Taboo 0.6.0

Firefox extension that will let you see in your browser thumb previews of your selected tabs
Taboo is a Firefox extension designed to help you deal with the browser tabs that you need to read but cannot find the time. If your browser has too many opened tabs and you need some space, this add-on can help.

This tool aims to help users that browse a lot of pages and constantly find articles or web pages that include interesting stories. Since you do not always find the time to read the articles it might be useful to bookmark them in order to read them later.

You can also pin the tab and resume the session if the browser supports this feature. The problem with this methods is that both the tab bar and the bookmark folders can become too crowded which makes it easier to find the relevant items.

Taboo allows you to save the current tab in a separate list which allows you to quickly access a web page without mixing them with your usual bookmarks. You can enter a description for each page in order to easily find the interesting article or information with the built in search function.

The extension can be accessed from the address bar buttons in order to save a certain tab or all the tabs from the current window. It also allows you to open a link by selecting the page thumbnail and to remove the current tab from the list.

If the thumbnail is not enough for selecting the desired page, you can view all the saved links in a grid or detailed view which also displays the notes and the page snapshot. A useful tool is the calendar view which provides access to the links added on a certain date.

The list of websites can be backed up to a ZIP or HTML file in order to use it on another computer or even in another browser. The ZIP archive is used for migrating the settings since it also includes the page snapshot saved as a PNG image.

Unfortunately, Taboo is only supported by legacy versions of the Firefox browser and is not actively developed. However, if you are still running Firefox 3, it is a great way to remember the pages that you need to read.
