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.

The lack of automatic updates is definitely a flaw in Opera 9, that's why this feature has been added to Opera 10. But while this is a problem for people who don't understand the importance of updates, I don't see why occasional manual updates should be a deal breaker for more experienced users.

It's something that takes a few minutes, once every few months, which hardly compares with issues of efficient day to day browsing. I'm not going to suffer a slower, less stable browser with a vastly inferior interface (IMO obviously) just because of the minor inconvenience when an update is released.
