    I believe he means Chrome lacks a bookmark sidebar. This has been a top Chrome request for as long as I can remember, for some reason Google remains uninterested.
     
  5. Chrome used to offer Side Tabs, they removed the feature as of Chrome 16 if I remember right. Firefox offers the ability to customize the UI, Chrome doesn't:

    Tree Style Tab: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tree-style-tab/
    Vertical Tabs: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/vertical-tabs/
    Side Tabs: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/side-tabs/

    See my Firefox is using the Side Tabs extension but I edited it and made it to my liking: http://imagecrate.de/u/1337125316_firefoxsidetabs.png

    I really like the tab grouping ability in Opera... wish Chrome had that.

    I haven't really tried Firefox since like version 6, I always had stability issues with it for some reason. Maybe I should try it again...

    I'm still waiting for the x64 version of Chrome. Until then, I'm an avid Waterfox fan!
     
  8. Chrome is unusable for me without TabMixPlus and multi-row tabs that highlight not yet visited tabs with color and font.
