still not sure what the great benefit would be over what Safari currently can
With Safari I can click on a link and have the result appear either in the
current window or in a new window which can be made to appear either in front
of or in back of the current window. Any of the windows, regardless of where
they are positioned in the layer, can be concurrently loading. At any time I
can switch between the multiplicity of open windows by pointing and clicking
on the wanted selection in the "Window" menu in the system menu bar. The
items in the Window menu use the page titles that appear at the top of each
of the currently active windows. The title also informs me if any window is
in a state of still loading. All of this ability to switch between multiple
windows is available via a single entry point from the menubar.
Having not used a so-called "tabbed" browser, I'm puzzled as to how the
switching facilities provided by tabs are better than what is already
provided in Safari. It would seem, at least to me, that there would be a
disadvantage in that screen real estate which could be of possible benefit,
providing more space for the page being presented, would be diminished.
