Safari and tabbed browsing

Think Secret has the story and pictures. Let’s hope it’s true and I might look into using Safari a bit more often. Chimera is still tops for me right now.

    so what… maybe I’m a freak for not liking tabs, but I think it’s because I don’t run my browser at full screen like all the windoids. I already have a highly configurable, manageable multiple document interface. They are windows. Perhaps you’ve heard of them. So my major concern is that there will be this tab-centric interface that totally screws up the interface that I already like, effectively downgrading the browser for me.

    You know what I want? I want more configurable cache settings and for spell check to be on by default in text fields. Those would be improvements I’d call noteworthy

    re: so what… But the tabbed browsers DO automatically open new browser windows just like all the regular browsers. Tabs aren’t forced. You can still use your multiple windows, but why not add the ability for tabs for people who like them?

    re: so what… Juat to clarify, in all the browsers I’ve use with tabs (and I admit, these are all gecko based) if you don’t use tabs you never see them. My guess is that this will also be the case in safari.

    When I browse I can have twenty pages open at once. It gets difficult to maximize, minimize, expand, and order all those windows. With a tabbed interface, I have one window for browsing that I can move more easily.

    I’m just guessing here, but I think tabbed browsing interests people more based on how much information they’re comfortable/used to/able/interested in handling at any given point in time. Personally, I swamp myself with data, flipping between articles, blogs, pages, etc rapidly. It’s the only way I can read eveything I want in the time I have.

    Although I disagree with your opinion on tabs, I have to say I agree completely with your other “improvements”. Spell checking in text areas would definitely be great in my book.
