Firefox 2 Features: Undo Close Tab

I thought I would highlight a few Firefox 2.0 features which impressed me.

Also added is the ability to undo closing a tab or window.  This is awesome, and probably my favorite user-visible new feature.  With the Firefox 2’s introduction of the close button on every tab, users are more likely to close the tab by mistake – I know I have.  I’m fairly sure that there was an extension for undo-tab-close functionality for previous versions of the browser, but having it built in is great.

I just found the “browser.tabs.disableBackgroundClose” configuration toggle (in about:config).  When this is set to True, it causes mouse clicks on the close icon on background tabs to activate the tab rather than close it.

What are your favorite features?
