I am trying to download the installer from a link for the new Swype Beta, but I get message "Can't open a new tab until you close one." I tried to shut down and restart the phone to clear memory, but I still get the same message. To my knowledge, I did not open any tabs.
Thanks for your assistance!

There is no "Three dot" menu on the home screen - how do I get "menu"? If I open the "4x4" dots in the tray to open the list of installed apps and then tap the three dots to get menu, the list is sort, share, manage apps and edit tabs. When I tap edit tabs, the message is "press and hold icons to rearrange." How do I find the "open tabs?"
Thanks for all the input. My problem in trying to find the tab button was that I usually do not use the "stock browser" (labelled 'Internet'). When I opened the stock browser, there it was! All OK now!

Not a fan of this "feature" that leaves tabs open for stuff I looked at days ago. I wish there was a setting to close all tabs when I close the browser.
This and I wish the browser would simply delete the oldest tab when it comes to the limit. I cannot stand this error message that constantly pops up when chances are I could care less about the first 3-4 tabs currently open since it could have been days ago that I opened them. They need to add an option within the settings to allow it to replace oldest tab with the new tab when the limit is reached. Seems like a HUGE oversight for what is normally a great browser option.
I second that. I installed Boat a couple of days ago just to check it out. I knew within minutes that I wouldn't be going back to the stock browser, or even Chrome Beta. What a hidden gem - you never see it mentioned in the ubiquitous "what browser are you using" threads.

Good call on Boat, guys. I just downloaded it and like kbp08tls immediately saw that it would probably be a keeper even over Chrome. Even without ICS compliance yet, it seems superior to the stock browser and Chrome. Without the dedicated search button, having one right on the url bar is very helpful. Even Chrome doesn't get that right, and the bottom bar is very useful.
While surfing the web I've noticed that sometimes that I open a new tab. I back out and close the browser and go back in another time to find that there may at times be 1 or 2 open tabs. Is there any way to completely close the tabs ? Seems crazy to me that there's always my last surf spot there.
