I don't mind the pull tabs. I rather like them on the cans of heat'n'eat stuff like ravioli and chunky soups. I can take them or leave them on the cream of soups I use in recipes. I like pumps on my hand soaps and lotions. Habit from working in the hospital!

I think that a lot of tops -- pumps and sprays -- are specifically designed so that you have to throw away the last couple of ounces of cleaning products. I find the pull tabs on soups and other goods a nice convenience. Out of curiousity (never tried it), can't you still use a can opener on them if you are a person who really wants to use a can opener?

By the way, although it is not really connected, I hope you all know that when you order your prescriptions, you can tell your pharmacist that there are no children in your home and you want arthritis-friendly packaging for your prescriptions. Ditto your vet for your best friends' prescriptions.
