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 netscape had patented the web browser then there would be neither IE (which would be a good thing) nor Opera. Firefox, being the fork from netscape is the oldest of them all.


The only problem with that argument the 'prior art' clause in patent law because Tim Berners-Lee's browser 'WorldWideWeb', beat Mosaic by a good 2 years.
