Tab management ought to be a huge priority for web browsers. I don’t know about you, but I find myself with dozens upon dozens of tabs littering my browser by lunchtime. Things don’t improve in the afternoon.
Microsoft and Mozilla are taking notice. Edge will soon let you set tabs aside, and Firefox is experimenting with an even better way to deal with tabs you don’t have time for right away. Yes, you can bookmark them, but you’ll only have to remove those bookmarks later.
Firefox’s new alternative is a snooze button. You can “snooze” tabs to dismiss them for a short period, just like the snooze button temporarily pauses your alarm clock or app. Unlike the snooze button on your alarm, your tabs won’t make an annoying sound when they come back.

How Snooze Tabs work
When you come across an interesting but lengthy article you don’t have time to read at the moment, you can snooze it. The Snooze Tabs add-on places a small alarm-bell icon in the top right of your browser. Click this button to snooze the tab — it’ll close itself and reopen at a later time.
