Editorial Late last week we ran a story on how the Google Chrome team had decided to use Gtk+ as the graphical toolkit for the Linux version of the Chrome web browser. It was a story that caused some serious debate on a variety of aspects, but in this short editorial, I want to focus on one aspect that came forward: the longing for consistency. Several people in the thread stated they were happy with Google's choice for purely selfish reasons: they use only Gtk+ applications on their GNOME desktops. Several people chimed in to say that Qt integrates nicely in a Gtk+ environment. While that may be true from a graphical point of view, that really isn't my problem with mixing toolkits. The issue goes a lot deeper than that.

actually I did try kde for a while and I HATED the kterminal's tabs being at the bottom. It really bugged the hell out of me. OSX and gnome both have the tabs at the top of the window.

Right click, edit profile, select that tab called "tabs", select tab bar position "above terminal displays" -- and presto!

Not sure what the incantation was for KDE 3's konsole, but it was equally possible. I always put the tabs on top, too.
