Firefox Extension: Open Tab Count 1.0Posted: September 27, 2008 | Author: hilary | Filed under: projects | Tags: extension, firefox | 14 Comments »
How many tabs do you have open in your browser right now?
Did you have to count manually? Are you using Firefox? Try the open tab count extension!
I created this extension because I wanted to explore memory management in browser tabs, and I was curious about the Firefox extension architecture. I’m not quite as eager to explore memory hacks in Firefox now that Google Chrome is out and handles that issue natively, but I’m still using this extension to monitor my tab (over)usage.
The extension puts a small icon in the status bar alongside the number of open tabs. If more than one window is open, the extension shows the number of open tabs in the current window / the total number of open tabs.
Please let me know below if you have any comments!
Update: An update has been submitted to Mozilla that supports Firefox 3.5, and
it’ll show up on the it’s now available on the official extension page once it’s been approved.
