Looking for a Firefox tab extension that does a little ‘bit of everything? Look no further than Tab Utilities.
This add-on for Firefox really is your proverbial utility knife when it comes to controlling, editing or optimizing your browser tabs for better performance.
Sometimes we all go a little tab-happy when it comes to our Internet browsing ways. You might be browsing around, one lazy Friday afternoon, and before you know it – you have twenty open tabs and then decide, "hey, maybe I should get back to work!". Well, have no fear, because I can get all your tabs closed in one click or two.
Rather than hunting down the X to close your current tab, what if all you had to do was wish upon a star, and then right click anywhere on the tab you wish to shut down? I will let you know how to get that done, without the need of the “wishing upon a star” part.
There are many extensions out there that allow you to tweak your tabs, however not many will let you close multiple tabs all in one swift movement. The Multiple Tab Handler extension for Firefox does that and a lot more.
The idea here is simple, to provide the user with any easier way to handle multiple tabs at once. This is so you can highlight more than one tab, then reload them, close them and so on. Once the Multiple Tab Handler add-on is installed, when you press the mouse button and drag over tabs (you should wait a while to start drag after you press down the button!), they are selected. After you release the button, the popup to choose command will be shown.
Multiple tabs can be dragged and moved if you select multiple tabs by Ctrl-click or Shift-click before you start to drag. Once you have selected the tabs you want to work with, here are some of the actions you can take:
- Close selected tabs
- Close not-selected tabs
- Reload selected tabs
- Duplicate selected tabs
- Move selected tabs to a new window
- Bookmark selected tabs
For those of us who move backwards and forwards through multiple tabs all day long, this extension for Firefox is well worth downloading. You can pickup the Multiple Tab Handler add-on for Firefox on the Firefox Add-ons site.
