quoting from http://philikon.wordpress.com/2011/12/02/the-future-of-bartab/
"Since Firefox 8, you can tell Firefox to only load your tabs on demand, just like with BarTab. You can find this setting in the Firefox options/preferences dialog:"
"As far as BarTab’s future is concerned, there might be hope. People have forked it on GitHub and apparently made it work (great work, whoever you are!), other people have made XPIs with fixes available. This is awesome, but I can’t just merge their work and release it. At least I don’t want to put my name on something that I haven’t thoroughly reviewed and tested. But, if somebody else wants to take than on, I’d be more than happy to hand the keys to BarTab over. Please get in touch with me if you’re interested!"
This addon integrates so well in the firefox UI that I was tricked to think firefox 9 is finally putting that button there. What a foolish dream! How could I possibly imagined that Firefox devs have finally done some work in terms of menu usability?! Thank you Milly for correcting me!
Below is the original wrong review along with developers' response :)
thank you for this add-on. eased the pain for years. now that the feature is finally coming into firefox 9, maybe it's time for eol?
It is CM2's feature

honestly i must admit it is a shame and a great damage to my perfect self image of being paranoid and extra cautious about web and pc behaviour, but i just found this addon installed in my firefox. could it be that some other software bundle this addon without user consent? does anyone know how else could get this installed without user noticing anything? thanks
I was looking for this when i got tired of 'temporarily allow' in noscript, but found it too simplist.
later i discovered that the same functionality but with more comfort and usability (imagine you just HOVER the mouse over the noscript toolbar button and the menu appears!) can be achieved turning noscript into 'allow scripts globally' while feeling much safer.
in noscript you can also have a blacklist in effect even with "allow scripts globally". sorry to say this, this is not intended as publicity for noscript but a sincere subjective comparation.
great! works with firefox 4!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0).
doesn't work with Firefox 4.0b7
doesn't work in Firefox 4.0b7
says ok but tags remain
great! only that if I have only one tab open and have setup firefox to always show the tab bar, when it unhides, it forgets to unhide the tab bar, forcing me to ctrl-t to show it.
thank you all who complained about the X close button, I thought it was just me and some other bunch of weird extensions I just installed :) rolling back fixed.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.60).
I would *LOVE* to see this working in latest firefix release!
please make it able to search across firefox windows. I have not only 20 tabs but also have 20 firefox windows with 20 tabs, each.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8).
hoorey! there's a new version on developers webpage that works again with firefox 3.5.x !!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5).
auto fit doesn't work automatically, i must click everytime on fit to window from statusbar, very annoying! but otherwise, very good add-on, useful to set it with 150% for big monitor and elder users with eye problems.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3).
i think this is an useless add-on. you can achieve the same functionality with noscript: switch to "allow scripts globally" then you can make your blacklist. even more, you don't have to TYPE the blacklisted address like you must do if using this poor add-on, with noscript you simply choose it from a menu.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6).
I'd like to make a correction to my last review; I said firefox 3.5.1 has included similar functionality, BUT what I didn't say is that i'd still prefer this extension, because in plus compared to native firefox behaviour, it shows you the meta refresh time and also the refresh URL,so you can be aware of what's next (firefox only temporarily block the redirect but does not show WHERE it will go)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5).
FOR THOSE LOOKING FOR A 3.5.1 VERSION: YOU DON'T NEED THIS EXT. ANYMORE! the feature has been implemented within firefox! go to tools - options - advanced - generalThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5).
great extension! too bad it does no longer work in firefox 3.5.1....This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5).
excellent! brilliant! even better than the original :)
one thing: i sadly miss the ability to have my stop/reload buttons back where everyone is used to find them: near back/forward buttons...
