Not to be confused with Mozilla bug 1410548 - Tab hiding
Comment https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8ipefx/-/dytyf1g/?context=1 draws attention to four extensions. The three that do not use containers:
- Panorama View by photodiode
- Totally not Panorama (fork of Panorama View 0.6.15) by Nikolay Yordanov
- Tiled Tab Groups by chzesa.
I ran some quick tests with Firefox 60. As far as I can tell:
- a group that is created by one extension is not usable by an another extension.
Will there be no WebExtensions API for groups?
Also AFAICT none of the extensions allows a group to span multiple windows.
Please, am I missing something?
Development of an extension by Mozilla, or someone at Mozilla
Was the October 2017 talk of a straight up rewrite/replacement (for Tab Groups) … from a Mozilla developer wishful thinking?
I imagined that something from Mozilla might become an experiment in Firefox Test Pilot.
