Sorry, but I much prefer the current style.
It seems cleaner to me.

In comparison with the current style, to my mind the proposed style
has the following disadvantages:
- it's not immediately obvious which tab is selected
- "Add a tab" only works for members and does not actually add a tab
each time it is used.
- not as easy to read the tab text as it fills the space
- not as easy to read the tab contents as the contrast is reduced
- tab shapes are not as nice as before
- the surrounding dark background is distracting
- the back to top links don't take one back to the top
- the footer contents are always visible (or would be, if an alignment
bug were fixed) so it's always obvious whom to contact

The improvements:
- the page footer is not obscured by the scroll box (that should be fixable)
- it's possibly slightly easier to scroll the whole page rather than
scrolling within the box. But this does mean the footer is not always

I'd much rather see the few minor issues with the current layout fixed.
