ExtraTabs2 is a gadget to add a number of tabs which provide links to useful Toolserver tools and related Special pages. It provides different tabs depending on the namespace of the page the user is on. Note that in the standard Commons skin ("Vector"), the additional links appear in the dropdown menu next to the search bar, accessible by clicking the arrow icon (MediaWiki Vector skin action arrow.svg). The gadget is activated by visiting Preferences and ticking the "Extratabs2" box. The script itself can be found at MediaWiki:Gadget-ExtraTabs2.js.
