Tabtastic Banshee

By outrageous amounts of popular demand (and feature pressure from Totem), we are pleased to announce tab support in Banshee! You can open your Music Library in one tab, your yummy Apple device in another, and be watching a video in another, all at the same time! Banshee with new tabs and iPhone 3G support (j/k...) I'm really excited about this new direction that GNOME is taking. I can't wait for tab support in Gnometris.

  1. Vertical labels on a GNOME application.

  2. lalalalalalalalala... this is a joke.. this has got to be a joke.. for the love of Einstein let this be a joke otherwise the only explaination has to be that GNOME is collectively aiming for a Darwin Award.

  3. I can't understand why would I want tab support in totem... I can't think of a proper use case.

  4. I agree. Totem and Banshee are programs where I cannot see the benefit of tabs. Also saw that gnome-calculator had acquired tab-support and thought to myself "why?".

    Tabs are the new black or what? Or so someone seem to think.

  5. Gnome seems to be what I need, but I won't make the switch before the eog file chooser has tab support! How hard can it be?

  9. Joke or no joke, vertical tabs are horrible. That's the primary reason I hate amarok.

  10. That is HORRIBLE, just plain AWFUL! You absolutely ruined the application (as did Totem folks earlier)!

    The device should be in the tree under last.fm. Those tabs make the ui harder to use (takes more clicks to use + you have to sometimes remember what is visible in the other tab), and harder to grasp (too many moving parts and elements in the UI).

    This is literally a NIGHTWARE, thhe usability of Gnome applications (Totem, Nautilus, etc) being plain slaughtered within a few days :-(

    I seriously wish they removed the whole tab widget from GTK+ to prevent this sort of bullshit from happening.

  12. I like horizontab tabs, but I hate vertical as is a bit hard read in vertical

    I think that you should reconsider add vertical tabs. Thanks

  13. Are you sure that adding tabs simply for splitting Music Library from iPod is really needed? :-/

    If you go forward I expect that user are able to disable it if they want from preferences... Thanks

  14. Aren't there more important things than adding tabs?

    think!!

  15. please, no vertical tabs. Rotated text looks hideous!

  16. Oh my neck, ahhhh! So painful! Please no more vertical tabs! Tabs are a good idea in many applications, but those vertical tabs, that's one of things I don't really like in KDE, but now in Gnome too? Please...

  17. Heh, thanks for all the comments, many of them are as funny as I'd hoped this post would be. This post was definitely a joke (no code was harmed).

  18. tabs = yum remove banshee

  19. Sucks balls.
    Come on guys! Has the GNOME community fallen so low that the only innovation space left is TABS?
    They exist since the beginning of ages, they're really useful in a web browser, but anywhere else?
    Crap.

    I wish GNOME wasn't becoming so KDE-ish.

  20. Vertical tabs aren't so bad, you just need to have /more/ of them, on *both* sides. That way tilt your head occasionally to one side and also the other and it helps prevent neck cramp!
