The release of Firefox 4 with its speed, security, and interface improvements showed the impressive evolution of a browser we all love. But it did not stop us from noticing that Firefox’s download management interface has not changed at all – it still opens in a new window which makes for a messy desktop. Downloads in Tab is a Firefox extension that helps solve that by sticking the download window in a tab within your main browser window.
Once Downloads in Tabs is installed, the browser will open a tab automatically at the start of a download. You can choose to select the tab just like a regular browser tab. You can also choose to open only from the menu, or open always for every new download. After downloading, you can close the tab automatically or leave it open. You can even pin the downloads tab for quick access.
Downloads in Tabs is a much needed addon for Firefox that is especially useful for any user who downloads lots of files and want to keep everything in one browser window.
- Puts the download window as a tab.
- Select tab from menu or direct.
