I’ve just been trying out Firefox’s Tab Candy, and I must say it could change the way you work on your browser.
I think it’s great. But a warning: it’s an alpha version (not even a beta); so it’s only for those of you who really want to see what’s in store and how it could radically change the way you use your browser tabs.
What Tab Candy does is to give you the flexibility to create groups of tabs on an empty workspace of your browser, so that you only need to open one group at a time in your browser, instead of opening an ever-increasing number of tabs. Each group of tabs can be given a name. You can also drag a tab to move it from one group to another. And then you can save the groups of tabs.
This video demo here will help to make it clear.
You can download ‘Minefield’ from the Mozilla site here.
As I said, this alpha release of Firefox is called ‘Minefield’ for a good reason: it is just a ‘pre-release’, not quite stable. So beware.
But so far it works for me.
