Nice addon! Is there any alternative instead of flash? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great way to view tabs! My question:

I noticed that this addon uses Adobe Flash. Flash is well known as a memory hog and has potential security flaws. So my question is: Is there any open source alternative which you could perhaps use instead of flash? or would that be too much work? Please reply!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1).

Hi ff@n,
Thank you for your review.
FoxTab, is indeed using Adobe Flash for its functionality.
Flash Player may, in certain situations, be misused and use a lot of memory.
However, it provides developers with functionality that otherwise is very difficult to achieve.
FoxTab was designed carefully to use most of its required memory only when used, and to use only a small footprint while in idle.
At the moment, our effort is to improve FoxTab on top of Flash rather switching the underlying platform
Thank you again for your insight.
