Tab Candy For Firefox 2010-07-27 13:15:33

Tab Candy Will Eliminate Browser Clutter

You already know that I have a problem with browser tabs. They pretty much take over my life. Although I can try to organize my tabs by moving them horizontally along the browser bar, I still have to pan left and right to see them all. All of my tab mismanagement problems would go right out the window with this upcoming Firefox feature called Tab Candy. Built by a creative at Mozilla, Tab Candy is still in the early alpha stages of birth, but it looks quite promising to an all-day browser like me.

Tab Candy works because you can group your tabs together by content. Let's say you're searching for geeky party supplies. You've found a few items that you want to check out for later at various URLs, but you have to get back to work, and don't want to close the tab or add yet another bookmark to your already too-long list. Now, you'd have to leave your tabs open all day, but with Tab Candy, you could launch the feature with a little button on your browser, get a wide view of all your open tabs, then group them together by category (like in the image here) — say work, geeky party supplies, time wasters, etc. — without populating your entire browser bar. Want more details on how Tab Candy works? Check it out in action after the break.
