- Rated 3 out of 5by Solemn, a year agoWARNING: If you use large numbers of tabs this add-on will frequently destroy the organisational structure of the tabs you have sorted into different panels when closing and reopening a browser session, requiring you to potentially reorganise large numbers of tabs or close the affected browser windows and attempt to load a saved snapshot of them, wasting a lot of your time.
As other reviewers have already mentioned, this problem doesn't appear to be an issue if you only use small numbers of tabs.
I tried this add-on after being a long time 'Tree Tabs' user (which handles large numbers of tabs reliably) and was hoping Sidebery would be a potential replacement with more QoL features.
Unfortunately Sidebery's inability to reliably save and restore browser session tab structures with large numbers of tabs means I would not recommend this to anyone who browses with large numbers of tabs.
Hopefully this issue can be fixed as Sidebery has a lot of good things going in its favour (e.g. clean UI, snapshot save system, panel sorting, containers) however until this critical issue is fixed the user experience is frustrating and wastes their time.
- Rated 3 out of 5by serpenta, a year agoIt's great when it comes to keeping tabs neatly arranged on a smaller scale, however, it doesn't manage large numbers of tabs (500+) and containers (8) well, especially when combined with multiple windows. With multiple windows the containers become routinely reset (all tabs are moved to the default container) and the add-on confuses placement of some tabs. Pinned tabs become routinely unpinned and I have also lost the configuration of containers several times now, which is a shame because I loved using the simple automation and integration with firefox containers this add-on offers. It is in my opinion a perfect tabs manager when it comes to the features, hovewer the performance is lacking.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 13541191, a year agoBest Tree Tab Extension in between all of the stores (Chrome, Edge, Firefox)
Tried many Tree Tabs extensions, the Edge has a great native one, and this one is even better.
It has all the features you can think of and is very customizable; How much time did it take to create this master piece?
Besides having a tree like panel, it can do many things we use other addons for:
1-it can save the opened tabs as in a session manager
2-it can discard tabs as a tab suspender
3-it can group tabs in groups of tabs and also by containers
Why don't you make it block ads haha
Great app (y)
- Rated 5 out of 5by Mozzzzzzz, a year agoI'm a power user (1K+ tabs opened).
With lateral tabs and grouping, Sidebery changed my way of using the browser.
Probably it's the main reason because I stay with Firefox.
- Rated 5 out of 5by ohlordyitsordy, a year agoHands down the best tree tab extension. At one point I was considering creating my own extension to make up for lack of features/bugs/poor design/other issues in the other existing tree tab managers but this extension implements everything I envisioned plus a bit more. They probably did it better than I could've at that! Great design, great feature set, highly functional. Kudos to the dev(s).
- Rated 3 out of 5by Ashhar Hasan, a year agoI looked to this to replace my combo of Simple Tab Groups + Tree Style Tabs and it does seem to do the job for simpler cases.
The UI and UX are very good. The settings are easy to discover and use.
It's perfect except for the fact that it gets unusable with large tab counts while other extensions like Tree Style Tabs or Simple Tab Groups keep chugging along fine.
I'll try this out again on a fresh profile and see if it makes a difference and update the review accordingly.
- Rated 5 out of 5by colemickens, a year agoI am speechless, Sidebery is hands-down the best Firefox extension I've ever used. So good. So thoughtful. So functional. So compact. So flexible. 10/10. I'm sending a donation in the other tab here. Wow. Life-changing. :)
