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.

I use Safari on a Mac and have Groups where I have multiple websites in each group. I can then click on the group and it automatically opens up a tab for each item in that group. I have about 8 groups.

I have a group for news, and different groups for different variations of technology that fits together for me. And I have a group for car news.

The reason I do this is so that I don't always have to wait for the web pages to open. This way I wait a little longer and all of them open. As I finish reading one I hit Command-W and it closes that tab and the next tab is now the active tab and I read that website and so on.

It works great and is a lot more enjoyable than having one tab open where I have to do multiple clicks to go to the next website.

That's exactly how I browse. It works most of the time but breaks down when I want to read it later. Then I have to either bookmark it(and probably forget it) or put it in the read later window.
