Is it possible somehow to revert back to the old browsing habits, i.e. no tabs in Chrome or Firefox?

I stumbled the web but I cannot find the answer to this question.

Umm, just don't use tabs? Open things in new windows. Don't see why you would want to of course but its up to you. –  terdon Sep 27 '13 at 14:52
    
@terdon when I work I have at most 3 windows opened per desktop (I use Dexpot) and simply the tab bar is occupying too much space taken in the account the taskbar is nearly empty ;-) –  laika Sep 27 '13 at 14:57
    
So you want to disable the tab bar, not tabbed browsing? –  terdon Sep 27 '13 at 15:00
    
@techie007 Yes, I have to admit my question is a duplicate. –  laika Sep 27 '13 at 15:56
    
@laika No worries, that's the way it goes. :) –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Sep 27 '13 at 15:58

There's no native option in Chrome or Firefox to turn tabs off, but you can find Extensions or addons to have a workaround feature.

Hiding Tab Bar in Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/hide-tab-bar-with-one-tab/

A few quick searches didn't turn much up for chrome extensions that has something similar, but it's likely there is something out there.

If what you want is to hide the tab bar, you can do it with the TabMixPlus firefox add-on:
