As someone who tends to open new links in a new tab and who ends up with a dozen or so open, I've always found those options to be very useful, especially the 'Close Tabs to the Right' one. I'm not sure why Google would want to get rid of them - the options hardly seem like a security risk or a burden on processor or RAM resources. I'll miss them if they do disappear.

Perhaps you know the answer to this: is it a misconception to think that GERD is caused by excess stomach acid? Isn't the problem that certain foods (primarily acidic food and carminitives) cause the LES to fail to close properly? Therefore tackling GERD either by neutralising acid or reducing its production is tackling the problem from the wrong end, as it were?

Of course Musk isn't going to start digging tunnels next month. I can scarcely begin to imagine how much work it involves to get permission, permits, acquire land, and the million-and-one other things you have to do before even breaking the sod.

What's gone wrong with this website? Someone please fix it.
