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 or Tab Center Reborn.


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.

Feel free to install the add-on, read the full proposal, or file a new bug! We also have a Contributor’s document, if you want to get involved and maybe fix some bugs.
