Dear Apple Computer,
We, the undersigned, are excited about your new browser release, Safari. However, we feel that the product misses one vital component, namely tabbed browsing.
As your human interface guidelines state, you strive for elegance and simplicity with the design of Aqua applications. We believe that tabbed browsing would not only greatly enhance the usability of Safari, but also help it embrace these guidelines even more by greatly reducing on-screen window clutter.
Also note that several competing Mac browsers, namely Mozilla, Netscape and Chimera already include tabbed browsing, and that the feature has been a hit with users.
We sincerely hope that you choose to include tabbed browsing in refreshed betas of Safari, as well as its final version.
Thanks, and keep thinking differently.
