Firefox Tab Candy Annouced

Mozilla is testing a new feature for future versions of its Firefox web browser set to allow users to organise tabs into groups.

Writing on his blog, Aza Raskin, who heads the user experience team at the company's labs units, said that his team was working on a new Firefox feature named 'Tab Candy', which will allow users to easily manage all tabs opened on the web browser.

Raskin explained that by using Tab Candy, users will be able to group the tabs on the basis of the things that they are working on, such as cooking, holiday, social networking.

He wrote: “With one keystroke Tab Candy shows an overview of all tabs to allow you to quickly locate and switch between them.”

When users will switch to a group tab, users will be able to view all relevant tabs, allowing them to focus properly.

Raskin says that the feature is currently in its alpha testing stage, and will have a number of bugs, but that users are welcome to download it from the Firefox website.
