    I used few times but after a while the contents were disappearing, didn’t had too much time to realize what exactly was wrong but I don’t find it as reliable. I would leave the classic tab switch to do it’s job. Enhancements can be done somewhere else ;)

    My friend tried it, and it just didn’t work. There was an error about insuficient memory, he was rather hazy with the details.

    I test programs extensively before reviewing them and it worked fine for me; however, this is not to say it will work fine for everyone.

    I’d contact the developers; they know a lot more about this software than I or anyone on this site does.

    Ah, I knew you tested it – I would have assumed that you wouldn’t have posted it if it didn’t work – I just didn’t know if you had any ideas about the problem.

    It looks like you’re either using a custom theme (not supported) or Vista (also no supported.)
