Seeing as Branch has gone to Places, I've installed SuperT 0.3.5. Working well, as far as I can tell.

ok, i'll work on the code for it and will probably include it sometime around 0.3.8 or 0.4.
since i've finished my main feature set, i'm only adding features on request.

btw, 0.3.5.1 wil be out this afternoon.

i'm currently taking a computer arts class, so in my free time, i made a couple icons for my extension.
i haven't had time to make anything fancy, but take a look at these:

superT 0.3.5.1 has been released!

Latest Improvements:

<li>added menu item to Tools menu for ’superT Options’ (no pref)
<li>that’s it, that’s why it’s still 0.3.5.x, i like 5’s anyway :D

To remove 'superT Options' from the Tools Menu:
Add the following code either to userChrome.css, or, if you have Stylish, as a style:
Code: Select all
menuitem[label="superT Options"] {display: none !important;}


To enable the 'No close buttons on each tab' hidden feature:
Add the following code either to userChrome.css, or, if you have Stylish, as a style:
Code: Select all
@import "chrome://tabclicking/content/noclosebuttons.css";


Features I'm working on (not included in 0.3.5.1):
<li>Ctrl-click link opens link in a background tab
<li>'Open tabs to the right of current tab' will instant apply
<li>Three options for closing tabs:
<li>1. Focus the tab to the left of the tab being closed
<li>2. Focus the tab to the right of the tab being closed (default behavior of Firefox)
<li>3. Focus the last selected tab
Version 0.3.5.1 includes options #2 and #3.
I will not be releasing so-called development builds becuase all of my version are pretty much development builds and yet are stable and have no known major bugs when released.

Indeed. Stable in both the latest Trunk and Branch nightlies. Excellent work, desertfox!

My vote, if it matters. :mrgreen:

This seems like a wonderful extension - I dropped tmp due to bloat - but one thing I would like is to have an option to open new tabs for searches in the address bar and in the search bar. I know I can just hold down Alt but....

I know, I know, this is how many slim tab browsing extensions start. People want a light extension and with everybody asking for this and that, it ceases to be such and ends up as a TBE wannabe.

Again, vote for which icon you want for this extension!

@Uncle Spellbinder: your vote does count! :)

Also, the xpi file for superT 0.3.5.1 is only 30KB,
while TMP 0.3.0.5's is 267KB and TBE's is 319KB.
Even with more features added, superT 0.5 will be below 35KB,
keeping it small, fast, and bug-free. :)
So no chance of bloat here.

And if you want session restoring,
zeniko's awesome Session Manager is the best, with an xpi file of only 40KB,
while Sessionsaver's is 127KB, with more bugs.
Session Manager even saves your form data and login cookies if you want it to!

@Peterg2: with the above stats, i assure you that superT will never become bloated.
I only add features that I consider useful to the majority of users.
I'll consider your suggestion though I doubt it'll be added anytime soon.
See the above post for features I am currently working on.
Note that I am also a busy high school student with ap classes, homework, extracurriculars, and whatever i can squeeze in of a social life that take up most of my time.
I'm also a first-time extension developer, so I'm learning as I go.
The Firefox DOM and JavaScript function library is pretty dense. :P

so i did some hard-core coding last night, and figured out how to code my version of the so-called tabscroller feature, but you can't scroll it with the mouse wheel like the tabscroller extension.
you press ctrl+tab to bring up the the list of tabs and keep pressing tab or shift+tab until you get to the tab that you want and then release ctrl, or you can click on the menu with the mouse to select the tab that you want.
it behaves exactly like the ctrl+tab tab list feature in TMP, except with less code.
well, there's not much point to talking about it when you can't use it yet, so check it out when i upload 0.3.10 after i get home from school.
i've also added 'focus left tab after closing tab' and 'ctrl-click link inverses focus of new tab' to 0.3.10
so check back in about 6 hours and i should have 2 new versions up:
superT 0.3.6 is a 100% stable release without the still-in-development ctrl+tab tab list and focus left tab after closing features.
superT 0.3.10 is a feature complete beta dev build of superT 0.5 with all the features listed above, except 0.5 will have a revamped and improved prefs window.

@desertfox,
sorry to jump on the feature-requesting bandwagon, but i think this is something that may already be in there (since you have tab clicking options). can you add "undo close tab" to the list of options (i like to middle click on the tab bar to reopen the last closed tab.

thanks!

just to comment on that, tmp has over 20 languages all together which seem to make over 110kb of the extension. with only the english language the extension would be 148kb. the session part of the extension added a great deal of the size (around 20-30kb). the images themselves also make up probably 20 kbs. other dialogs such as the rename dialog, etch also added some size. if this is stripped. the extension would be less than 100kb


anyways btw, i took a look at the errors in flock and most seem to be from the search and address bars. not sure but maybe tbp might have these problems

also it doesnt have the same bookmarks/history system so it will cause problems. ill try to see if this can be fixed next week

@desertfox:
I like this icon so well that I created .png icons out of it (for something to do).

32x32 ... Image ... 24x24 ... Image ... 16x16 ... Image

Your original is 118x118 (way too large).

If you decide to use the white one, I'll do that one for you too (unless you already have them created) .
As for the other one (supermanT)... ugghhh! :)
