.

I tested it for this build of Opera 10 and it worked in about the same way that Firefox's works: It downloaded the update, then installed it. Sure Opera's looked more like it was installing the program again, but I suspect Firefox's works in a similar fashion, but the install processes are wrapped to a nicer (and more automated) GUI.

Yeah, Opera's late on one feature, but I forgive them for all of the other stuff they've pioneered. ;)

I've been an Opera user forever, but I still treat it like my dirty secret: I tell people "Yeah, but I use a web browser that most people don't. You've got Firefox on your machine, right?" even though I pretty much hate Firefox.

I do advocate Chrome, though. Whole-heartedly.
