Upgraded my desktop’s Firefox to version 6.0 today. The most notable feature I used is Panorama (a.k.a tab groups) and I started configuring it right away. After initial customization, my home profile looked like this:
I felt that the tab groups are very much like the workspaces on GNOME Desktop. Simple one click switchover. I also liked the way the tab groups can be named and the favicons of the tabs are highlighted.
Here are the key advantages of Tab Groups I could see
- Avoid Tab/Window clutter
- Avoid interruptions from tabs that are not critical for now
- Easy switch over to other tab groups
- Ease of linking a tab to a tab group
- Preserving the tab groups across restarts
