My friend just updated to 10.8 and she noticed that there is no more X to close tabs now. I have not installed 10.8 yet because I always wait untile 10.x.1 to come out to fix most glitches.



I did some research and came across this: "Anyone who has a nasty habit of having too many tabs open will love Safari's new Tab View. Pinch to zoom out and you'll see all of your tabs laid out horizontally; swipe with two fingers to move from one to the next, and click on the one you want to open or click on the X to close it. We'd like to see Apple add a two-finger swipe up to close tabs in this view."



But there is no way in **** Apple went and did that. And even right clicking on the tab and selecting close is illogical..

So where is the X to simply close a tab now.

Thanks for the info guys.
