Is Tab Center going to be a WebExtension?


(Andrei Petcu) #1

I’m interested in the way Tab Center hides the tab bar when it is set in vertical mode.

Is there a WebExtension API for hiding the tab bar?

Thank you

The sidebar API landed a month ago so it should be possible to make them from web extensions now. I’m not sure if hiding is a part of it though, and if so, if you could do the animation. I suspect not.

The only thing missing for the API is hiding the default tab bar. The sidebar API demo extension keeps the original tab list visible.

Bug 1332447 tracks that, for the curious.
