Experiences and Experiments in Programming

 Thursday, December 07, 2006

You know how you use something for a long time but you just never bother to use one of its functions or features?  Then when you finally do, you wonder why you had not done it earlier.  Well today I closed a web site I was updating and laziness forced me to try out one of the features in Firefox 2.0.

I know there have been add-ons that allow you to recover from a crash or just re-open a closed tab, but I never really tried any of them.  I knew that Firefox 2.0 had incorporated this feature into their history menu, but today was the first time I used it.  Ahhhh, the joy of discovering new ways to recover from my own mistakes.

So I accidentally closed the tab I was working on and did not want to have to retype the address for a new tab.  So I tried out the "Recently Closed Tabs" submenu of the History menu.  What a great tool!  I mean, I close tabs all the time by accident.  And sometimes I am not even sure where I was when I closed it!  Now I have a new favorite feature and it can be found in the recently closed tabs!
