Search across Firefox tabs with the Showcase extension

Posted on October 24, 2006. Filed under: Browsers |

Firefox extension Showcase displays thumbnails of open Firefox tabs and switches between them easily (ala IE 7 Quick Tabs and foXpose and a few others), but it also lets you search text across several web pages at once.

With Showcase installed, hit the thumbnail keyboard shortcut (F12 by default) to see all your open tabs as thumbnails. Then hit Ctrl-F to summon the Find box and do an as-you-type text search across the open pages real time. The pages that don’t contain the terms disappear as you search and only the ones that do remain. You can even limit your search to the pages’ titles, URLs or content, and invert the results. Super cool! Showcase has a bunch of other customizable features, but this one really blew me away.
