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.

RE[4]: Vim window-splits

Ah, Windows. That's (lack of a good window manager) something I struggle with everytime I have to use a Windows machine. It's amazing how the lack of little things like snap-to-edges, maximise-when-move-to-sides, convert-to-tab, make life so difficult on Windows. You don't really appreciate these little features until you work on a system without them. ;)

Snap-to-edges always pisses me off, and I turn it off whenever I'm using a system that has it turned on.

convert-to-tab us useless to me, as the only app that I feel tabs are useful are web browsers.

maximize-whem-moved-to-sides is done in Windows 7... drag a window to the top, it maximizes. Drag it to the left or right, it maximizes vertically and covers half the screen horizontally. Double-click on the resize portion at the top of a window and it maximizes.

I guess it's just what you're used to.

xp doesn't do those other win7 actions. maybe some shell/desktop addon does those.

tab grouping?
default install of xp would group multiple windows of all apps (including explore) in the taskbar. very annoying.

anything that snaps to edges (such the annoying surprise!-here's-a-new-toolbar! in windows) also won't work well for me, because i keep drop folders along the display edges.
perhaps beneficial: if the windows would snap to invisible cfg-able margins.
