Edit: Closed as outdated – in the new browser ui the tabs screen is different, and this criticism doesn't apply anymore.

A small inconsistency in the browser ui ( When I'm in the tab selection screen with more than one tab open, I can tap on any tab thumbnail to open that tab – except the current tab (the top one): to open that, I have to pull right (or tap on the dots in the upper left corner).

I can understand the logic here (tap to change tab, or pull to navigate away from the tabs screen). And it's true that the current tab area has another tappable element (the url/search field). Still, it would make sense to me that I could activate the current tab just like any other tab: by tapping on it (on anywhere else than the url field or the close tab button).

I agree 100%. I needed a few weeks to understand this mechanism. And in the map application I did not until today! ;-)

The inconsistency is even greater if you have two open tabs and you close the current one. After that you can no longer activate the remaining tab by tapping on it (as you could have done just a second ago) and pull right now activates a completely different tab than before.
