I've been wanting this for a while now, but I have a few problems with it. I like that I can fit the width to the title, but there should be a maximum width for those sites with long titles. Also, the width should fit to the window when there are too many tabs instead of just running out of room. I know there is a scroll bar but I don't like that. I guess I'm being a bit picky, but I think it would be a lot better with these additions.

You can probably put a tab { max-width: 300px; } or something in userChrome.css

Ok, maybe I don't understand what it is you really want.
