Tab optimisation in Firefox

There are a couple of Firefox extensions I’ve recently stumbled upon which, when used together, are quite beautiful. They’re both to do with the tabs at the top of the browser.

The first is called PermaTabs. Basically, it makes any tab(s) that you choose permanent. So you can’t close the tabs by accident, and new pages can’t load in their place.

The second is called FaviconizeTab. This allows you to reduce the width of any tabs to the width of the favicon.

Combined, the two extensions are neat. They allow you to keep all of your "always open" pages safely on the left-hand side of the tab bar, while ensuring that they don’t waste unnecessary page width.


Like so! Now my email, meebo and calendar are always there and handy.
