Customize New Tabs With Firefox Add-on, Desktop

05May09

If you use Firefox and are a fan of Tabs (check and check!) then you may want to give Desktop a look.  Desktop is an experimental Firefox Add-on that allows you to create a custom page loaded with shortcuts to your favorite websites.  Every time you open a new tab, you’ll see a set of thumbnails which allow you to access the sites you like to frequent.

Besides just thumbnails, you can also add search widgets and folders.  You can also customize the background of your tab page as I did in the image above.

Desktop is experimental so check back often to see if new features have been added and to see which version of Firefox it is compatible with.

To see Desktop in action, watch the screencast below (best viewed in HD in full screen):

    I think this is cool for people that like to uses multiple websites at once.

    I’ve got two installations on different machines, with one opening the thumbnailed URLs in a new tab and the other in the same tab. I can’t find out how or where to change this habit.

    Anyway I like this add-on!
