Description from store Tired of searching through squished tab icons to find that one tab you are sure is there? With TabMerger you can simplify this clutter while greatly increasing productivity in a highly organized and customizable fashion! With a single click, you can have all your tabs in a single place, where you can then re-arrange them into appropriate groups, delete extra/unwanted tabs, customize group colors, and so much more. All tabs that are merged into TabMerger are stored internally for you to use at a later time, even when you close the browser window. Lots of analytics are provided to keep you informed about the state of your tabs. In addition to reducing the heavy tab clutter, TabMerger significantly reduces the memory usage of your machine as on average each chrome tab can use 25MB-100MB of RAM. These add up quickly if left open and can significantly slow down your machine, but with TabMerger you simply have a list of tabs which can be re-opened when you really need them. TabMerger is also Open Source (https://github.com/lbragile/TabMerger), under GPLv3 license, with a growing community of passionate users who aim to make the product better every day. This guarantees that TabMerger is safe, secure, and up to par with user's recommendations/needs. —————————— 😍 FEATURES 😍 —————————— ✅ Global 🔹 Walkthrough Tutorial: Helps users who need details clarified. 🔹 Filters: Allows users to search for tabs using "smart" filters to quickly find that buried tab. Can be used to search by group name for groups of tabs or directly for a tab using its title. 🔹 Dark Mode: Toggle switch to active/deactivate TabMerger's dark mode. In dark mode all text is light and background is dark providing high contrast. 🔹 Print PDF: Generates a print friendly PDF document consisting of basic information and hyperlinks to the user's tabs. This is great when the user simply wants to share their accumulated tab links with others who might not have TabMerger installed. 🔹 Open All: Opens every tab from every group in the order that they appear. 🔹 Delete All: Deletes all the tabs from every group (also, deletes all the groups leaving only one default group). 🔹 Export/Import JSON: Saves TabMerger's current configuration as a JSON file. This is useful to restore information directly into TabMerger (using "Import JSON") or sharing with others so that they can be on the same page. 🔹 Syncing: Ability to use TabMerger across your devices by uploading its configuration using the browser's built in "sync" mechanism. 🔹 Undo Action: Accidently deleted a group or tab? No worries, you have a chance to undo that mishap. 🔹 Add Group: Allows the user to add groups where tabs can be sorted accordingly. ❕ Note that the total number of tabs merged into TabMerger are displayed at the top of the sidebar and in the extension icon (if enabled in settings). ✅ Groups 🔹 Move Group: Provides drag and drop operation on a group-level. This allows the user to quickly sort their tabs based on which groups they are in. 🔹 Lock/Unlock Group: Locked groups will never be deleted/removed to prevent unwanted data loss. You can always unlock a group by clicking on the lock again. 🔹 Star/Unstar Group: Have a group of tabs which you really like? Star them to automatically move them to the top of TabMerger's page and lock them. This group can then be unstarred at any time. 🔹 Edit Group Title: Allows the user to edit the group's title. This is useful to name groups meaningful names according to the tabs inside. 🔹 Pick Group Color: Provides customization for the background color of the group through an easy and intuitive color picker. Additionally, preset colors are provided to ease the color picking process. 🔹 Merge ALL: Merges all the tabs in your current window and displays them in TabMerger at the corresponding group. 🔹 Merge LEFT: Merges all the tabs in your current window to the left of the current active tab and displays them in TabMerger at the corresponding group. 🔹 Merge RIGHT: Merges all the tabs in your current window to the right of the current active tab and displays them in TabMerger at the corresponding group. 🔹 Hide Tabs: Hides every tab in the given group, these are still tallied and "visible" to TabMerger (just not to the user). Useful when you want to save space for less relevant groups. 🔹 Open Group: Opens all the tabs in the corresponding group ordered as they appear. 🔹 Delete Group: Deletes all the tabs in the corresponding group, along with the group item itself - as long as the group is not locked. ❕ Note that each group has a "Created" timestamp to let users know how old each group is. Additionally, each group title has a counter indicating the number of tabs in the group. ✅ Tabs Each tab is moveable within its own group and can: 🔹 Drag & drop from the URL address bar lock icon directly into TabMerger. 🔹 Deleted via the "x" button. 🔹 Be moved from one group to another using the "grid" icon. 🔹 Opened by LEFT clicking on the title. 🔹 Edited by MIDDLE clicking on the title. 🔹 Pinned/unpinned inside of TabMerger which persists when the tab is restored. ✅ Settings Here users can do the following: 🔹 Change the default group title and color. 🔹 Include a list of websites which they prefer not to have merged into TabMerger. 🔹 Decide if they want the extension badge icon to display relevant group/tab information. 🔹 Enable merging of tabs as TabMerger is opened. 🔹 Have merged tabs remain open or close them. 🔹 Set merging behavior for pinned tabs. 🔹 Choose whether restored tabs are kept in TabMerger or not. ✅ Context Menu If you right click anywhere on an active tab's page, you can access extra TabMerger functionality. These include the Merge ALL Tabs, Merge LEFT Tabs, and Merge RIGHT Tabs features described above, as well as the following. 🔹 Open TabMerger: In case you want to simply open the TabMerger extension page without merging any tabs in the current window. 🔹 Merge ONLY: to simply merge the current active tab, without touching the rest. 🔹 Merge EXCLUDING: to merge all tabs other than the current active tab. 🔹 Exclude site from TabMerger's visibility: Updates the appropriate settings field with this tab's link. This can be seen as a shortcut to avoid having to type the link from memory (or copy/pasting) if the tab is already open. 🔹 Instructions: Direct link to TabMerger's instructions page (this one). 🔹 Contact Us: Direct link to TabMerger's contact page, incase a user has any questions or inquiries. ✅ Keyboard Shortcuts TabMerger additionally has keyboard shortcuts for each important feature. For example, to merge all your tabs, a user can simply press "Alt + A" on any window. Each user can manually set these shortcuts at edge://extensions/shortcuts. 🌟 There are many more features that we plan to implement and we would love to incorporate any feedback provided by our users. ———————————————— 🔐 PRIVACY & SECURITY 🔐 ———————————————— Your privacy and security is of utmost concern for us at TabMerger.

  • (2021-02-25) n: Works exactly as advertised, you can add tabs to groups and more, and you can close a whole group all you have too do is create the group with the tabs and then close the whole window, and the groups will be saved but closed, and you delete the group later. you can also sync customize the groups and search/filer groups
  • (2021-01-24) Jianhua: (1) it only open the group's tabs, not close them - in case I have a big group and what to close them, I have to kill them one by one. (2) Do not operate on pinned tabs which why they got pinned. (3) combine (1) & (2) above, it's much simpler that I just want to switch to view different groups, also assuming there is a "default" group. so that I can go back there. (4) It's difficult to add existing tabs from "merge" operation. Using an menu to add current tab is much simple and convenient. (5) Suggestion: Look at Firefox's "Simple Tab Group" which is the ideal one and the best so far I've seen and that keeps me using FireFox. I searched almost all tab groups/managers, none is good and I don't want to sign in to somewhere just because I need a group manager.
