NiceThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.9).

its really cool and looks awesome
but i dunno why the tab grid (F4 thing) with my theme doesn't show the contents only blank boxes
although ctrl-tab works brilliantly and thats why i added it.....

i like it but it doesn't work properly for me i don't know why when i press shift-cntrl-tab and f4 which is why i added it :(:(This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.9).
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
It might be a nice extension for some people but I really hope it stays like that. No need to integrate this when you can see the full content while using already CTRL-TAB as another user properly pointed out at another place.
At least make it optional.

quite a good tool, works across open windows and tabsThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.5).
Decent... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I love the concept, unfortunately the major issue I saw with it is that the thumbnail previews are not updating correctly for me (I am using firefox 3 on Linux), if you use ctrl+tab once and then change what website is on a tab, it doesn't change the thumbnail right away, which makes it really hard to tell what one is what, if this really gets integrated to FF 3.1 I really hope this gets fixedThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.5).

The height of the tab bar increases by 3 times after the installation of this plug-in (probably because of some settings set by an already-uninstalled Tab Mix Plus), and the tab dropdown arrow is displayed 4 times.
Have to give it a 2 stars because of lost screen real estate.
Functionally nice, but doesn't look as advertised Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Ctrl-tab is fast and responsive on my FF3/Ubuntu Hardy setup, but it doesn't look anything like it does in the screenshots.
Additionally, preferences is greyed out. Presumably the styling of the overlay is handled by CSS, so even some instructions on how to edit it would be probably be enough for most Ubuntu (*nix) users.
Really nice, regardless. I give it four stars out of five and strongly recommend using it. I've been a fan of design-noir.com (and Dao's work) for a while now and it seems to me that this extension will only get better as time goes by.
Uninstalled in 3 seconds Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I only had a few tabs open, but I decided to try this one out. It showed my tabs in a neat bar, but "wrapped" them so I couldn't tell which was first and which was last. Spatial navigation is important for me, so this makes it less useful.
No options to change any behavior, so I uninstalled it. I was looking for something that would display every page in a grid of sorts that I could navigate through. The "wrapping" and no options means it's not really worth it for me right now.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Wow...really nice and smooth and sleek. the only thing is I have to keep reminding myself to use it as I have been so long without anything like this so I have my usual ways of going through the tabs. I am going to make sure I do get used to it though cos this is one GREAT addon.
Brilliant idea and very well executed mate.!
Good; could use improvement Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This extension is OK. There are a few things that should change:
(option for) more then three 'tabs' on the ctrl+tab 'bar' (edit: I realize there is an option, but it's hidden)
(option for) favicon removed, or made default size and not angled
(option for) PNG thumbnail previews (I can tell they are JPEG just because of the horrible quality and 'noise')
crtl-tab has to go in order of tabs - it really bugs me that it doesn't
If these four things changed, I would give this extension 5 stars.
However, I love the concept and idea of the extension. The grid idea is terrific.
Also, you should be able to hover and click on items on the bar, but this isn't a big deal.
Good job! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very nice! Works like a charm for me.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17).
Almost Great ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Well mostly i like it. The Graphical touch reminds you of Apple and it looks really well. Functionality is proper and simple.
Except for the text above tabs when you're scrolling in that little window, at least I believe its ugly..
Is it possible to remove the text in any way? ;P
Good but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
First of all, I quite like this extension. It's very similar to Ctrl Tab Preview (which is not available for FF3), though with some added features, and some missing.
I agree with the previous review that, as it's supposed to provide Windows' ALT+TAB like behaviour, it should cycle in recent order. Though I would dearly like to have an option to have Ctrl Tab cycle in tab order (i.e. an option not to change the tab order).
The F4 expose style feature is great, and even with loads of tabs open (like 100), it's still more responsive than foxpose (and another alike extension i had tried a while back) with way less tabs open. There's one issue with it though: when you have too many open tabs to fit in the pop up screen, there's no scroll bar appearing, so you can't access the late ones with it.
Additionally, on the other hand, the Ctrl Tab preview is utterly unresponsive on my side, and this even with a handful of tabs open (less than 5), which makes it completely unusable. Thus, an option to only enable the "F4" expose, and disable the ctrl tab preview, would be very welcome (and be able to activate separately the preview part of the tab switching and the order change).
If it is of any help, I'm using FF3.0 on Archlinux (binary package straight from Mozilla installed through AUR, British version)
Finally! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
As a power Windows use, I have Alt-Tab ingrained into my fingertips. And Firefox's tab cylcing always threw me off. Now with the handy add-in, I can cycle between the two most recently used tabs. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
One request for the next version...could you make it so the tabs highlight a bit when cycling through? That would be awesome.
Needs customizability Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This extension has some awesome features, but it needs to be possible to choose which ones to actually use. I love the All Tabs panel, but I really don't want to use MRU tab switching.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.16.3).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very nice - does exactly what it says it does - navigates the open tabs in MRU fashion instead of the icky default left-to-right. And it does it with a very nice graphical presentation of titles, previews, and icons.
Any chance of detecting tab-close events and focusing the MRU tab there too? I realize that's a little out of scope of Ctrl-Tab, but it doesn't hurt to ask!
Thanks for a useful tool!
Looks SO COOL! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This extension looks like it would be amazing, but it doesn't work for me when I press "ctrl+tab". Using FF3.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.16.3).
