keeping better tabs

Ben Goodger (the lead engineer on Firefox) has some interesting explanatations for a few experimental refinements they’ve made to Firefox’s tabbed browsing features. Reading his post kind of sold me on the changes and using ‘em for the past day or so has me hoping that they’ll make it into the 1.5 final release. He explains that the usability study which partly inspired the changes was provided by Google, which I suppose means I should be thanking them as well.

On a somewhat related note (and to explain why I tagged this with a ‘flash’ category), as Mozilla ramps up for a public release of Firefox 1.5 they’ve been sharing intentions in regards to future plans for the Mozilla platform. Specifically, Chris Beard has put together a draft roadmap and Brendan Eich has been discussing Mozilla’s future in general as well as sharing design notes for JavaScript 2. This is a really helpful way of succinctly summarizing plans and is something that I would also find useful seeing from Macromedia in regards to the Flash Platform.

(While I kind of like this post’s current title, perhaps ‘all over the map’ would’ve been just as appropriate) ;-)

    I’m also commenting to let you know of the beneficial experience my cousin’s daughter went through using your site. She came to find a good number of pieces, which included how it is like to have a very effective giving spirit to let other folks smoothly know a variety of impossible subject areas. You actually exceeded her expected results. Thanks for giving these informative, safe, educational and cool thoughts on that topic to Sandra.
