I don't like tabs either and see them as a pointless waste of screen
space when the OS already has window management and its own taskbar
which can be hidden but I don't care that tabs are supported because I
have the choice not to use them. Tabs also seem to use more resources
and essentially duplicate functionality already in the OS.

Granted but why do things like change the download progress dialog UI
to be less usable because you don't like dialogs (Your words:
"Download progress dialogs ? Eww!"). There really is no reason why
this can't look more or less the same as SeaMonkey 1.x

Does this mean that people who like the SeaMonkey 1.x UI aren't the
target audience for SeaMonkey 2.0 ??
