    Wow it took them forever to actually get the "mass tab closing" feature implemented, it was one of the great features on Chrome that I missed on Firefox, well no more!

    Whoop-de-freakety-do, I can close tabs on my left now, I can close tabs on my right now, ... I'm pumped...

    My philosophy is this - if your desktop gets stinky-full of useless browser pages, stop #ucking clicking on every trash link you see in this public trash bin a.k.a Internet.

    The bottom line is this...
    There can never be a browser good enough to counteract the lawful right of its user to be an idi0t.

    That's it. There's no hope for me :<

    On a more serious note...I approve of the, "close all tabs to the right" option. Somedays I find myself opening waaaayyyyy too many tabs. This gives me the option to start over, fresh and clean, and try again.

    My philosophy is this; it's not possible to have too many erotic art tabs open at once. At least not with a 32 bit browser.
  6. Firefox also has back doors built in for the NSA to spy on you...

    Some require lots of tabs opened up due to work, I at times had well over 100 tabs opened up (in Chrome, Firefox wasn't cutting it).

    One hundred tabs, you say? I say pshaw, that's child's play....

    And believe it or not, I can open up a couple of hundred in FF, on an old P-4 eMachines on XP SP-2. I have less luck with a Win 7 Pent dual core with more memory. I guess that's progress for ya!

    Anyhoo, why is this news? all you have to do now, is open tabs of the same topic and relationship in another Window, then close the window.
  9. News flash! Firefox is open source hence it render back doors useless.
