I guess I'm the only one using tab groups. They are so good though. I'm tired of companies just ditching good ideas that they failed to promote.

Numbers are all that ever matter anymore.

I use them all the time. It's faster and creates less clutter. I have 4 tab groups I keep open all the time. It's faster to keep pages I frequent open in tab groups and switch to them when needed rather than open a bunch of bookmarked pages in the current window every time I want to get to them.

This is a stupid move by Mozilla. This used to be an addon which they took over and incorporated into the browser, now they're killing it off. They keep removing features I like, so I'm beginning to wonder why I stick with their browser.

Seriously? I've never even heard of them once.

Edit: So I looked them up and they've sold seven million songs over 15 years. There last album sold 135k copies over a period of several years. The guy only has 47k Twitter followers. So yeah, they're really not a big deal. This isn't like U2 or Adele or someone huge. They're a C level band.

Not particularly a Breaking Benjamin fan, but I've heard of them not even being into their music...

And about your figures, not counting singles, their first four albums, hit gold, platinum, platinum and gold in the US alone. That's 3 million album sales there alone. After which apparently they went inactive. Came back and released a new album in June of this year, which has sold 135,000 album sales in its first week (not several years), and has proceeded to sell 270,000 copies in the US to date.

Seven million units in the US alone, which in retail sales terms is almost completely albums (especially in the US where singles sales are low). Two RIAA platinum albums (which require sales of over 1,000,000 units in the US).

Granted, they're not as big of a band as they were ten years ago, but anymore 135K albums is pretty sizable (seeing as people don't buy many albums at retail anymore) - keep in mind that in the US the threshold for a top-ten-selling album in a year is around a million copies these days. (Also, Wikipedia mentions that 135K number was in the first week of release - that's a #1 album. They're at just shy of 300K in the US alone now with it, and that's after a hiatus and reshuffling of every member other than the lead singer.)

Also, using Adele and U2 as comparison points is being deliberately disingenuous, seeing as they are two of the top three selling acts in the world right now (along with Taylor Swift). The drop off between them and literally anyone else in album sales and concert revenues is massive (well, with the exception of Katy Perry on the live front). I'm beginning to think that not only are you trolling, but you're not very good at it, either. Three minutes of Googling can demolish everything you've written on this topic.

Fuck you I'm trolling. It's a completely valid comparison. Ask anyone on the street tomorrow if they've heard of Adele or US, then ask if they've heard of Breaking Benjamin. I'll bet you any amount of money you could ask a 1000 people before you meet someone who's heard of them. And another several thousand more before anyone would actually know anything about them or their music.

They were a pretty popular band. I'm 30, my peers know who Breaking Benjamin is and I'm sure that ranges at least 5 years above and below. It's not my type of music either so it's not like that's how I know of them. Face it Cutter, you're getting so old that you don't even know about things that are also considered old these days.
