When I blog I literally have a lot of IE or FireFox tabs open. These tabs would normally be my info sources, a few research items, a dictionary tab, the search engine, my online bank access, paypal page… the works. You guessed I’m too multi-tasked a person to be limited to just one tab!
Fortunately, and I’m still on my blogging tools roll, we have a FireFox add-on to make your tabs world a little less awkward, specially if you’re too quick to press the ctrl-w button to close a tab you’re using. Instead of doing the standard step to hit your browsers history-today window… check this out.
Undo Closed Tabs Button 3.0.3 was recently updated June 20, 2008.
Click the image one time to undo the last closed tab. Three times to open the last three closed tabs and so on. Click the drop down arrow to see the list of last previously closed tabs and select which one you would like to undo.
If you find yourself blogging too often while in the office, hey, this works as a quick hide-the-blog-tab from the boss. Just don’t you dare rat on me when he finds out where you got the tip ayt? 🙂 Kidding.
You might want to check out Tab Mix Plus if this is too basic for you.
Tab Mix Plus enhances Firefox’s tab browsing capabilities. It includes such features as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options, undo closed tabs and windows, plus much more. It also includes a full-featured session manager.
A version for Firefox 3 is found here:http://tmp.garyr.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7031
