Mozilla is working on a new Firefox feature called "Tab Candy", which might make you more productive, or at least less irritated by the number of tabs you have open.

"The power of the browser has grown substantially in the last ten years," writes Aza Raskin, Firefox Creative Lead. "We now use the Web to multi-task the activities we juggle every day, like vacation plans, purchases, sharing pictures, listening to music, reading email, and writing a blog post."

"It’s hard to keep everything straight with dozens of tabs all crammed into a little strip along the top of your browser," adds Raskin. "Your tab with a search to find a pizza parlor gets mixed up with your tabs on your favorite band. Often, it’s easier to open a new tab than to try to find the open tab you already have. Worse, how many of us keep tabs open as reminders of something we want to do or read later? We’re all suffering from infoguilt."

An Introduction to Firefox’s Tab Candy from Aza Raskin on Vimeo.

Tab Candy shows the user an overview of all tabs so they can be quickly located, and includes some other organizational features like lightweight grouping and tab groups.

An alpha version of Tab Candy can be downloaded here. It’s not an extension, but a "super-early build of Firefox" with the feature enabled. (ht: MG Siegler)

    Here is another interesting system.

    Free, online application (bookmark manager, multibrowser, sticky notes)

    Upon signing up, you will receive your very own KeyF11 URL, and by sending the link to others you will effectively be sharing not only your favorite sites in one fell swoop – you will share your insight as far as they are concerned by way of the notes that you have created and attached.

    You can share your own address keyF11.com/your_name but
    you are not sharing your private panels – these are password protected and hidden from other people

    They’re offering a solution to someone not being able to open a New Window?

    Surely, if you have lots of tabs open, see a page about DSLRs and want to look at prices, you should open a new window, search for DLSR and open results in tabs within that seperate window. This way, you never have an unorganised working space.

    What Tab Candy allows you to do is create a messy environment in one window, open a new dashboard which allows you to create a new group (which is essentially a new window) and drag tabs into it?

    of course like your website but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I will surely come back again.
