A fascinating idea. Viewing your browser tabs as part of the filesystem, allowing you to use standard Unix filesystem tools to view and manipulate the tab contents. The Unix "everything is a file" concept is still a powerful one.

@sohkamyung it's indeed a fascinating idea with lots of extensions (no pun intended). It should include bookmarks and a way to archive current state (content) of the tabs (maybe it already does this).

This could replace the bookmarking/sync system with something more flexible/private as well as it would allow one to use their favorite file sync system to sync tabs/bookmarks.

@sohkamyung My first thought before reading the article was how cool an idea that was, but then I pondered its actual utility in my life and couldn't find any day to day :-(
Perhaps a writer of chrome/ff extensions would find it very useful though.
