When in doubt take both.
Make it up to end-user to choose where to have tab. Problem solved.

Perhaps I want mine on the left.

I want to put it in the left or in the right side!
With the displays that become wider and wider, I'll love to have the tabs steal some horizontal space instead of the rare vertical space.

I want to put my tabs on an excel sheet on another computer, and remote to it in order to access/switch them.

1:04-1:15 "But before we go on to the specific reasons I have to make it really, absolutely, perfectly, completely clear that what we're debating is the DEFAULT preference. As always - users have complete control over customizing Firefox, so it's exactly the way they like (...)"

Great video. The interface looks great. Is there really anymore debate about default settings? The last recap in the video gives 4 pros vs. 1 con. The one con is "mouse distance." Hahahaha. How lazy can you get?

I keep my parents on Firefox because of stability and security. I think my parent's will understand the concept of tabbing once this is the default layout for tabs.

I switched over to Google Chrome a few months ago simply because I drank their Koolaid. That and I love the integration with their Google products ie Docs, Calendar, Gmail, etc... Maybe Firefox 4.0 will win me back.

Either way, looking forward to the new version of Firefox. I was once swayed by Chrome but can't stand its disappointing way of blocking ads (of course, that's what Google's business is).

Personally, although I can see some positive features, I'd be pissed off not to be able to use the search toolbar as a global one. Actually, most of the times I use it it's not to search within the opened tab, but to open a new tab with the search.
If they put that toolbar within the tabs it's going to be counter-intuitive (assuming they still give me the opportunity to open a new tab with ALT+ENTER)

valid points, but I'll always prefer them to be on the bottom. If they want to improve efficiency, they need to get rid of the largely-empty caption/title bar so that the FF navigation interface and such takes up less vertical screen space. Sure, there are add-ons that do this for you, but it should be the default, or at least a built in option.

Alt-enter still works in Minefield (aka prerelease firefox) 4.0b2pre (I'm running a nightly build right now).
