Good news! More than 2 years after the initial request, Mozilla has finally decided to implement the Google Chrome like closing tab behavior.
What’s the big deal?
When you close a tab in Google Chrome, they are not immediately resized. As a result, you can instantly close another one without moving your mouse cursor. Google’s browser will only resize tabs when your mouse cursor is outside the tab panel or is there for a long time (which is genius).
However, when it comes to Firefox, it automatically resizes tabs right after you close one and therefore, user must move the mouse cursor in order to close another one.
Well… Say good bye to that!
ETA: Firefox 5, July 2011.
Thanks, Shane Bundy!
