FF3.5 - What Do You Use Tab Tearing For?

  SimpleSimon1 15:34 06 Sep 2009

The title says it all. I might be living up to my username but why would anyone want to tear tabs to new windows and thus create extra processes?

I thought the whole idea of tabs was to cut down on the profusion of windows that IE used to inflict on us.

Thanks SeaUrchin but I'd already seen that. It tells me what tab-tearing is but not why I'd want it (other than the nebulous comment about "providing a more intuitive way to organize your web browsing.").

I guess I'm asking what's more intuitive about creating extra windows when tabs were designed to do away with the need for them!
