    And when is this magical v62 going to exist outside the realm of your imagination?



    (I'm not saying that you are lying, I'm just getting excited )



    EDIT: I put v60. I have 60, 62 is the magical one...

    Where do the tabs appear? Below the bookmarks bar? On it?

    below, sort of hanging off of it. they are metal; the frontmost one appears to be a part of the plane of the toolbar and bookmark bar; inactive tabs are a darkened metal, and appear to be on a further 'behind' plane as compared to the other tabs.



    it's completely clear why metal is used, upside down aqua tabs would be odd looking. i do not know if they are rearrangeable, but they are clearly a custom control class.



    each tab has its own close box, which is closely akin the grey 'x' from the search field.

    umm, screenies would be nice for those of us who are not 1337. Thanks.

    Gawd...I can't believe Hyatt convinced Apple to use this f**king lame concept. If tabs remain, they'd better be rearangeable and easy to use than the Chimera tabs when Safari goes final.

    I won't believe it until I see screenshots (that or it's on my computer!)

    If you don't like them don't use them.

    I don't like it because it promotes a single window approach to web browsing. It's the antithesis of multitasking to hide something behind another completely. It's bringing the MDI way of doing things to the Mac. It's promoting a bad habit, IMO.

    I'd like to use them if they were more usable. Alas I don't like having to open my window screen-wide so that name truncation doesn't occur and so everything is legible.



    Don't roll your eyes at me or I'll send my foot up your arse.

    It's a cop-out to tell critics of abysmal interface design not to use the interface in question.



    MDI is evil. Tabs are a particularly virulent and ill-considered type of MDI. They have no place in an application designed by a company that prides itself on interface design.



    Oh well. I suppose I can always wait for OmniGroup to show Apple how it's done.

    how do I activate the "hidden debug menu" like thinksecret says to do?

    I said this in the MacNN forums, but the good news (i'm grasping now) is that the "tabs" look more like temporary items added to the bookmarks bar than true tabs.



    Not only are tabs for web pages poor UE, so is the MDI concept in total. Why people can't seem to manage multiple windows using either the Dock icons or the Window menu is beyond me.

    From Mac OS X Hints.. (great resource BTW)



    Step 1 - QUIT Safari

    Step 2 - In the terminal type: defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 1



    Once done just run Safari again and you should see Debug right after the Help menu...
