This tutorial explains how to view multiple tabs as tiles in a single tab in Firefox browser.
Here is an interesting add-on for Firefox, Tile View, that comes with different layouts to view tabs as tiles. So you can view and work on different tabs together. For example, you can view a video on YouTube, read some article, perform a search, and do other work without switching between the tabs.
The add-on has 8 different layouts to add tabs as tiles either horizontally or vertically. You can use any layout as per your need. For example, if you have to add three tabs vertically as tiles, then you can use the icon of this add-on, and choose “3 Tiles – Vertical” from layout options.
Above you can see tabs added as tiles by me using this free Tile View add-on. You will also be able to switch to some other layout or close the layout when needed. So the full control remains in your hands only.
