comment Tabbed browsing. Why close the application on closing the last tab?
Agreed, I was surprised by this behavior. Often, I just want to close all my tabs and start researching something new. This means I have to keep that last pesky tab open till I've added a new tab. In its defense, it is a very learn-able behavior.

comment How exactly does good usability cut development time?
I concede that if you factor in maintenance, etc throughout the whole life-cycle of the product, there would be savings. Initially it would take more development time (which was what I was trying to get at)

:) yes, true. It was a cheap shot at IE (Opera had it since 2000)

In our case there is a tree-view like menu on the right (smallish links) and some larger tabs at the top, that would navigate to the same functionality. I reckon in this case it is "good" duplication.
