Review: Tree Style Tab Firefox Extension
I have a history of being a major tab abuser in Firefox. I am always working on several personal, professional and academic projects and often my research for all three overlap and intersect while I explore online, piling up in my tabs toolbar. My friend Katie recently emailed to let me know about the Tree Tab Firefox extension - and as usual she proves that she really gets me.
The Tree Tab firefox extension takes your horizontal bookmarks and stacks them into a vertical left-hand pane, thus completely changing the way you use Firefox. I have been using it for a week or so now, and I think I have found my new favourite extension.
Things I like:
- When you click a link that opens in a new window or tab, it automatically opens up as a “sub” item in the tree.
- Groups of tabs can be expanded or collapsed.
- The sidebar can be vertically to the left as in the image, or placed on the bottom or top horizontally.
- The sidebar can auto-hide.
- Tabs can be clicked and dragged for desired placement.
- No more looking up and being overwhelmed by my other toolbars when navigating tabs.
- Easy to keep multiple projects organized at once.
- Easy to delete and sort tabs.
But don’t take my word for it, give it a shot!
