4.4 Stars out of 5
- by doifnwepdin, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Looking for a replacement for Showcase but without all the bloat. I just want visual (thumbnail) tags, aligned vertically to scroll when necessary.
Make an option to NOT display the text but to display only a thumbnail of the page--the text is just wasting space.
Get rid of the normal tabs as they are redundant and just waste precious screen space.
- by Firefox user 12698049, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Best extension for vertical tabs among those that will continue to work with new Firefox.
Clean and pretty, with the useful option of having either page preview or compact mode.
The only thing that bugs me is the priority order which makes a new tab active when closing the active tab. It's not the same as the previous extension I was using (tab utilities).
Thanks a lot for this awesome work.
- by Jack, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5I had to go to two stars because it does have a vertical column of extra tabs as promised . . . but the tabs are still on the top, too (why would I want two tab bars?) and they're not in a tree, they're not grouped, they're not drag and droppable, the idea of a pinned tab is not meaningful . . . Honestly I think moz should have delayed nightly 57 until they had gotten someone to fully replace tree-style tab and just integrate all that stuff into the browser itself. Sorry tab center redux, it was really not fair to you for mozilla to send me here from the "find a replacement" button.
- by KERR, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Couple of things I've noticed as I've ventured into FF v57 (no turning back!):
- Tab previews for new tabs aren't updated until I click the tab (by design?)
- Would be great to have a way to determine which tabs have been visited and which are new unvisited ones (eg I use TabMixPlus for this, handy when opening a lot of links in new tabs)
- Would be great if tabs were shown in a Tree (so you could easily see parent tab/collapse child tabs)
- Support for VivaldiFox colouring would be awesome too
- Took me ages to figure out I had to enable the sidebar and show Tab Center Redux - might need to show users how to do this
- Hard to know if you've opened links in new tabs once the vertical pane is full (eg new tabs are hidden from view unless you scroll down the tab pane)
- by Aris, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great work!
To hide the default tabs toolbar (for now until Mozilla releases a proper tab toolbar API) add this to userChrome.css:
visibility: collapse !important;
Furthermore go to customizing mode and enable "title bar".
The result will be a proper tab side bar without seeing "default tabs".
- by jyc, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This is an awesome add-on. It seems completely integrated with the rest of the browser (even has the transparency/"vibrancy" on macOS), and matches the default style as well. It's too bad that the tabs at the top of the browser can't currently be hidden, though.
EDIT: The search feature seems to interact in strange ways with VimFX, however.
- by LeartS, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great redux version of Tab Center that works in Firefox 56+
In addition to the original one, it also offers the ability to move the tab bar on the right side; which is really great as in my opinion that's the better position. It also features a dark theme.
Some points to improve:
- Doesn't hide the standard top tab bar (but that's a limit of the webextensions API at the moment, not something the developer can fix)
- The font is different than all the rest of the UI, not well integrated
- The new tab button doesn't integrate with "tab containers" as the original Tab Center did, so you cannot open container tabs from this extension.- Hiding the standard top bar is like you said out of my control at the moment.
- The new version should fix the fonts on all platforms.
- Try long pressing the New Tab button ;-) (it's not obvious to users, we should do something about it)
- by user_254156, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5One of the best add-ons for managing a large amount of tabs.
It’s a really powerful tool that is being actively developed and improved.
I’m looking forward to all the new functionalities that will be coming in the future.
- by Michal Stanke, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5I wonder why this add-on is marked as compatible with Firefox for Android...
Anyway this looks like a interesting spin of Tab Center Test Pilot experiment, with few limitations (I guess it's because of the WebExtensions API). First the base line with tabs is still there. Second it's in the commons sidebar, so you cannot access i.e. bookmarks sidebar at the same time.
Giving 4*, as I like the feature very much. Would be nice to have a Ctrl+"key" shortcut to quickly switch to the tabs sidebar.You are in luck, you can use "Ctrl+Shift+O" or "Command+Shift+O" if you are on macOS to open the sidebar.
I also removed the Firefox for Android compatibility which is wrong.
