I bounce between Firefox and MS Edge Chromium. Firefox feels heavier and sometimes becomes unresponsive when using SharePoint and web-based Excel/Word/PowerPoint. MS Edge is pretty good, though I miss the middle-mouse click scrolling function.

I find myself right now often ending up in a place with my normal daily workflow where I have just a ton of Google Docs, Jira tickets, and other tabs open that are all semi related to one project or area.

Has anyone figured out a clean way of grabbing a bunch of tabs together, saving them, then putting them "away" until I need them again?

Like, let's say I'm working on a requirements ticket for a reporting update. I might have a couple Google Sheets which shows the data, a couple tickets with bug reports, a few other browser tabs, all related to each other. Is there a way I can group all of this with something like "Reporting Update" then close the tabs until I'm ready to work on it again?

I've tried fiddling with Toby as a Chrome add-on or Collections and I haven't settled on a way to handle this cleanly yet.

FF will save and restore multiple tabs every time you open it.
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...tabs-last-time

I used that at work until IT decided it was no longer supported.

Now it's FF at home, Chrome and ie (because we still have pages that only ie supports ) at work.

Most of the browsers will restore tabs when you close and reopen the windows. What I'm looking for is a way to create groups of tabs, close them or store them somewhere, add new tabs to that group, or remove tabs, but keep them "put away" while I go about my day-to-day using the browser for other things.

How about Simple tab Groups?

https://www.ghacks.net/2020/02/22/si...ing-your-tabs/

I thought (there I go thinking again ) that FF could do this by default now, but this extension might help...

I was using Vivaldi and lovin it, but just fell back into Chrome use as it tends to have the least issues overall.

MS edge has a save and restore tabs function in the upper left corner. Don't know about "grouping" them unless you want to consider all saved tabs in that group (ie. only saving those.) You can restore all of them at once.

Been a fan of Firefox since the days before it was Firefox. I'm a huge fan of the 'full page screenshot' feature, where everything contained in the browser is captured, not just what's on screen.

According to this page, Chrome 83 (released today) has tab grouping.

I just saw that they're introducing tab groups and that also there's an option to collapse a tab group coming up. This is almost exactly what I was hoping for. At the moment I've spent the past few weeks giving Microsoft Edge a test run using their Collections feature, which is working out better than I expected really.

For overall best in security, features, speed, and privacy Fire Fox is still the best. It is also the only web browser you should consider in Linux.

In and a related twist, I ended up on Firefox by the end of 2020 because chrome was encountering weird issues that just never seem to get resolved. Gotta love the amount of choice we get these days in browsers

Yuck Chrome. Resource hog and since google is an advertising agency, it is the least private and secure. But yes, I agree, there are a ton of choices. Good ones too. Pale Moon is also really freaking good.

No you are probably right. Brave is fantastic.
It seems to have come a long way with compatibility. Testing it out again in MX Linux.

Chrome may be a resource hog, but I really love having the integration between my phone, my laptop, and my PC. Being able to send links directly from one device to the other, and all my passwords on all devices is extremely convenient.

I do notice Chrome is a battery hog on mobile, but I found some tweaks you can do to reduce consumption.

None of the browsers seem to be able to prevent facebook or google ad tracking, despite disabling all the tracking options I could find. I browse something on Home Depot and suddenly I get ads for it on facebook. Browse a certain car for sale and suddenly I see car ads for the make/model I was looking at. Surprised none of the sex toys showed up in facebook ads yet.

I hear Brave is better than Firefox/Chrome for privacy. Might have to try it.

I haven't used Firefox in a long, long time. I wasn't even aware they had a similar feature.

I haven't used Firefox in a long, long time. I wasn't even aware they had a similar feature.
Yeah they were losing too many people to Chrome so they slapped it all together about 4 years ago (just going from memory).

Use an email address to create an account with Mozilla and you opt in to each feature individually.

Surprised none of the sex toys showed up in facebook ads yet.

I hear Brave is better than Firefox/Chrome for privacy. Might have to try it.
Give duckduckgo a shot. Featurewise it isn't as full fledged as some other browsers, but it seems to do an admirable job re: privacy.

if privacy is your biggest concern, then another vote for duckduck, it's my fav choice for searchengine too.

The way I have Firefox set up, I have the dom.ipc.processCount set to 50, I [may] have Webrender forced to on, I've got the facebook container installed, as well as the generic containers, and every web company gets its own container.

They can't easily cross track me with cookies, or sessions.

Chrome likes touting how much faster its Javascript compiler is, but as far as I can tell, Firefox's rendering pipeline is way, way faster than Chrome's. Faster rendering makes it seem faster in reality.
