Google "Tabs, tabs, tabs. The specialist subject of UI experts everywhere. Should tabs just rearrange horizontally or also detach? How much vertical scroll buffer should a tab have before it detaches? Under what circumstances should it detach? What about reattaching? This is a short piece concerned only with the different behaviours when closing tabs in Google Chrome, as I think these behaviours are fantastically thought through."

Sorry, I like Seamonkey's tabs a lot better. I especially hate how middle-clicking a link in Chrome opens the tab adjacent to the current one. I also love having the X on the right instead of on each tab.

I guess it's a matter of personal preference, but that's one of the specific things I *like* about Chrome. I find it helps to have related tabs grouped together (I currently have 7 FF windows open, with 109 tabs) - opening new tabs next to the current one just means I spend less time rearranging the tabs.
