      Once they release an Android version I might do something simple...

        Sadly Chrome extensions are very limited in their customisation of the GUI - you can't change the rendering of tabs, and you can't even add sidebars!

        I'm definitely keeping my eye on Chrome though...

              Fair enough. I think I might just set a background color on the tab bar, since Personas aren't designed with vertical tabs in mind, and it often looks bad however you do it.

                Hmm, I'd like to avoid adding yet more options to the context menu, since this can already be done with just an extra click or two. I plan to make this easier though (http://tabkit.uservoice.com/pages/9546-general/suggestions/261505-better-shortcuts-to-manually-group-tabs), so that you could Shift+click to Group Tabs From Here To Current, then Ctrl+click to Close Group (the latter works already).

                  By "in a new window" do you mean "in a new tab"? Opening a new window whenever you click a link would be painful...
                  In the meantime you can Ctrl+click or middle+click to achieve this (or if you really mean "in a new window" then Shift+click).

                    As of version 0.5.6 Tab Kit already has a delay before switching! There's a 200 ms delay before switching to a tab on hover.
                    However, there is no delay if you've already hover-switched within the last 200 ms (or if you've hover-switched to the tab next to the hovered one within the last second) - this is so you can run your mouse over the tabs to flick through them.

                      Colors for slow-loading pages is a nice idea.

                      Note to self: https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Listening_to_events_on_all_tabs#onProgressChange should help with implementation

                        Ctrl+Tab always has cycled through all tabs (with or without Tab Kit). If you want it to switch to the most recently used tab I recommend the Ctrl-Tab extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/5244

                            Interesting idea, though not a priority, as I strongly recommend vertical tabs:

                            * Vertical lists are easier to scan (as the first words are aligned)
                            * Tab titles stay visible when many tabs are open
                            * Vertical trees are more common hence more user-friendly
                            * You can have a scrollbar (much more efficient than scroll buttons)
                            * You can see more tabs at once (since tabs are wider than they are tall)
                            * Screen width is less valuable than screen height (especially as screens get wider while websites stay narrow)

                              Ah that makes sense. Short-listing tabs was always the plan (non-matching tabs would be hidden completely while searching). Highlighting could be a nice bonus though probably not a priority.

                              @narayan: By "Modify the search (when user presses /)" do you mean that the default Firefox find-as-you-type search should be changed to search all tabs? I'd rather not change that, as it works well already, and I think users will generally know in advance whether they want to search all tabs or just the current tab. Or do you mean that "/" should be the modifier that tells Tab Kit's (future) search bar to search full text instead of just titles and addresses?

                                  Interesting. A similar thing can happen with webmail (though sometimes it is useful to distinguish tabs opened from webmail from other tabs). If implemented your way this would probably take the form of a "blocklist" of sites that couldn't be parents. I think my prefered solution though is for Pinned tabs (see http://tabkit.uservoice.com/pages/9546-general/suggestions/261508-pinned-tabs) to automatically be sterile.

                                    I like this in theory, but I'm worried that users would click tabs meaning to switch to them and unexpectedly end up closing them. There would probably have to be some delay before the close button was active, but that might get annoying...?
