As suggested by Ciavash:

As I see it, this is so that developers could programatically react to the content type of a tab.

It can be useful when you want to do something based on type of the content. If you want to add something to the image viewer for example, you need to know that the content is an image, then do something with it.

In my add-on, I had to look for "resource://gre/res/TopLevelImageDocument.css" in the link tag to find out that an image is being displayed.

This will work correctly on mobile, yes?
Comment 4 Matteo Ferretti [:zer0] [:matteo] 2012-07-19 15:04:52 PDT
`tabs` module doesn't work on mobile at all, so I'm not sure I got the question. Mobile should supports the `document.contentType`, so as soon as the `tabs` module will works on Mobile, that properties will be work as well (along `url` and `title` properties).

if I misunderstood the question, could you be more explicit?
