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 )."

MDI, Tabs, ... are just inadequate responses to crappy window management found in most GUIs by default. This should be a feature of the environment, not of the individual applications.

In mozilla it will just cause serious UI bloat since many features need to be implemented in 2 orthogonal ways (for tabs and for windows).
