Switching to Tab Mix Plus

tabmixplus.jpgI've replaced my Firefox SessionSaver plugin with TabMixPlus. SessionSaver was a lifesaver many a time, especially when I have about 20 tabs open with articles I haven't read, blogged, or bookmarked yet. The main problem with SessionSaver that it apparently has a memory leak. That's a sin I can forgive as long as it's the only game in town, but now TabMixPlus has come along with all of SessionSaver's tab-saving functionality plus:

  • tab reordering
  • a close button on every tab
  • the option to change ctrl-tab to cycle through most recently used tabs instead
  • reopen that tab you didn't mean to close
  • fiddle around with link opening, tab closing, and other tab behaviors
  • claims to not have the same memory leak as SessionSaver
  • loading bars on individual tabs
  • unread tabs marked in read

TabMixPlus is essentially a variety of tab-related plugins (SessionSaver, UndoCloseTab, etc...) all rolled into one. I've used it for several days and have liked what it has to offer, though the huge set of functionality does make it more complicated and you'll probably have to fiddle around with some configuration menus that are almost as long as all of Firefox's.

I'm pleased with TabMixPlus too -- I've been using it for the last couple of weeks.
