I really like browser tabs, but I wish… November 15, 2006Posted by Matsu in Information Technology, Microsoft, Open Source, Software, Technology, Web, Windows/Microsoft.
You can hardly find a current version of a web browser today that doesn’t support tabs. And, for the most part I’m glad they have become a standard feature. But, I really do wish that there was a way to see, in one list, all of the tabs in all of the windows like there is with the list of windows (in the menu bar).
I tend to open about ten (or more) tabs per window. So, when I go looking for that web site I was reading earlier that I know I left open in one of the tabs in one of the windows I end up going through each browser window and then looking at each tab to see if I can find it. But, if the list of windows in the menu bar under the Window menu would list not just the contents of the active tab in each window but also list all of the tabs in each browser window, then I would easily find what I’m looking for and go straight to it.
No, I did not know there was a way to do that in Safari, or Firefox, or Internet Explorer, or name your browser. So, please tell me! Otherwise, can someone please write a Firefox extension that will do what I need?
