Author(s):



# Tab Kit 2nd Edition
The original [Tab Kit(TK)](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/tab-kit/) is an extension of Firefox that many people are using.

This project aims to change modify the original TK to make it FF4+ compatible.
The name for the new(not quite) extension is *Tab Kit 2nd Edition*(You can still call it *Tab Kit 2* or *TK2* for short)


## Description from original Tab Kit (modified)
Tab Kit makes tabs more efficient for power users, allowing a wide variety of tweaks, all of which are optional, notably:

- Group tabs, by domain or opener (parent) tab, manually or automatically
- Vertical tab tree (with splitter), like Tree Style Tab
- Multi-row tabs
- Sort tabs, by address, last loaded, last viewed, order of creation, origin or title
- Control new tab position and close order
- Easily duplicate tabs and groups and copy/move them between windows by dragging
- Scrollwheel tab switch (Extracted to [Tab Kit - Mouse Gestures](https://github.com/tabkit/mouse-gestures))
- 'Mouse rocker' to go back/forward in history (Extracted to [Tab Kit - Mouse Gestures](https://github.com/tabkit/mouse-gestures))
- Highlight unread tabs (and emphasise current tab) (Extracted to [Tab Kit - Tab Highlighter](https://github.com/tabkit/tab-highlighter))
- Scrollbar instead of scroll arrows in over-long Bookmarks and All Tabs popups
- Open Selected Links feature
- Switch tabs on hover (Extracted to [Tab Kit - Mouse Gestures](https://github.com/tabkit/mouse-gestures))
- Options for urls, searches and/or bookmarks to open in new tabs by default


## External Dependencies
Now requires [Classic Theme Restorer](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/) Extension
Required options for `Classic Theme Restorer`:
- Select `Tabs not on Top`: should fix the vertical tabbar direction
- Uncheck `Tabs in title bar`: should fix the totally unusable layout


## External Dependencies since `0.10.0`
Some features are extracted into other extensions (which can be used separately):
- Some coloring features extracted into [Tab Kit - Tab Highlighter](https://github.com/tabkit/tab-highlighter)
- Some mouse gesture features extracted into [Tab Kit - Mouse Gestures](https://github.com/tabkit/mouse-gestures)

## Project Helper Needed!
If you want some feature added, then it might be faster to do it yourself! :P
I am working as Web Developer and don't really have time to develop Tab Kit :d


## Collaboration
Since we are on GitHub
Just fork, change and send pull request
I will check frequently (since I also use GitHub at work)

## Download from Mozilla Addon Site if possible
The one on their site is reviewed
But if you don't want to wait, then use the Custom download one :P


## Compatibility with built-in features in FF
- App/Pin Tabs: Use it at your own risk, no support provided


## License
Look the tabkit.js for now
