- by NC, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Probably one of the most under-appreciated (by public rating) Extensions on the entire Firefox Add-ons site. This Extension is one of the most powerful Add-ons any Firefox customization hacker could hope for. Unfortunately for them the source of that power is also the likely cause for the low rating, using its best features (hotkey initiated custom JS) requires extensive developer knowledge and testing time. Couple that with the incredibly unfriendly tiny UI Window (with hidden Save Button) and it is no wonder new users find difficulty & rate it low.
It seems like the "Run custom JS" feature is treated as an afterthought, but I wish the devs would extend it, for example: JQuery support; custom CSS/HTML/DOM; pass dynamic parameters to commands (ie: use JS to find a particular anchor or img.src then go to it in a new tab); Download/Save a resource by URL (option to bypass save-as dialog); would be awesome to be able to call a particular context menu item of an object on the page;
Currently I am using multiple add-ons to do most of what I need, but as I mentioned even without those dream features this is by far one of my favorite extensions available. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for those that know how to code.
- by Ioachim S, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Conclusion: This is a great extension that I've been using with Chrome for 5 years already. However, Chrome is becoming a google pest so I moved on to Firefox. I realize that it is not possible to set a shortcut to send the current tab to the OneTab well. This renders this extension absolutely useless and will be uninstalling it now and will try again later time to see if this is possible.
The actual experience: I have a hard time understanding how others use this extension. I click the one tab icon, and wow, all my tabs are sent all to OneTab. What the... This is bad UX or I am too old. Ok, lets repeat the sequence. I have 26 tabs open out of which I want to keep only 4 open. I select a tab to be sent to OneTab, right click the one tab icon, go to OneTab submenu and select 'Send only this tab to OneTab' and repeat this action 24 times manually. Ok, this took 2 minutes and I am tired and irritated that I had to do this, this is just bad UX.

- by no_traps, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5A great addon that is a bit crippled on Firefox, sadly, due to browser limitations. I was hoping it could make up for Firefox' lack of shortcuts for internal pages.
E: seems the last update made the interface fit the Options tab better. Great stuff.
