google homepage tabs

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

googlehome.jpgI love ’em. They appeared last night when I loaded Firefox 2.0 on my home computer. Then they disappeared, then they were back again when I used an add-on/theme.

Found an article here, and some forum talk here – seems like this is old news, but they tab appearances have been spotty.

    I hadn’t really noticed the tabs for a while until your post made me go hunt for them. Looks like they’ve managed to get the tabs working on most every platform.

    Google dominance reigns…
