A Lifehacker post on how to load Google Wave as a tab within Thunderbird
inspired me to make a simple extension called ThunderTabs
. Its basically a simple way to load any URL in a tab in Thunderbird. I've loaded Gmail, Google Voice, and Google Wave as tabs and it makes my Thunderbird a useful "communications hub".
Thunderbird usually remembers the Tabs open in your last session, but unfortunately it will randomly "forget" making this add-on a must-have if you are using tabs in Thunderbird 3.https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/70001
