One good thing of using Firefox browser is it allows you to open new page in a new tab instead of a new window, so that you don’t need to switch from one window to another. However, the default width of the tab displayed might be too long and can easily occupy all of the space when you open up to 6 tabs within the same window. If you would like to change the width of the tabs to become the same size as its favicon, you can do it by installing the Firefox plugin, named as FaviconizeTab.
