Mozilla Firefox (download for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, or the Portable App) didn't invent tabbed browsing, but they sure as heck perfected it, or at least the extended network of extensions developers did. If Firefox doesn't include a tabbed-browsing feature you want, there's a good chance you can find one among its numerous add-ons.

Especially in the aftermath of Facebook's recent debut of Graph Search.
And you would have been wrong.
Social networking wasn't on the agenda today as a talking point as management spent more than an hour yakking about nearly every aspect of the company's business -- with the exception of Google+.
