foxtab firefox.pngMozilla has decided that in Firefox 3.1 they want users to have a fresh new way to switch between tabs in a browser window. That’s why they’ve come up with a system that resembles Apple’s Cover Flow for moving from one tab to another. What if you want a bit more eye candy though?

That’s when you turn to the FoxTab Firefox extension. Its five different viewing modes put a whole new perspective on an otherwise mundane task. Here’s a list of the available modes:

  • Stack – Tabs are 3D-stacked one behind the other, just like Vista’s Flip-3D.
  • Wall – Tabs are displayed on a wall.
  • Grid – Tabs are aligned on a grid.
  • Row – Tabs are arranged horizontally.
  • Circle – Tabs are placed around a 3D circle.

As you could imagine an extension like this is really designed for those of you who like to keep over a dozen or so tabs open at any one given time. It’s unfortunate that it’s only available for Windows users right now, but the developer says that Mac and Linux versions are underway.
