    "Firefox + Tab Mix Plus = Internet Explorer 7"

    June 21, 2007  |   By Fil0403


    Multiple tab customizations.


    Annoying blank tabs when you download files? No option to view tabs as thumbnails? I find it rather amusing (not surprising at all, though) how these cons never come up (and, thus, never count) when CNET is reviewing Firefox. You can either download and install Firefox and Tab Mix Plus and use them together (having in mind every add-on makes your browser startup time slower) or just use Internet Explorer 7, which doesn't have any "blank tabs when you download files" and has an option to view tabs as thumbnails in the first place.

    If you had ever used Firefox you would only use IE when a site doesn't support it.

    Simply being able to have the CHOICE to add a functionality, or not, makes Firefox win hands down.

    Faster, safer, themes, add ons, extensions, being treated as if I actually have a brain; humpf, mere bonuses.

    So Internet Explorer's tabbing is 10x slower than Firefox is with 10 add-ons running simultaneously.

    Dumbest review i've ever read

    I've downloaded quite a few files since having this addon, and no blank tabs because of it. Some sites do it automatically (such as so make sure you're getting your facts straight before you're posting meaningless information. Wait, information would bmean creditability. Never mind.
