Part I: Firefox > Harnessing the Power of Tabbed Browsing

Chapter 6. Harnessing the Power of Tabbed Browsing

DO OR DIE:

  • Tabs and goatees

  • Tabbed browsing options

  • Multiple home pages

  • Tabs and windows

Whenever I’m surfing, particularly when I’m doing research on some topic, whether for business or pleasure, I like having multiple threads of inquiry. I’ve tried doing things in one window—a single instance of the browser—but it’s often too much work: I have to remember where I was, and if I back up and go a different direction even for a moment, I’ve lost the pages I was working with in the other thread. It’s better to have several copies of the browser open at once so that I can navigate back and forth along several different lines. But I can’t have everything open at once on the screen, and if it’s all minimized, there’s not a lot of indication about what’s open. I have to switch between all the browsers to find the one I want at that moment. What a pest! Fortunately, Firefox lets you create and use tabs, which are basically additional browser screens that have all the power and features of a separate instance of the browser.
