Firefox feature wishlist : tab groups

I wish Firefox (or any web browser for that matter) had a nice and easy way to group tabs together. If I could just move or copy tabs between groups, color them differently together or one by one, collapse and expand groups, search for tab, link tabs together (close one and linked one close together, move one and others will follow), etc.  Considering the amount of time it took for tabs to go mainstream, I am not sure I’ll live long enough to see a solution for grouping…

P.S.: Yes, I am aware of

  • grouping related tabs in several browser windows,
  • ColorfulTabs plugin for Firefox,
  • using bookmark groups to save tabs and open them later with one click,

but these aren’t solving my problems.  Not as they are now at least.

  1. Combine open windows -- Example: You have 4 browser windows open each with multiple tabs. You select this new option called “Combine open windows” and it combines all open windows and tabs into one window and all the open tabs.


  2. I’m always using just one browser windows, but I have a heck a lot of tabs, which I shuffle around. Tab Mix Plus and Tab Kit are the two extensions that almost get me to where I need to be, though not exactly.
