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.

"Even with a better window manager, moving tabs between separate windows, then manipulating those windows, adds extra complexity and extra work, slowing down browsing."

No, he's not talking about using tabs at all. And the extra work you're referring to applies equally to panorama: you've still got to group your windows manually. The idea is to group them as you create them, rather than wait until it becomes a big job and to do this in a consistent manner, rather than each application having it's own way of doing this.
