Useful Firefox Add-ons: Copy Tab to New Window, Open URL From Clipboard

I stumbled upon a few new Firefox add-ons that address functionality I have long been interested in.

  1. Simply define new tab settings with NewTabURL.

    You can access this add-on here. It allows you to specify what to do with a new tab. It’s pretty simple, but very cool.

    The feature I am most excited about is the ability to automatically open a link that you have copied in a new tab, as shown in the image above.
  2. Move or copy an existing tab to a new Window with OpenInWindow.

    This add-on adds two new options to your menu when you right click on a tab. This functionality is standard in Chrome, but it’s great to see it in Firefox too!
