Maximizing Firefox’s tab-efficiency

There are a lot of add-ons for Firefox out there in the cyber world. And I mean a ton. Today, I’m going to just briefly mention two that anyone who uses Firefox frequently should have. I, myself, have been using these add-ons for about a month now, and I can’t remember using Firefox without them.

The first add-on is called “permatabs”, an incredibly useful utility made by developer David Morrison. Basically, permatabs allows you to, you guessed it, permanently store tabs! This means that you can’t accidentally close a tab, and the tab will automatically be there if you close and reopen firefox later. They are kept in the normal tab bar, but have a different, brownish color. The cool thing about these permatabs is that they don’t actually load until you click on them. So that means they won’t slow down load time when you open firefox for the first time in a session.

The second add-on is called “faviconize” and it basically just allows you to make tabs smaller. It gets rid of the title of the web tab and replaces it with only the sites tab logo, so you can still tell what site it is. Combined with permatabs, it allows you to have permanently open tabs that are out of the way and don’t take up much room! Trust me, it cleans up your firefox UI quite a bit!
