foXpose: Expose for Firefox

By Deane Barker on November 30, 2005

Viamatic foXpose – All Releases: This alone would be worth the upgrade to 1.5. It’s Expose for Firefox.

Click on the icon in the status bar to view all the browser windows with a single click.

Via Lifehacker, via has a good screenshot of the extension in action. Anyone with 1.5, would you be willing to install and report back?

  1. Well now, that’s a pretty cool extension. I’d love to be able to customize the keystroke for showing all the tabs (hard-coded at ctrl-shift-x). It seems like it even updates the pages as they load while in the tiled view. I’m looking forward to giving it a go on the PowerBook.

  2. Kinda cool I guess…but I dont find it that hard to click through the open tabs either. I’m most likely to grab the wrong tab when I have multiples of the ExpressionEngine control panel open, and since they all look alike this wouldn’t help that much either.

    Then again, it might be handy for other uses – comparing sites for competitive reviews, etc.

  3. It must have been a long day because I don’t seem to get the reason for this extension. I guess I’ll install it and see how it actually works. Maybe then I’ll understand a bit better.

    Sorry.

  4. I added it to my FF1.5 (WinXP Pro) and it works great.

    One odd thing I saw was that it dropped the Flash elements on some pages. I did not see any immediate pattern for why only some pages were effected.

    While I love (and use) Expose when I work on my Mac, it is only because the OS X dock does not have a tab for every open window (like the Windows Taskbar). For instance, Expose is the quickest way to get to an open Finder window hidden behind a larger window. In Windows every window has a button on the taskbar.

    This is a neat idea, but I think the tabs are all I need.
