Interaction Design: Tab Management

Another post, another UX idea! The latest browsers releases are not the memory hogs they once were, but one of the things they cannot yet handle perfectly are tabs. It must’ve happened to you as well: after an afternoon of merrily browsing the net you end up with dozens of tabs open. It’s still difficult to handle for most browser: I’m looking particularly at you Chrome! This is not an issue only from a technological standpoint, but also an UX one. Too many tabs are difficult to have a complete picture of, they cannot be meaningfully grouped and are not really visible. Today’s idea will try to solve this.
