Firefox experimental features let you customize colors, view two tabs at once

  • Firefox tests two new features: color customization and split-screen tabs

It's been nearly two years since Mozilla launched their Firefox experiments program called Test Pilot. This feature tries to make comparing items easier.

Either way, Color is nowhere near the customizability of the old Firefox "full themes", which also allowed theme developers to adjust tab size, tab width, tab and toolbar positions, and many other options.

These features are pretty cool, but Windows 10 already offers its own native snapping and themes feature.

One of the great things about Firefox is Mozilla's willingness to experiment.


The new Side View feature, which can be installed as part of the Test Pilot program, makes it easy to split the window with another open tab.

Give Firefox whatever color scheme you want, then share your new look with friends. So, people can browse two different websites simultaneously without the need to switch tabs.

The Color experiment comes just as Mozilla has retired support for "full themes" with the release of Firefox 57. This helps majorly in comparing two products on an online marketplace or checking flight fare prices on two different webpages.

If you've been using Firefox for a while you'll probably know about its Test Pilot programme where it tries out new features and sometimes they graduate and become built-in features of the browser; features that have graduated include Screenshots and the Activity Stream. You can use Test Pilot on your computer running Windows, Linux, and macOS.
