Chrome / Firefox tabs in title bar
« on: April 12, 2011, 05:12:31 AM »
Both Firefox 4 and Chrome can put the tabs in the title bar. But they both do that only when maximised. Anyone knows why that is? Anyone knows if it's easily possible to have one or both of these do that also when not maximised?

For FF, does the following help at all?

Well, it kind of does. But it overlaps the min/max/close buttons and makes it look kind of ugly. But I guess the fact that there's a Stylish style that does this indicates that there's no hidden FF setting that would do it. I really don't understand why they restricted this to maximised windows only  :tellme:

i'm curious too about this feature, it's kinda annoying with all the wasted space. :)

You can move the tab bar down to whichever level you wish. Firefox 4. Look in Options or Customize.

I've also been curious about this in Chrome. The Tabs never overlap the space taken up by the Min/Max/Close buttons anyway, so why aren't they all at the same level?
