Hi,

First of all a wonderful release..

Just a few comments:

1. Sidebar Tabs: Too many.. for some reason I want to add the whole 600 available.. but if you put more than 7.. you can hardly see anything in the window.

Would it not be better if we had a drop down list of some sort to select a tab and only one is displayed at any one time. This way we can add as many tabs as we want. and still see what is in the Tab window.

2. Skin Installation: You know the way SideBad tabs are added? Just click on a link and it is in.. would it not be nice if the same was true for Skins? Just click and it is downloaded and automaticly installed.

3. Plug-ins: There are very few things i like about IE, but one of them is the way it tells you when it needs a plug-in. and all you have to do is just click GET and it automatically installs.

==> Maybe mozilla should have an installer of its own which can be used to download and install updates, patches, add-ins and plug-ins.

Thanx Ali K
