Tabbed Browsing…

I still can’t get used to this new fangled tabbed browsing. At first, when I’d just heard about it I thought it was quite stupid but now; now that I’ve had a chance to use it? It’s neater than sliced toast.

My two biggest problems?

Firstly, dragging the mouse down to the bottom of the screen to the taskbar to switch between two open browser windows. Even though the little man in the back of my head is screaming “NO! You idiot, TABS, they’re up top here {points}” I’m still racing to the bottom of the screen in a Pavlovian response to where I jumped between windows for SO many years.

The other problem is when I’m done with the information on one tab, say copy and pasting stuff for one of the blog entries you all are so fond of reading {crickets}… I head for the bit red X up in the corner to close the browser window I’m done with. Then Windows (and the little man screaming in my head) asks me “Look, stupid, you’ve got more than one browser window open, doing THAT will close them all. Do you really want to look like a twit or shall we try again and click the X on the TAB you want to close?”

Hawk (Damn that little man in my head!)
