If you haven’t figured it out already, folks, its Windows 7 week. This week, we’re featuring downloads and web apps that will enhance the novelty of having a brand new operating system (it’s really a great thing, isn’t it?). We wanted to include a sleek looking, crystallized browser skin for our Firefox add-on of the week to match Windows 7, but we figured you’re already satisfied with Personas , so why not something a little more utilitarian? In comes Tab Mix Plus , which enhances Firefox’s tab browsing capabilities and gives you more options when you’re working with tabs.
Oh, and if you’re like us, you probably end up with a massive amount of tabs accumulating themselves at the top spot—sometimes, they get so deep, we forget what we sites we have open in the first place. VertTabbar is another add-on that maximizes your browser’s built-in features and aids you in actually recognizing the titles of the pages you’re perusing. It displays your tabs in a vertical column on either side of the browser and allows you to choose the width of the tab bar, the alignment of the title text of tabs and the position of the favicon (a quirky bonus feature we never thought possible).
When paired with Tab Mix Plus, VertTabbar makes Firefox even more of an essential browser to work with on a Windows 7 machine. Never again lose track of your work, or you plans to dominate the Internet’s most popular message boards. Of course, these add-ons work perfectly well with Windows Vista and XP!
Every Tuesday, we pick a new Firefox Add-on as our favorite of the week. Have an Add-on that you can't live without? Send suggestions to florence [AT] maximumpc.com with "Firefox Add-On" in the subject line.
