Editors' Note: The Download Now link will prompt a local download of the Firefox extension. To install the extension directly, open the file using your Firefox browser.
Tab Mix Plus lets you customize your browsing experience in Firefox by making certain adjustments to the way links respond and new tabs open. With this program, you have the control over the way the browser responds, rather than having to deal with it after the fact.
Customization options: Options for customization include specifying where links should open, whether in a new tab, in a new window, or in the current window. You can also decide how you want to handle opening and closing tabs, tab merging, and tab features. And the program even prevents a blank tab from opening when you download files.
Clear interface: The interface is clearly set up so users of all experience levels will have no trouble taking advantage of all features. Descriptions are clear, and options are grouped into categories, so you can quickly find the ones you're looking for.
Setup time: Because there are so many options, it can take some time to set things up the way you want. This may or may not be worth it to you, depending on how much you care about controlling these features. But if you do put in the time, the program works the way it's supposed to.
Tab Mix Plus is a good option if you enjoy the Firefox browsing experience but don't want to have to deal with certain built-in behaviors. It runs smoothly, was quick to install, and it offers just about every option you can imagine when it comes to customizing your tabbed browsing experience.
Tab Mix Plus enhances Firefox's tab browsing capabilities. It includes such features as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options, undo closed tabs and windows, plus much more. It also includes a full-featured session manager with crash recovery that can save and restore combinations of opened tabs and windows.
