I often end up with way too many tabs open at once, particularly when I’m researching a particular topic. To cut down on tab overload, I’m experimenting with a nifty Firefox add-on called Cluster Tabs. In conjunction with a web service, it lets you group tabs together into “clusters.” Once you’ve clustered your tabs, you can then share them with others through Twitter, email, IM, Facebook, etc., via a unique public URL. I recorded a quick screencast to show how it works:

Cluster Tabs is easy to use, free (the cluster pages have some advertising), doesn’t require registration, and works with Firefox 3+.

Have you tried Cluster Tabs? Did it help you cut down on tab clutter?

  1. Wow, thanks for doing this review. I definitely needed something like this as I probably have about 40 tabs open on a daily basis among 3 FF browsers.

  2. If you are using a wide screen monitor, using Tree Style Tab is a much better approach, IMHO. It places the tabs on the side and creates hierarchies. For me, it is THE most important add-on.

    1. I haven’t tried that one, Zviki. I’ll check it out.

    2. But if I get this Clustertab thing correctly all tabs that are put into a “clustertab” are closed. Therefore they don’t need RAM like those tab that are just open for later reading. And well sharing is an extra bonus.
