Don't want to start a flamewar, but the animation on switching tabs is
just too much IMHO. With oxygen, when I switch from one tab to another I
actually need to wait for the animation to finish before I can properly use
the content of the new tab. Thats just not right. Luckily not all styles
want to be fancy, some are there for everyday work ;P
