Simple Tab Groups is a Firefox extension that may show you how to manage your tabs. The extension was impressed by one with a comparable identify, Tab Groups.
The extension contains 5 plugins (add-ons from the identical developer) merged into one for a functioning Tab Group supervisor extension.
After you put in Simple Tab Groups, it opens a native internet web page with a screenshot to information customers how you can “Enable the restore earlier session” choice in Firefox. That’s as a result of if you restart the browser, the add-on will load the final accessed tab group. You will see that the extension added a button to the toolbar. Click on it to see three choices.
Create New Group
This is the choice you can be utilizing essentially the most. Selecting it would immediate you to assign a identify, and this creates an empty Tab Group.
To add tabs to the group, mouse over to the tab bar and right-click on a tab. Select “Move Tab To Group”. This provides the tab to the created group and hides it from view. If you’ve gotten a number of teams, you will have the choice to pick which group you wish to transfer the tabs to. You might also create new teams from the menu. Once saved, a group may be opened anytime. This works in new home windows too.
Managing Group Settings
Let’s get again to the Tab Groups’ toolbar menu. Now that we now have some teams, we will handle them. Right-click on a group’s identify to view its context-menu. This permits you to open all tabs in a group in a new window, kind the teams alphabetically, export the chosen group to bookmarks, and to reload all tabs within the group. You can discard the chosen group or all different teams, or delete the group fully.
Select the Group Settings. Here you’ll be able to rename a group, choose its icon fashion. The tab’s icon (the web site’s favicon), may be set because the Group’s icon, do that from the tab bar.
The Group Settings panel additionally has choices to mute tabs when a group is closed/restored, make a sticky group (tabs are by no means moved from the group), present/discard tabs after transferring. Simple Tab Groups works with Firefox Containers, and may be configured to mechanically transfer particular containers to a explicit group. For e.g. If you’ve gotten a container for procuring web sites, and you’ve got created a Tab Group known as procuring, it might be a good thought to maneuver the tabs within the Shopping container to the group.
The extension additionally helps RegEx for capturing tabs from the identical area.
The major menu of the add-on has a caret icon, click on on it to view different tabs (not a part of the group). There are three choices right here all of which carry out a single-click motion to: shut all these tabs, transfer these tabs to the present group, or create a new group with these tabs.
The gear icon within the menu can be utilized to entry the add-on’s choices. You can customise the open, shut, discard habits of tabs, optionally discard a tab after hiding it or allow a darkish theme and extra from this display screen. The Manage Groups choice opens a new tab with a speed-dial like illustration of every tab teams, you’ll be able to proper click on on a group to handle it.
The extension is an open supply venture. The add-on is suitable with Gesturefy, although it wants a little tinkering to get it working.
Note: Simple Tab Groups is NOT a session supervisor. If you’ve gotten many tabs in a group and shut it earlier than exiting different home windows, you’ll lose the tabs. To stop this, you need to shut all the opposite home windows first. I like to recommend utilizing the Bookmarks choice. You can even use OneTab, which does save a historical past of the tabs and has a restore choice.
Simple Tab Groups offers a simple strategy to de-clutter your browser and manage your tabs. It doesn’t intrude with the brand new tab web page, so add-ons like Group Speed Dial work alongside completely.
