Tab Candy
Cute? Needed? Looks like it will be part of the browser anyway...

Mozilla is testing a new Firefox interface designed to tame that seemingly endless string of tabs stretching across the top of your browser and beyond.

Known as Tab Candy, this alpha prototype provides a separate window where you can lay out your tabs like playing cards and sort them into groups. You can move tabs from group to group and sort the groups themselves, and when you select a particular group, a Firefox window opens with only those tabs loaded.

"Its hard to keep everything straight with dozens of tabs all crammed into a little strip along the top of your browser," reads a blog post from Mozilla user interface guru Aza Raskin unveiling the project.

"We need a way to organize browsing, to see all of our tabs at once, and focus on the task at hand. In short, we need a way to get back control of our online lives."
