I not entirely sure the close gadget needs to be on the left of a tab for a consistant UI since in my mind the tab is unrelated to the window decoration...

That said, Apple have the window close gadget on the left... And have their tab close gadget on the left... They pay people millions of dollars every year to think about this stuff... So I guess they are correct :-)

@bloodline

Windows have gadgets and gadgets are not "decoration", gadgets are part of the UI.

But in AROS the gadgets are part of the decoration system and the location of the close gadget is controlled by the decoration prefs and can be either left or right! (depending upon design) ;)

In Firefox, about:config, browser.tabs.closeButtons lets you choose where you want them to be.

On AmigaOS UI the most coherent place would be the left side because you already close other GUI elements (e.g. Windows) with a gadget on the left.


Since on AROS the close gadget is part of the decoration stuff (and hence it is user-configurable), it can be either placed on the left or the right.

Putting close gadgets at the right of the tabs will confuse amigans since amigans have close gadgets at left. Putting the close gadget at the right on MS Windows is the best place since the user closes the windows with a gadget located at the right.


I frankly hope amigans are not so retarded to be confused by the ONLY gadget present on the tab (apart the title).

Anyway if the close gadget of the tabs was configurable problem solved for those people who is used to alien OSes with close gadgets on the right.


I hope Stanislaw will look into this only later and if he has time to waste, because the most urget goal is to have a working, full-featured browser, and not making happy a few people who has ALWAYS to be negative for something and to cry for stupid things (like this one).

The big news is we finally have a browser, and what I have got to read here? "the close gadget in tabs is in the wrong place". I really can't express how silly this comment is IMHO.

PS: Stanislaw has done a great work :-)


Well, at least this is clear to everyone.

Then the close gadget of whatever element should be located in the same place to keep the usage uniform and to avoid confusion.

Some people may expect the user is not so retarded to require a GUI or "launching scripts" with fashionable names, but users like GUIs and good designed GUIs have uniform way of working without arbitrarities.

All AROS is missing now is a World of Warcraft client and then I won't need Windows/Mac anymore, lol!
