Crazy Browser (An MSIE front end for Windows) has an interesting tabbed browsing
feature that stacks tabs on top of each other when the titles get long.
Currently Mozilla has tabs side by side, which can be diffcult to read after
more than eight are used. I read a comment on Slashdot which echoed this gripe.
Crazy Browser has this feature disabled. If Mozilla adopts this feature, we
should follow this course. I also suggest that this feature should be used only
when the user has 12 tabs open. Attached are photos of Crazy Browser's stacked
browsing and Mozilla's current tabbed browsing.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mozilla
2. Open 12 tabs.
3. Try to make out titles of tabs.
Actual Results:  
I was unable to read titles of tabs.

Expected Results:  
Tabs should have been stacked or layered instead of side by side. Titles of tabs
would have been readable.

I am only Windows Me with 233 Mhz P3 processor and 64 MB of RAM.

Crazy Browser's stacked tabbed browsing

With stacked tabbed browsing, tab titles are easy to read.

Moz's current tabbed browsing

Mozilla's tabbed browsing after 12 tabs. Notice how this makes tabs hard to
read and in some ways, a pain to use.

This is a dupe of bug 155325. If someone would be so kind as to mark it such.
