Tab Candy: They're (poorly) reinventing the Wheel
It's a fact, more and more applications are web-based, and the tabbed browsing shows its limits. Tabs are now like real applications and need to be managed more precisely and with less hassle. That's why the firefox folks created Tab Candy.
This is stupid. There are tons of good window managers out there. Why do anybody need to spend time on reinventing one, which won't be as good as existing ones, in addition to create a strong separation between web apps and the regular ones ?
If you want to have several groups of tabs, use several windows. If you want to have a quick access to a web app, give it its own window (with uzbl or jumanji for instance). This way, all your applications (web or regular) behave consistently, and you can use the full power of your WM instead of beeing forced to use a stoneage WM inside your browser.
