Firefox: How to organize with Simple Tab Groups

It was about 6 years ago, when I got my current monitor. It was a good 4 inch upgrade from the previous one. Finally I am in the big leagues! And I didn't have to spend any money on viagra (sorry, stupid joke, I know).

Firefox used to have a really good extension, called Firefox Panorama. The aim was that the user could group tabs how they like, so they get a little bit better organized. However this extension ended some time ago, I don't know why. My guess is that Mozilla didn't want to confuse the average user. However the person never had to use Panorama, it was just there.

Many years later, Firefox Quantum is here, with a new line of extensions, and luckily people are fun of Panorama, did something really nice. It's called Simple Tab Groups.

I recently discovered this, when I realized I have the usual, about 100 tabs open, and I simple got lost, despite I use vertical tabs, which is a very good solution for this many tabs. But I needed something that I can use for thematic grouping. I remembered tab groups and went searching.

Found Simple Tab Groups and instantly liked it, because it has good posiblities and keyboard driven too (somewhat).

In default it would be on your address bar thing, but you can call up with F8 too. There are a lot of customization and settings, which I don't want to go through.

However these are some of the highlights:

  • backup of tab groups, even automatically
  • dark mode
  • different icon graphics and colors
  • hotkey customization
  • simple UI for managing groups
  • associate tab groups with containers

I think it's worth a try, and it certainly helped me. I use it for about a week now, and I like it. I hope similar solution would pop-up for Qutebrowser too.
