Also, Dan Parent from OEone noticed that typing chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul in a tab loads mailnews into the tab! Same with Chatzilla (chrome://chatzilla/content/chatzilla.xul )."

Exactly. Ctrl+Tab better not change. (of course getting rid of sidebar and the frames completely would be even better ;).

The proper solution is to improve navigation between multiple windows.

For people that browse always maximized this multi tab mode gains nothing in UI terms. At least on window the taskbar already has the tabs.
