When I am on the internet, I am multi-tasking like usual. I keep several browser tabs open and flip through them as they load or as I need to to get information. Sometimes this practice can get confusing, especially when there are several tabs open.

I ran across a Firefox add-on that allows you to control the tabs that are active on your screen. With this add-on you can adjust where the new tabs are, where the active tab stays, and open all new searches in new tabs.

Check out the add-on here:

If you are not a Firefox user or you just hate add-ons, try out these shortcuts to help manage your tabs.

  • CTRL+Shift+F3 closes all tabs on the left of the active one.
  • CTRL+Shift+F4 closes all tabs except the active one.
  • CTRL+Shift+F5 closes all tabs on the right of the active one.
  • CTRL+Shift+F6 closes all tabs with the same domain as the active one.

(use Command instead of CTRL if you are using MAC OS).
