Mozilla & Gecko clones Today, Mozilla released the fourth beta of Firefox 4.0. After a period of what I would call stagnation, the Mozilla team are back on track with delivering interesting UI concepts. They were sensible enough to copy Chrome's excellent tabs-on-top UI, but have now also added something called Panorama, a new and very interesting way of managing your open tabs.

Tabs (little off topic)

Thom, it is quite difficult to understand why you don't like tabs. They are much easier to handle with shortcuts than separate windows (especially if you are running several different programs). You can see web site titles so you always know what you opened. Tabs allow to work much faster and easier in the browser. You can see one page at time but you don't need to close what you'll read in a second and you can switch instantly. Of course, I think that there is a limit how much tabs you should open and sometimes they become like zombies which are never accessed but you can always close them or just start new session without any tabs. Maybe your browsing habits are different.
