The Tab Mix Plus extension has a gem of a feature buried deep within the settings: The ability to turn the Ctrl+Tab key from a direct tab switch into a popup menu that works similarly to the Windows Alt+Tab feature. It’ll pop up a tiny dialog window that gives you a list of your tabs, and then on release of the keys will switch to that tab.

I use del.icio.us to store all of my infrequently used bookmarks, but I’ve found that browsing by tag just isn’t very efficient for me. I always use a full text search through my bookmarks to find what I’m looking for, so what I’m really looking for is a single-click save solution similar to the star button on the Flock browser.

If you’d rather see the subject line as the top line when using the condensed view in Outlook, you can make a simple tweak to show the subject line on the top, and the from address on the bottom.
