Mozilla & Gecko clones Today, Mozilla released the fourth beta of Firefox 4.0. After a period of what I would call stagnation, the Mozilla team are back on track with delivering interesting UI concepts. They were sensible enough to copy Chrome's excellent tabs-on-top UI, but have now also added something called Panorama, a new and very interesting way of managing your open tabs.

Couldn't agree more. I find the differences between MDI interfaces in different applications quite jarring, and of course they don't allow to group documents/windows from different applications. Not to mention all the duplicated work.

KWin in KDE SC 4.4+ allows you to combine top-level windows into a single tabbed window. Works quite nicely. Thus, you could hide the tab-bar in Firefox, configure it to open in new windows instead of new tabs, and let KWin handle everything for you.
