Firefox 4.0: Browser Tabs on Top or Bottom?

On top or bottom?On top or bottom?

While Firefox 3.7 will bring with it some really cool hardware acceleration features, the next big, big build will be Firefox 4.0. Right now the designers are debating whether to keep the tabs on the bottom of the address bar, like it's done for Internet Explorer and Safari, or move tabs on top of the address bar, like Chrome and Opera do it.

Check out all the points for and against it in the video below. It's fascinating stuff if you spend as much of your day in the browser as we do.

    When in doubt take both.
    Make it up to end-user to choose where to have tab. Problem solved.

    Perhaps I want mine on the left.

    I want to put it in the left or in the right side!
    With the displays that become wider and wider, I'll love to have the tabs steal some horizontal space instead of the rare vertical space.

    Looks like they've made up their minds.
