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.

if it wasn't for the lack of support fron webdesigner who don't care to test for it, and lack of extensions,

Opera would be awesome. the little bugger is pretty stable by itself ( flash change everything ).
Tab management is still the best one yet ( tab bar placement pretty much anywhere ), not that hungry with +50 tabs open ( less than firefox ).
Searchable tab list in the sidebar (helps with more than +100 tabs ).

On another point of view I would say tab are one of the proof that application centric window management was the right approach ( after all it is as implemented an extension of mdi ) and tab bar have been pretty much accepted by any os application handling multiple document or view.

I could have sworn the topic here is new features of Firefox, not how awesome Opera, supposedly, is.

Wrong, the topic is 'INSPIRATIONS for new (not yet existing) Firefox features'... (which can be seen a synonym for 'Opera')
