Somewhere between Firefox 3 and the current Firefox 23 Mozilla decided to add the concept of „tab groups“ to the browser. I don’t know exactly when, because I didn’t notice it. But it absolutely changed how I use Firefox.
Before, most of the time I had 2+ Firefox windows open to seperate different tabs depending on the content, task or context. I listen to music most of the time, very often in web based sites like Soundcloud or Mixcloud, for example. A second window had become my queueing system for the music I wanted to listen to next.
Tab groups offer a better solution to that problem:
Now I just have a second tab group open all the time where I put the music related tabs. I pin the currently playing tab, so I can also access it from my normal work tab to be able to be able to stop and resume the music. When a song is finished, I close the pinned tab, switch to the other tab group and select my next track, start and pin it, and continue working. Without ever leaving the current Firefox window.
It’s not perfect. But that’s what add-ons are here for:
With these two I can change between tab groups with one click (before, you had to go to a tab grou overview and then select the tab group), and open links and bookmarks directly in any of the open tab groups.
