Happy Weekend, MetaFilter! This week, bendy wants to know "How many tabs do you have open in your browser? What are they?" [more inside]
Today I was pleased to notice that Metafilter's Own℠ Avery Edison is the new intern over at Today in Tabs, which is now back from a month's hiatus. That's all. If you don't subscribe you could probably do it now. Or, if that's too much of a commitment, it's also syndicated at FastCompany.
Pony request: I like the way new comments are reflected in the document title. Could we do the same for the main page? [more inside]
Do front page links now open in a new window?
I was wondering if there were any plans to implement custom folders in MeFi Mail that we could move MeFi e-mails to? If not, can we have them please? They could appear in the form of extra tabs next to the 'Your Sent Mail' and 'Your Contacts' tabs. [more inside]
Is there any functional difference between Recent Activity, My Comments (tab) and My Comments (link at bottom of page)? [more inside]
Could there be a place within Mefi Music for people to post tabs? [more inside]
We've still got the CSS rounded tab corners in MetaTalk, so I assume they're not breaking anything - can we have them in the blue and green now? They're purty. Thanks. [more inside]
My Comments: could we get a longer list, or even better, some tabs in addition to the site-wide view that narrow the query down to just MeFi/Meta/Ask/Music? [more inside]
This has occasionally been mentioned before, but are the tabs on the front page currently serving any purpose? The functionality of 'Recent Posts' seems duplicated by the home page, 'My Favorites' by 'Favorites', 'Popular Favorites' by 'Popular', 'My Comments' by, well, 'My Comments'. 'Recent Comments' I simply don't find useful, but that may just be me.
I love the new tab feature, but there's a small bug with AskMe. When the posts are sorted by favorites, anonymous questions are credited to Anonymous Ask MetaFilter instead of the usual anonymous. No crisis, but an inconsistency that may distress some of our more sensitive members (you know who you are).
Matt or Jess, you might want to nip this in the bud.
Could there be a customization option for Firefox users to have links open in a new tab?
