Now you can add tab-switching feature in Firefox 3, which is just like the Window switching (Alt + Tab) feature in most Operating Systems. Ctrl – Tab is an extension which does this job very efficiently and switching tabs in Firefox was never this much fun. This is a visual tab switching addon and can switch tabs just like pressing Alt + Tab in Windows. It shows thumbnails of websites that are opened in your tabs.

The order of visual preview tabs depend on their use in Firefox, and you can switch between tabs by releasing Tab and pressing it again to move to the next preview (Ctrl should be kept pressed). Or if you would like to quickly go through it, keep holding the Tab and Ctrl keys.

I’m really enjoying this addon in Firefox 3 and would recommend you all to give it a try too.

NOTE: This extension is not yet updated for Firefox 3 RC3 so, you will have to force install it.
