I frequently find myself losing track of which tab has a particular site or dashboard that I need for my daily work. I routinely have upwards of 20-30 tabs open at one time.

Does anyone know of a browser add on or tab manager that will help?

Ideally, if I open a new tab and start typing a URL that's already open in an existing tab, I'd like the tab to take focus, or change color to alert me where it is.

Opera, Safari, Netscape Navigator, wget?? – Cam Jackson Jul 8 '11 at 5:24
Opera allows you to store your tabs in groups and I think there was a chrome addon that does something very similar to what you want, but I can't remember the name. – Michael K Jul 8 '11 at 7:48

Firefox 4 and above will let you know if a tab is already open in the same process if you start typing in the Awesomebar and will let you switch to it.
