Improving Tabbed Browsing in Firefox

Ben Goodger reports on some usability research Google conducted regarding tabbed browsing in Firefox. His first suggested change is something Safari has done all along: include a “close this tab” button in each tab. I’m surprised they needed a usability test to figure out that Firefox’s current model of using just one “close this tab” button per window is sub-optimal.

Side question: Does anyone not believe that Google is working on a Google-branded derivative of Firefox?
