Comment: Slashdot Beta is back? (Score 1) 36

I was just pushed to Slashdot Beta. Truthfully, this is the first time I've taken a hard look at it. After some time giving it a real chance, I've decided the comment section is the most troublesome (still?) with the lack of truncated comments and abysmal contrast between the background and the separation delineations.

Those who modded this poster as a troll have no clue what the poster is doing. They are pointing out that the headline of the article is a LEADING QUESTION, and pigeonholes the reader into a false scenario. The poster simply says they reject the premise that they are a cyborg at all.

The tab bar, when only one tab is open, is completely superfluous. It takes up tons of screen real-estate in the process.

One tab open (hidden tab bar):

Multiple tabs open (visible tab bar):

It caused minor issues with some new theme they are pushing out. As if I use their themes anyway. Here is what my Firefox layout looks like.
Simple, clean, minimalistic. And now I have to deal with a tab bar because it messes up their pretty little theme? Fuck you Mozilla.

Here's one example. The browser.tabs.autoHide functionality has been completely stripped. You can no longer hide the tab bar. There was an explosion of posts about it today, so I'm not the only one crying over the loss of this feature.
