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 )."

Let's see, I use Mozilla, X-Chat, mutt, gvim, gimp ...

That's lots of applications which may or may not have tabbing (or some other MDI) built-in. I'd rather my wm or some other system wide program provided tabbing, as that means it looks and works consistently. It's as bad as implementing a completely new and different set of menuing widgets, or scroll bars... oh, hang on ;)

Yeah, I know most people don't use pwm. But they *should*, dammit! :)

I don't really mind that mozilla will have tabbing, I just wanted to alert people to the fact there are alternatives to having it builtin, and that in my opinion the alternative provided by pwm is inherently better.
