Can somebody please explain to me why since a while web browsers have to defy GUI 
It's bad enough that Rekonq doesn't have an optional menu bar. If in 0.7 tabs are moved to 
somewhere else than below the toolbar, I'll quit using Rekonq. I want a coherent GUI 
throughout my workspace and if some GTK-based browser ends up with a GUI that follows the 
KDE HIGs closer than a KDE app, I'll use that one.

If you want tabs on top, use KWin's tabbing feature or use Chrome.

You wanted our opinions. That's mine.
