Why was All Tabs Helper created?
I have a friend who typically has over 500 tabs open, and I would watch as they struggled to manage their tabs via the tabs bar. The "List all tabs" drop down menu displays tabs in a form which seemed so much more practical to me than the tabs bar. But it seemed like it fell short in that the only thing you could do was select a tab. Originally I thought to just add the ability close a tab, and to move a tab by drag and drop. But very quickly I started to see what an ideal interface this would be to do things I had wished I could do with tabs - move or close multiple tabs - load/unload them - view only most recently visited, duplicates, or search them - and so many other things. Over time All Tabs Helper evolved into what it is now.

My Development Philosophy
I do this for ME. It is an outlet for my creative expression. Sometimes I see work someone is doing, or that I am doing, and I'm inspired how I can make a tool or improve existing software that would assist. Maybe others can benefit from it.
Sometimes folks say they really like my addons but they want a certain feature and so will "withhold" stars in the rating until they get it. Seems kind of like cohersion to me. Not a good idea.
I'm sometimes asked, "Where's the Donate button?" I've chosen not to use one because the layout on AMO feels to me a bit like soliciting, and it implies funding for continued development, and I'm just not able to promise anything. However, there are some who sincerely want to express their thanks for the benefit they've received from my work. If you wish to make a donation, you can PayPal me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (I have seen sites that have a “tip jar”, which I think has a more favorable implication)
