Magic Tab is a Mozilla Firefox extension that simply adds search functions (Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.) to new tab page. This changes new tab of Mozilla Firefox into a more meaningful tab. You can directly go for a search using a specific search function. For example, if you want to search for a video, then you can select YouTube search function and it will direct you to YouTube homepage. Likewise, you can search anything using Google search function and it will provide Google search results page showing you results related to your query.
This Magic Tab add-on is very easy to use and you can add it to Mozilla Firefox free of cost.
There are preset search functions available in Magic tab as you could see in the below screenshot. You cannot customize these search functions neither you can add more search tools which I found to be a downside of this extension.
Type any text in the text box, select a desired search function, and hit the Search button. This is all you need to do and you will find results instantly.
