Firetitle extension for the Firefox browser
Cedric points out the Firetitle extension for Firefox. It allows you to prepend every tab in the same browser window with the same string. This way, you could have a window of "e-mail", a window of "blogs" and a window of "work". You'll need it for fast switching via the Alt-Tab.
FireTitle was written by Jon Nowitz, a Google colleague, and it lets you name your FireFox windows in very flexible ways. If you do a lot of tab browsing, it's nice to be able to keep a consistent title for one window regardless of which tab it is currently displaying (e.g. "weblogs", "email"). Press Ctrl-; and you can name the current window (which will be preserved for future FireFox invocations). The version on mozilla.org is still for pre-1.5 FireFox but Jon already has updated it to 1.5 (I'm running it as we speak) and it will be uploaded there very soon.Original post by Cedric
