Why was Search Tab created?

I am a student/developer. I always used to open 50 tabs for using documentations, code snippets, tutorials, notes, mail, music, etc all at the same time and then checking the mail tab or going to the mozilla dashboard or going to javascript-tutorial page is a pain. Even if I know that I have a gmail tab opened somewhere, I had to open it again to avoid searching thus increasing the tabs and hence making manual search even more difficult.

This addon, which I initially developed for myself and I didn't have plans to make it public, was extremely useful for me. When some of my friends saw it, they asked for it and I mailed the add-on to about 50 people who appreciated it a lot. So, for the general mozilla community, I made the code clean and professional to put it on AMO.

What's next for Search Tab

New version has been put, though not nominated public till now. This version is a dramatically improved version in terms of screen space and user experience.
