Tab Candy for Google Chrome – TooManyTabs

TooManyTabs Google Chrome Tab Candy

Shocked? Even we are! From the day we got Tab Candy feature in Firefox 4 beta 4 we were exploring many media sites to check whether the same feature will be implemented in Chrome browser. But we came to know Google is not planning for something like that as of now!

Tab Candy

Tab Candy is a feature added in Firefox to help organize your browsing. With one keystroke Tab Candy shows an overview of all tabs to allow you to quickly locate and switch between them. Tab Candy also lets you group tabs to organize your work flow.

Tech LinkTab Candy – Firefox’s Next Big Innovation

Mozilla team took sometime in implementing this feature on Firefox 4. Finally on August 24, 2010 we got a much awaited tab candy feature on Firefox 4 beta 4. Something different, something new and it is one of a best innovation by Firefox.

What’s next? Over? Nope! We have been seeing all the latest browser builds Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 4, Opera are getting chromified. Firefox 4 always found resembling Chrome. But this time we got a extension which makes Google Chrome resembling Firefox 😛
