I don't know if Mozilla Firefox counts as "commercial"
but it's not proprietary like Opera, and you can
"Bookmark all tabs" from the Add Bookmark item in
the Bookmarks menu.

What did your distribution set up for you? Better to
go with what they give you unless you really want to
be a printer tweaking expert.

Works fine for local oggs though and has a cleaner
