What is Detachable Tabs or Tab Detaching/Tab Tearing in Firefox?

Detachable Tabs is a Firefox feature that enables users to create a new window using your existing tabs. All you have to do is to click on the tab and drag and drop it outside the current window. You do not have to leave your current window while doing this. Users can organize their tabs in different windows.
