MC2 Post 752 Fresh Candy for Firefox


Fresh Candy for Firefox

Tab Candy Makes Tabs Managable

But Do You Really Want Candy!

Unfortunately, Tab Candy isn’t ready for the mainline Firefox releases and it’s provided (right now) as a full-blown Minefield (Firefox development) build rather than as an extension. It looks stable and like it’s headed for inclusion in Firefox, but it is important to realize it is in development and might not even make it to mainline.
But if you’re willing to go with the bleeding edge, you can start using Tab Candy today. The builds that Raskin has provided are working out fairly well for me so far, if a bit slower than the Firefox 4 beta I’ve been running. But I haven’t tested them on all platforms or for very long. Use at your own risk, and make sure to back up your profile before running experimental versions of Firefox. (But you knew that already, right?)
