My Reviews

Tabhunter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Although marked as not compatible with nightly builds (V4.03bpre) it does work, along with Addon Compatibility Reporter. Firefox has now added searching for open Tabs, but guess what - I still prefer using Tabhunter to find a tab.

Also use Bartab to silence inactive tabs, so now usually have over 200 tabs open. This is a Terrific Addon. I only have these 3 - Addon Compability Reporter, Bartab and Tabhunter.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.7). 

BarTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Although marked as not working, it does work with latest nightly builds (V4.03apre Alpha/Beta), along with Addon Compatibility Reporter.

I have 215 tabs open, Firefox uses little memory and no CPU - all tabs not recently used are totally silenced. Terrific addon, changes browsing experience. Only penalty is a brief wait when switching to an inactive Tab while it loads

Tabhunter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Been agitating on the Firefox Developers list for a year or two for the Awesome Bar to search tab titles and URLs as well as bookmarks and history. I often have over 100 tabs open and finding one is something I spend a lot of time doing. So far Firefox has not added this sensible functionality, but this extension does the job wonderfully. Only have 3 or 4 extensions, and this is the favourite. Thanks

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5).
