  • Generic Company Place Holder ColorfulTabs for Firefox

To start sprucing up your tabs, just install ColorfulTabs into Firefox 3.0. Its palette of pleasant, low-key colors doesn't require much fine-tuning. However, the Options menu offers an assortment of tweaks: adding a background behind your tabs, adjusting the "fade" or transparency, or establishing color presets for certain preselected sites, and so forth.

My quibbles are few. I'd like the ability to establish color presets for my own favorite sites--not just for the ones in the short list. And if you're looking for a full-blown tab manager for Firefox 3.0, you might do better to wait for a stable version of Tab Mix Plus that supports 3.0. But if you just want to add a little beauty and distinctiveness to your browser tabs, ColorfulTabs is a good way to go.
