Love this extension so much, since I'm much more of a fan of vertical tabs than horizontal ones. I do wish there was a way to expand and shrink tab groups though. Right now the tab shelf list only takes the state of the tab group in the vertical bar so you still have to expand or shrink it there. Not sure if that's a limitation of the sidebar API, though. Edit: New version let's you expand and shrink tab groups now so it's perfect :)
