    I believe it's only a home tab concept design and does not reflect Firefox 4.0's actual interface. In other words, you're looking at the wrong part of the picture :).
  4. Sorry, but this is channel 104 on directv for your home page.... No thanks
  5. Sessions and speed dial have already been on Opera for a long time and the only difference is that they put sessions in the home page. Looks like most of the ideas where introduced in Opera then everyone then saw it useful and put it in theirs like tabs opera has had it since 2002 even firefox hasn't come out until 2004. The speed dial was also Opera's idea, Sessions and more(too much to mention).
  6. I had problems hearing the commentators voice over the disturbing bakgroundnoice called music (?) so I just quit trying.

    Why not let us choose what we want on our homepage? I guess I'll just have to stick with iGoogle.

    I hate the Speed Dail Bookmark Toolbar is just fine for me all I do is erase any words whenever I bookmark it and it just leaves the icon. Enough with the speed dail and I agree with the Guest Opera first came out with the Speed dail then IE well a Firefox did with an addon then I think Safari 4 did it aswell not sure then Chrome and Google that also improves the speed dail by installing there toolbar which is quite a nice speed dail but I like the concept never got a chance to vote seems I'm not quite a active concerning my favorite browser but it nice

    This is perfect...everything that I would actually end up using. I realize other browsers came out with a lot of ideas first...but does that really matter? I'm just glad to see them all on firefox (the only browser I use) in one place and right up front for easy access.
