• TabFS

    TabFS is a browser extension that mounts your browser tabs as a filesystem on your computer.
    Each of your open tabs is mapped to a folder.
    The files inside a tab’s folder directly reflect (and can control) the state of that tab in your browser.
    Example: the url.txt, text.txt, and title.txt files inside a tab’s folder, which tell me those live properties for that tab

    This gives you a ton of power, because now you can apply all the existing tools on your computer that already know how to deal with files — terminal commands, scripting languages, point-and-click explorers, etc — and use them to control and communicate with your browser.

    Now you don’t need to code up a browser extension from scratch every time you want to do anything. You can write a script that talks to your browser in, like, a melange of Python and bash, and you can save it as a single ordinary file that you can run whenever, and it’s no different from scripting any other part of your computer.
