One great aspect of Google Chrome now supporting extensions as well is the fact that some developers produce extensions that have not been created yet for Firefox. Most of the extensions are obviously offering a similar functionality than those provided to Firefox users but those unique ones will eventually benefit Firefox users as well as it is likely that they will be ported to Firefox eventually.
The tabbed browsing extension TabJump might be one of those extensions. TabJump adds a button to the Google Chrome address bar that will trigger an overlay window that is helpful for tabbed browsing.
The window displays a list of tabs that have been recently closed, related tabs and the open tabs each with a favicon of the website and the website’s title.
The recently closed tabs section does not only display the last page of the tab that was closed but also all other pages that have been accessed in that tab.
Related tabs are tabs that have been opened from another open tab. A left-click on an entry in the listing either switches to the active tab or opens the page in a new tab.
Tabs can also be locked which protects them from being accidentally closed by the user. The browser will display a popup window asking the user if the tab should be really closed.
TabJump is an interesting extension for the Google Chrome 4 web browser. The extension only displays the eight latest results in its interface with no option to change that number. That’s probably the biggest shortcoming that the developer’s should fix for better usability especially for users who regularly open dozens of tabs at the same time.
