Save your tabs and Panorama tab groups in Firefox 4

When Firefox 4's tab grouping tool, Panorama, had its keyboard shortcut changed to the finger-breaking combo of Ctrl+Shift+E, we thought Panorama would get dropped before FF4's final release -- but, thankfully, it made the cut! If you've used Firefox 4 and Panorama, you might have noticed that Mozilla's new browser doesn't always save your tab groupings when you close the browser -- a bit of...

Complete Browser for webOS offers tabs, private browsing

If you use a webOS smartphone and want a more desktop-like browsing experience, head to the App Catalog and check out Complete Browser. The app builds on the default webOS browser core and provides a handful of useful additional features like tabbed browsing, a private browsing mode, and easy access to clearing browsing data. There's also an anonymized Google search option built in. The tabs gi...

Internet Explorer 9 RC to have "show tabs below address bar" option

Microsoft knows who uses Internet Explorer -- and understands that those people aren't always keen on big changes. Internet Explorer 9's updated interface could come as quite a shock to some users, with its compact address bar and in-line tabs. It seems, however, that Microsoft will add in an optional switch to impart a more IE8-style appearance. The Internet Explorer 9 RC build is set to intr...

Firefox 4 may be getting tabs in title bar option

So much for Firefox 4 already being feature-frozen! It now looks as though several additional changes may land before the final release of Firefox 4 lands in early 2011. Among them: tabs in the title bar. As with Google Chrome, your tabs will only move to the topmost area of the window when maximized. The feature has yet to be delivered to the Firefox 4 nightly builds, but you can download exp...

Sleipnir Web browser for iOS brings tabbed browsing, bookmark sync

If you're on the hunt for a Web browser for your iPhone or iPad with a few additional features, Fenrir -- the company that develops the Sleipnir browser for Windows -- has its first mobile version for iOS [App Store link]. Sleipnir's most interesting feature is its rich tabbed browsing support. In addition to a thumbnailed tab strip along the bottom edge of the browser window (which only displ...

Panelize fixes one of Chrome OS's fundamental flaws

If you haven't played with Chrome OS yet, it has one fundamental niggle that harkens back to the DOS days of yore: windows don't exist, and it has no way of displaying multiple tabs on screen at the same time. This means if you want to refer to a document while you compose an email, you need to repetitively switch between tabs -- and I think we can all agree that tab-switching is one of the most ...

Your guide to Firefox 4 and its shiny new features

Firefox 4, with the release of Beta 7, is as good as finished. From now until its release in early 2011, no new features will be added, no significant changes will be made -- Beta 7 is, for all intents and purposes, Firefox 4. Unlike Firefox 3.5 (private browsing) and 3.6 (personas!!), version 4 has a significant number of new in-your-face features -- features that will take a little getting u...

Search your Google Chrome tabs with Spot

I don't typically browse with more than a handful of open tabs, but every now and then I wind up with a vast forest of them. When that happens, it's easy to lose that one tab you're actually looking for. No worries, however, with the Spot extension for Google Chrome. Just click the magnifying glass icon and start typing something you remember about the page and Spot quickly returns a list of m...

The Future of the Web: How Firefox Panorama and Aza Raskin will shape the Web

When I visited the Mozilla offices in Mountain View, California, I met with three very important Mozillans. Aza Raskin, Creative Lead of Firefox; Vladimir Vukićević, Principal Engineer of Firefox; and Nick Nguyen, Mozilla's Director of Add-ons. Together, they form the spearhead that drives both the creative vision and development of Firefox, a browser that's now used by over 400 million users. ...

Firefox 4 startup gets faster

Firefox 4 shutdown is already almost instant, but Mozilla has had their sights set on faster start-up times for quite a while. Over the summer, a pair of Mozilla interns looked at simple tweaks which would make Firefox appear faster. It now looks as if at least one of the suggested changes will make its way in to Firefox 4. Thanks to what Mozilla is calling Cascaded Session Restore, the Firefo...

QuickShift for Google Chrome is a must-have extension for dual monitor setups

I haven't been using a dual-monitor setup for long, so I'm still figuring out how to work with all the extra pixels I now have at my disposal. Since I spend a good portion of my time working in a Web browser, and that browser happens to be Google Chrome, I think QuickShift is going to become one of my most-used extensions. What does QuickShift do? It allows you to move your current tab to a ...

Windows Phone 7 Web browser comparison versus iPhone and Android (video)

No, sadly it's not my video (whose accent do you prefer, incidentally? The squeaky American, or mine?) but still, it's a great early look at the browsing experience on Windows Phone 7. Lee really likes the tabs (those close buttons look fiddly though). I like the Metro UI, and the ability to add favourite pages to the Start screen. Froyo looks like a crusty donkey in comparison -- and iOS4 e...

Mozilla bolting Tab Candy on to Firefox 4 today

Aza Raskin's Tab Candy is one of the slickest additions to Firefox we've seen in quite some time -- you may remember Erez stating that it's going to revolutionize tabbed browsing. Mozilla's certainly excited about the project, and they had previously announced that it would be added to the Firefox 4 code at some point in the future. Today's the day, according to a tweet from Mozilla's Mike Bel...

TabSense brings some of Tab Candy's magic to Chrome

Tab Candy for Firefox isn't even officially out yet, and there's already a Chrome competitor; TabSense presents you with a list of your current browser tabs, divided by window. It gets points for effort, but at this stage, TabSense definitely feels half-baked. Clicking the name of a tab doesn't actually activate it, but it detaches it from its current group (window). Dragging tabs from group to g...

Tab Candy for Firefox goes alpha, revolutionizes tabbed browsing

Aza Raskin of Firefox fame has just announced one of the most amazing concepts I have seen for Web browsing in a long time: Tab Candy. Lee covered a slightly out-of date version on Monday, but now it's out for everyone to play with. It's a completely new concept of tab management: today, it's very easy to have too many tabs. I mean, 12-13 tabs is already "too many". Just try doing three or fou...
