Chrome gets a Firefox Panorama (formerly Tab Candy) extension

I’m trying out the new Firefox 4 beta 5 today which has an interesting way to manage tabs (actually, I think this feature was in the previous beta too). I am still not sure whether being able to manipulate so many tabs to easily is a big productivity win (I try keep my open tabs to a minimum, lest I completely ruin what passes for my productivity) but the feature is a very cool one nevertheless. If you haven’t seen Panorama in action before, here it is (it used to be called Tab Candy):
