Today I was working on a new module and I noticed this in the google code:

.tabspacer {width:4px; border-bottom:1px solid #97acd4; }
.tab {padding:2px 15px 2px 15px; font-size:82%; text-align:center; text-decoration:none; color:#676767; cursor:pointer; cursor:hand; }
.selectedtab {border:1px solid #97acd4; color:#3366cc; border-bottom:0px; color:#3366cc; font-weight:bold; }
.unselectedtab {border:1px solid #97acd4; background-color:#e5ecf9; color:#000000; border-bottom-color:#97acd4; }
.tab_hover {background-color: #aaaaaa; color: #ffffff; }
.edittab {padding-right:2px; padding-left:2px; }
.addatab {padding:2px 2px 2px 7px; border-bottom:1px solid #97acd4; font-size:83%; text-align:left; }
.addatab a {color:#7777cc; }
.tabtitle {font-weight:bold; color:#3366cc; }
#footer_promos {border-top:1px solid #97acd4; padding-top:10px; }
#addcontent_button {font-weight:bold; font-size:16px; padding:2px 10px 2px 10px; color:#ffffff; background-color:#3366cc; }
#tabs {padding-bottom:9px; }

with Google releasing collapsable modules today, I'm thinking tabs are not too far behind. Two of my most popular modules are now integrated features in the homepage. I'd like to think I had something to do with it. :-)

also, I checked the javascript, there are functions named:

_renameTab
_editTab

as well as another that seems initialize the page to work with tabs. I don't think there is a way to make the thing work yet, because no extra HTML has been outputted on the page for the functions to work with.

could we work out what they'll look like from the css code?

Does anyone else want them to make a horizontal modules across the 3 vertical columns? This would be great for the bookmarks module...having all your bookmarks right under the search bar and horizontally displayed like googles own services are above the search bar.
