Beautiful vs. Usable

I like Chrome. I really do. It’s a lovely browser. Fast, clean, minimal. But every so often I run into minor irritations like this, which is why I still use Firefox as my main browser.

The way I see it, at this point Chrome’s tabs are as useless as they are beautiful. Firefox shows you less tabs in one go, but at least I can use what I see and I can scroll through the tabs with my mouse’s scroll wheel.
