Please stop hijacking option+shift+arrow key combo on Mac OS. Рейтинг 1 из 5 звёзд

I use the option+shift+arrow key combo a lot, to select words using the keyboard, but since Tile Tabs WE was released, it stopped working. If I disable the addon, it goes back to normal. I checked to see if there's any way I can customize the add-on's keyboard shortcuts, but couldn't find anything.

Addon should be named Tile Windows WE Рейтинг 1 из 5 звёзд

Hello DW-Dev,

I suggest you rename this addon to Tile Windows, the current name does not cover its functionality.

I did see your responses to the other reviews, a few things are unclear to me, can you please comment ?

Is my understanding correct that Mozilla will remove functionality from its API in FF57, that breaks the current Tile Tab addon , without having alternatives in the WE API ?

If so, should you, with support of its 62K users, make more noise to prevent that from happening ?

What is the plan , will the Tile Tab functionality eventually flow into this Tile Tab WE addon , or will the original Tile Tab addon eventually start working again ?

Needless to say, I very much like the current Tile Tab addon, so let us know through the popup window how we can help to keep it alive. Not sure if you can override the "do not show again" flag, to reach all of us ;-)

Thanks !
Rene

Future of Tile Tabs ...

All traditional (legacy) add-ons, such as the original Tile Tabs, will not work with Firefox 57 or later versions.

Firefox 57 and later versions will only support add-ons that have been built using the new WebExtensions API's (which are the same as the Chrome extension API's).

Using the WebExtensions API's, it is not possible to display multiple pages simultaneously within the same browser window. This is why Tile Tabs WE has to move each tiled tab into a separate window.

There have been contacts with Mozilla about providing a new WebExtensions interface that would allow a new add-on to be developed that is more similar to the original Tile Tabs. There has been some good progress made with implementation of this interface, but there are some design issues that are blocking further progress.

When this new WebExtensions interface is available, the plan is to develop a new add-on that will work much more like the original Tile Tabs. In fact, there is already a fully developed and working prototype of this new add-on. It is still hoped that this can be completed in time for the release of Firefox 57.

The Tile Tabs popup notification will appear twice more before Firefox 57 is released.

Less useful because of WebExtension limitations Рейтинг 3 из 5 звёзд

This is "Tile Windows", not "Tile Tabs". Not the developer's fault, but Mozilla's one due to current lack of features in WebExtension API. And unfortunately, splitting windows consumes more resources than splitting tabs.

Different, but not useless ...

Tile Tabs WE has the same basic objective as the original Tile Tabs - to display multiple web pages in a tiled layout - and it does that!

Tile Tabs WE works differently to the original Tile Tabs, because using the WebExtensions API's, it is not possible to display multiple pages simultaneously within the same browser window.

Tiled tabs are seperate windows Рейтинг 3 из 5 звёзд

All this does is break out each tab in separate windows in a tiled pattern, rather than actually tiling the tabs inside the main window.

Спасибо и на этом. Рейтинг 4 из 5 звёзд

Есть конечно над чем поработать но на webextension большего не добьешься... Посмотрим еще во что превратится TabMix...

Does not appear to tile anything Рейтинг 2 из 5 звёзд

Obviously I'll adjust my rating if there's something I'm missing, but this extension seems to just open windows and put them next to each other instead of partitioning the content frame.

It does tile pages in windows ...

Not enough control Рейтинг 2 из 5 звёзд

This extension accomplishes the basic task of showing two pages side-by-side. But you have no real control over which tabs get split (it's always the current tab plus the next tab), you cannot easily switch which tab is shown in the tile after you launch the tiled view, and worst of all if you have multiple monitors, there is no way to control which monitor the split view pops up on (it's always the primary monitor even if Firefox is on the secondary monitor).

No replacement for Tile Tabs Рейтинг 2 из 5 звёзд

This is unfortunately not a decent replacement for the Tile Tabs extension, which no longer works due to Firefox now using Web Extensions. Instead of tiling the tabs, it simply creates a new window. Not ideal.

Hopefully the upcoming add-on will be closer to the original, but I'm not holding my breath. Oh well.

Очень плохо! Рейтинг 1 из 5 звёзд

В браузере включены группы вкладок и никак не получается открыть две вкладки из одной группы рядом. Всё время открываются вкладки из других групп.
Я не понимаю...

More like tile windows Рейтинг 2 из 5 звёзд

I know that WE is limiting and that's a bit sad on such a plugin. I prefer the non WE one because it actually tile tabs, not windows.

I think the WE implementation is an acceptable, but the keyboard shortcuts really need to be changeable. As it stands, this extension removes the ability to select text properly inside web forms, pages, or any other browser UI text fields. Alt+Arrow keys allow you to jump the cursor through text one word at a time, and Shift + Alt + Arrow keys is how you can select one word at a time.

With these commonly used navigation elements overridden, the browser becomes unusable for anything more involved than clicking on things. Doing development in Firefox is definitely no longer possible, which is ironic given that Tile Tabs has generally been one of my most useful dev tools ...

Edit : interestingly this behavior seems to be a little different in FF than in other browsers I've used it in. Some text fields retain the ability to navigate the cursor, so my initial review was a bit hasty. One particular area I use this feature though is with selected text on a page itself. Say I've loaded an admin UI and I want to grab some chunk of text that appears in the middle of a larger block...I can mouse over where I want to start selecting text and click once. This will place an invisible cursor of sorts, where I can then use the Shift + Arrow keys or the Shift + Alt + Arrow keys to set the marked text for copy.

This is especially useful when the text you want to select is a link, but you don't want to actually click the link for whatever reason.

This review is only correct for Mac OS X ...

The four keyboard shortcuts used by Tile Tabs WE are Alt+Shift+ArrowKey (Up, Down Left, Right).

On Windows or Linux, using Firefox or Chrome, the the Alt+Shift+ArrowKey combinations have NO effect on cursor position or text selection, whether in form fields or on page text.

On Windows or Linux, using Firefox or Chrome, the action of selecting one word at a time is performed using Ctrl+Shift+ArrowKey, NOT using Alt+Shift+ArrowKey.

On Mac OS X, the action of selecting one word at a time is performed using Alt+Shift+ArrowKey, as described by the review author.

Using the new WebExtensions API's, it is not possible to define different keyboard shortcuts for different operating systems. Also, it is not possible to choose other key combinations that are not already used on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

So the only way to address this issue would be to provide a new option to disable the keyboard shortcuts.

perfect for middle-click browsing side-by-side Рейтинг 4 из 5 звёзд

It works great with single monitor setups, allowing side-by-side viewing while using ctrl-middle mouse click to see webpages show on other tile.

Unfortunately, could not get multi monitor to work, in order to have 2 full viewing webpages open that are tiled and synced, so that I could use one for regular browsing and ctrl-middle mouse click on urls to see them appear on other monitor. Please add this feature !

It creates two new windows, side by side, instead of dividing tab space between two.

The no-WebExtensions one works great, however.

Allows viewing of multiple web pages in a tiled layout ...

Tile Tabs WE works in a slightly different way to the original Tile Tabs. This is unavoidable when using the Firefox's new WebExtensions API.

However, both Tile Tabs and Tile Tabs WE are designed to achieve the same objective of viewing multiple web pages in a tiled layout.

Nice try Рейтинг 4 из 5 звёзд

but looks strange.....

webextension really need some sort of extension
