About Web Browsers Summary:

"Tab Scope is a Firefox add-on that lets you preview the contents of a tab without actually activating it. A small pop-up window, containing a real-time image of the respective webpage, is displayed whenever the mouse cursor is placed over a title in the browser's Tab Bar. What really makes Tab Scope unique, however, is its advanced features. These include the ability to navigate through the pop-ups as if they were standard webpages. Common buttons such as Back, Forward, Refresh, and Stop are provided as well as Zoom. As if that wasn't enough, you can even click on webpage links within the pop-ups themselves."

Publisher's Description:

"Tab Scope shows a popup when mouseover on a tab. You can see the real-time preview of the tab contents and navigate (Back / Forward / Reload / Stop) through the popup. Click the glass icon or right-click on a preview to toggle two preview sizes, which can be configured with [Options]. Wheeling mouse on a preview to scroll the page or frame."
