"Considered harmful" considered not good

Oh dear. I don't know whether to be happy or unhappy about this: Tabbed Browsing Considered Harmful is within the top 100 (out of 4,800) Google results for the query intitle:"considered harmful".

Not happy because I discovered this fact having just read Eric Meyer's "Considered Harmful" Essays Considered Harmful and found myself largely in agreement.

(I actually have some more to say on the subject of tabbed-browsing, including -- *gasp* -- a good point about it, but I'm rather reluctant to say anything because it's really not much fun being most famous for being the UI-Nazi who wants to eliminate tabbed browsing. I'd like to be famous for doing something a bit more constructive.)
