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.

In my opinion, good window management and tab management should be part of the window manager. If any application thinks it has to implement tabs or any sort of MDI to be good, then the window manager has failed.

I think this feature won't replace window management but sessions and group bookmarks. The point is that you can organize your webdesktop by having a permanent place to put your tabs and group them by how you use them. The tabs on your webdesktop don't have to be loaded until you click them so you can have hundreds of tabs there without bogging down Firefox. The grouping also can give you extra information to find them later.
