Close Those Tabs!

I got this from Kai, who is one of the more effective people I know.

I noticed over our interactions, he'd occasionally make a reference to "closing tabs."

The fifth or so time I heard it, my ears perked up. Hey, Kai, what do you mean...?

"I don't like having lots of tabs open on my browser. I try to close them all as quickly as I can."

Huh. I press for more details. He also almost always closes every tab by the end of the day.

Google Chrome - Firefox - Internet Explorer Browser Integration Without Ever Closing Chrome

On Zach Browne

I ran across two extensions for Google Chrome created by iBlogBox that are very, very cool. They essentially give you the ability to run three-browsers-in-one with Google Chrome as the core browser. The process is very simple and can be done in less than 5 minutes. It requires installing two extensions for Google Chrome and installing two executable files, one for Internet Explorer and one for the Gecko backend to Firefox.

Being able to use different tabs for different browsers is not only much easier, but has several uses for a WordPress web developer as well. The most obvious reason is checking browser compatibility with my WordPress development work but there are many things that only run under Internet Explorer, such as QuickBooks Online for example, my accounting program. Until recently Google Pagespeed was only available for Firefox. The uses for this setup is extensive.

Here's what to do.

Step 1 - Install Google Chrome if you have not already.
