Some Tabs by DanRabbit Some Tabs by DanRabbit
Comparing different kinds of tabs, specifically in the case of a web view.

One major drawback of the current notebook widget is that the open side of the tab makes this really jarring transition into a backgrounds that don't match it's color.

One solution is to invert the tabs so that the open side faces the content above.

Another is to move the tabs to the top as seen in Opera, Chrome, and Firefox.

Dan, by the look of the Midori webpage mockup, I believe you went for the second solution: upside down tabs.

But how would it work with the shortcuts bar enabled? I mean because of that bars gradient, it would imply changing the tab color depending on the presence of the bar. Do you have a solution for that?

I already had that solved with the tabs on your egtk widget mockup, but this new design will delay my theme update release :D
