Tab Candy – New Firefox 4.0 Innovation

Tab Candy – New Firefox 4.0 Innovation

This has a nice look to it, but I can’t help  but be reminded of Activities feature of the Gnome 3.0 shell.

It seems to me more and more of the things that naturally should be done by the OS are moved into the browser, with window management being the particular example here.

I really think that browser tabs, while being a good feature and workaround for the OS problems we had back when they were invented, should have been surpassed long ago by general OS-level window tabs (And the recent trend to move them to the top f the window proves it, I think).
