Compact Tabs is a free Firefox extension to increase the space for page titles in the Firefox tabs. This extension simply removes the extra White space on the tabs to show more of the title.
This extension will not effect the size of the tab. If you are working on a large number of tabs at a time, then this extension can come in very handy. It is often very confusing to identify the tabs just by viewing them. Compact Tabs extension will shows more of text of the title on the tab, and hence it will be easier to identify the tab.
While working with any extension to reduce tab size (to delay tab scrolling), then this extension makes the title on the tabs even more readable.
How to Increase the Space For Page Titles in Firefox:

My Opinion on Compact Tabs:
There are many Firefox extensions to make working on multiple tabs easier (Tile Tabs is perhaps the best among them), and most of them are rich with control options. Unlike them, Compact Tabs is pretty simple extension that simply removes the White spaces, which gives more space for the page titles. Even with this limited utility, I find this extension very useful. This tiny extension makes the it easier for you to identify the page with its title, and hence, shifting between a number of tabs is easier. Simple, and really useful for multi-tabbers!
