We saw the shares of IE and Firefox dropped down due to the latest version of Chrome browser by Google. In many places Firefox tried to copy few things from Chrome and started imitating to attract users from Chrome and few they tried their own as well. However, a new Firefox innovation called Tab Candy will make Firefox act more like a operating system, with much-improved multitasking and sharing capabilities.

Aza Raskin the head of Tab Candy team said, How many of us keep tabs open as reminders of something we want to do or read later? We’re all suffering from info guilt. We need a way to organize browsing, to see all of our tabs at once, and focus on the task at hand.

Tech Tip: Aza Raskin is the Head of UX at Mozilla Labs and he is the son of Macintosh creator Jef Raskin. He joined Mozilla in 2008.

Tab Candy is an experimental project 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.

Tab Candy will be one of the great innovation by Firefox team as they are trying to a OS like interface inside the browser. Following are the features we got about the Tab Candy,

  1. Organize tabs into groups that you can be named and placed on the browser as desktop-like view.
  2. Save tab groups to look at later
  3. When you switch to a grouped tab only the relevant tabs are shown in the tab bar, which helps you focus on what you want. That means you can focus on the task you are doing.

  4. Search through your tabs
  5. Tap Option-Space on the Mac or Control-Space on Windows to zoom out and see thumbnails of all open tabs

Well that is a obvious question which each reader get whenever we try to tell something.

During the announcement of Firefox 4 in May, the Firefox team had Tab Candy listed in light gray at the bottom of its list of new features (giving no indication of its importance).

Raskin said “The reason why Tab Candy was listed in grey in the product plan is that there are still some implementation challenges to be solved and a couple user experience questions to be answered for us to be able to commit to TabCandy being in Firefox 4.”

If the Firefox team can pull off all of the features of Tab Candy that it recently demonstrated, it would leapfrog Chrome in functionality. Make no mistake, this is Firefox’s best shot at competing with Google Chrome, especially since the rest of Firefox 4 feels a lot like a copy of Chrome. Launching Firefox 4 with Tab Candy should be Mozilla’s top priority which at least can make some difference with Chrome.

Lets wait and watch when the Tab Candy will be part of Firefox. Have any thoughts on Tab Candy? icon smile Tab Candy   Firefox's Next Big Innovation Please do share with us and let us also know more icon smile Tab Candy   Firefox's Next Big Innovation
