Another great tool has been added to AMO Isaac Schemm: “Sidebar Add Custom Tab“. This add-on allows to add new Sidebar Panels for showing Web Pages contents easily with few clicks.
Most web pages are not very likely for being shown in the sidebar – available width of the sidebar is too small. But some others can be really useful there. Examples:
- You need a dictionary German Romanian for writing Email? It would be great to have a dictionary-webpage for these languages in the sidebar while you are composing an email.
- You would like to see whether there is something new in Heise News? It would be great to have …
- and so on
If you want to show a Web page in the sidebar until now we were reliant to Sidebar Panel repositories with “Add Panel to Sidebar”- scripts, or we had to do some sophisicated proceeding to add a sidebar panel.
Using the new add-on that can be done with few mouse clicks.
(only few trivial ones)
- WINDOWS Focus-Loss in the moment when a new Panel becomes added.
- Some pages (for example my WORDPRESS Reader) do not work, but that probably is a general (Sidebar-) Problem and has nothing to do with the add-on.
Did we ever have Sidebar-TABs? I prefer to call them Panels.
Web Pages suitable for Sidebar TABs
SeaMonkey project blog

Youtube: not optimum, but if you want to see/listen some music while you are working, it’s fine.
An egg timer like online-stopwatch.com, wich announces end of countdown with a ring tone (may be there are better ones needing less width?)
Probably several others …
