The world saw two new browsers this week: IE7 and Firefox 2.0.! And what changed as a consequence?
Tabbed browsing in IE7
Oh there was tabbed browsing in IE6 through an add-on from Microsoft itself. And I remembered their well-positioned close buttons, but couldn't locate them now!
Is there a new completely intuitive way to close tabs that I couldn't discover? Had I fallen below Scott Adams "incompetence line", using the browsers benchmark?
Mercifully, the close buttons appeared when I opened a second tab. But for a while I was scared!
Tabbed browsing in Firefox 2.0
The text from Bookmarks Toolbar periodically overlaps the tabs, making them unreadable! This couldn't be a bug in the new Firefox!!
Does it only affect some windows users or those with a certain display adapter? Should I upgrade the browser on the laptop and check if that too is similarly affected? Should I do a net search first?
The spellcheck in Firefox 2.0 is really cool.
I liked it instantly. It even worked in Google chat from within gmail. Naturally, of course! So let me not think too much about the garbled text for now.
