End of Life
TabCenter is now end of life and no longer developed. It is not supported on Firefox 56+. You will have to switch to a WebExtension-based addon, such as Tab Center Redux.
Tabbed browsing is a concept that has existed for a long time without being seriously re-evaluated. In that time, browsing behaviors have changed. The web is now the central interaction point on desktop and laptop computers. For many users, their browser is the only application they ever open.
Tab Center is an attempt to solve some of the issues that have emerged from the way people use tabs (most notably the “too many tabs” problem) and provide a more versatile UI basis for future innovation. The first version of this Firefox add-on arranges tabs in a vertical rather than horizontal fashion. It is heavily inspired by and borrows ideas from the excellent VerticalTabs add-on.
We are incompatible with a number of add-ons:
- Hide Caption Titlebar Plus
- Tab Mix Plus
- Tab Groups
- Tab Groups Helper
- Tree-Style Tabs
- All-In-One Sidebar
- Mozilla Labs: Prospector - LessChrome HD
Please let us know if you find any problems with extensions not mentioned.
After cloning this repository, run
npm install and
npm install jpm then:
npm run locales && jpm runto spawn a new Firefox profile with the addon installed
npm run locales && jpm xpito generate an installable XPI file locally
