I have three browsers (Firefox, Opera, and IE7B1) installed on all of my XP workstations. All of the browsers use the popular tabbed browsing interface.
While I think that tabbed browsing is the coolest thing since sliced bread, I’ve noticed something about all of them that drives me nuts; there is no way to close a tab by right clicking on a page itself and selecting an option for “close tab”, the option just doesn’t exist.
Most of these browsers are similar in the way that they close tabs. You can right click on the tab (not the page itself) and select the option to close the tab, you can press CTRL-W to close the tab or click the “x” button for each tab (located to the right in IE7B1 and Firefox, located on each tab in Opera).
I don’t know if there is an extension for Firefox that allows me to do this, but I think that it’s something that should be built into all of the “tabbed” browsers.
I’m gonna submit this to the IE7 team to see if they can add it into IE7.
