The Next Generation Session Manager; A Really Working Too Many Open Tabs Solution; And Your Browsing Notebook.

Image from store Tabs Outliner
Description from store Tabs Outliner is a fusion of tabs manager, session manager and an tree like personal information organizer. It’s also embed instruments that greatly help reduce open tabs count by making possible easily annotate and close-save open windows and tabs in their original context. And what’s more important - allow then working with there saved tabs practically in the same way as with open ones, thus greatly reducing resources usage. It also implements one of the best ways to handle crashed sessions - an unfortunate reality for users with a habit of accumulating hundreds of open tabs. = FEATURES AND CAPABILITIES = ☀ Complete Overview of all your open and saved tabs and windows, along with custom added notes and marks. ☀ Flexible and fully editable by Drag and Drop Tree - everything can be easily organized in logical hierarchies and delimited groups; unlike in other similar tools every node can be a parent for any other node, all items can be freely reordered to specify priority or importance. And all of this can be done not only with somewhere saved links - but with open tabs and windows! ☀ Close and save - just in one click you can preserve “in place” any tab or window in their original context and surrounding in the Tree. Saved windows and tabs can be freely mixed with those that are open. And as Tabs Outliner window is often active all the time, because it’s enormously useful to observe all currently active items, things saved in it does not fall out of the focus, as this often happen with other tools that save everything in some separate lists, so the actual action to close-save something to free resources become mentally much ease and really accomplished. ☀ Innovative Tabs Outlining And Organizing Features – you will be able annotate windows and tabs, add comments to them, summary of main ideas, to-do items. Text notes can be easily added in the Tree directly from web pages, just by Drag and Drop. ☀ Tree Style Tab feature - those who remember famous Firefox plugin with the same name immediately recognize inspired by it very useful way to relate tabs to one another. This feature relates newly opened tabs to the tab from which they were opened, which automatically builds strong context for all items and nicely visualize tabs relations. ☀ Crash Resistance and Restore Feature Done Right - no more hassles after browser crash or sudden system restart. No more being forced to all or nothing choice, like with the default Chrome crash restoration: to lose all of these “remind me of something” tabs, or to have again a completely unresponsive PC, if you load all of them back. This extension makes it possible to reopen only windows you need NOW, or even some individual tabs inside them, without losing others. Everything will be available to reopen anytime you decide and in the same context and place where they were crashed without consuming any resources, along with newly created tabs, as if you simply continue your session without any crash. ☀ Tabs List Exporter - easily export and share the annotated list of your tabs through Google Doc, Word, Evernote, email or some messenger. Hierarchies of windows can be exported individually simply by Drag & Drop. Or the whole tree can be saved as HTML file (by Ctrl-S in the main window). ☀ One Click Procrastination Stopper - Close-Save All currently open windows and tabs just in one click! Without losing all of the context and structure. Regain your attention and your PC responsiveness - momentary become ready again for some new work. = PAID FEATURES= Everything mentioned above can be used absolutely for free, but to support project there are some additional paid features that can be indefinitely enabled for a small one-time payment ($14.95) and an unobtrusive banner that show up once in few weeks to remind about their existence: ☀ Keyboard Shortcuts and Clipboard support which enables whole new dimension and speed for tree manipulations and editing by pro users. ☀ Access to frequent local backups that are saved every few minutes for restoring accidental edits or deletions or to review latest changes. ☀ Automatic Daily Backups to your Google Drive. Not only this secure your data this also enables possibilities to access your tree remotely from some other PC. This paid features are completely optional and application can be effectively used without enabling them. In additional that the tree is constantly save all changes locally, backups and data exports can be done manually at any time. It’s not required to pay anything for this.

Latest reviews

  • (2023-03-21) Sergio López: This is simply one of the best tab management extensions out there! Do not hesitate to try it or even buying the paid version to support the developer!
  • (2023-03-21) David Spector: User complaints receive no reply from developer. Product now seems dead.
  • (2023-03-19) Garin Zhang: I love TabOutliner but it won't under maintainance any more. I could not find an alternative like it and I think someone should continue developing in this way. so I built a similar one. So if anyone is searching for an alternative, please try "Link Map". It is free. I just put it on the Chrome Web Store. url: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/link-map/jappgmhllahigjolfpgbjdfhciabdnde
  • (2023-03-04) Facundo Rosa: La extensión no funciona. La instalé. La usé por un año. Ahora se rompió y perdí todo lo que había guardado.
  • (2023-03-03) Водзорд Нави: Лучшее расширение в Chrome Webstore. Горжусь тем, что Tabs Outliner создан соотечественником. Владислав, благодарю! Купил лицензию. Пора обновлять приложение! Chrome запустил Journeys.
  • (2023-02-27) Robson Martins: This is one of the most useful and functional extensions I've ever used. The author could create a product and allow you to save the information online as well as sync between devices, at a fair price, I would certainly pay and support, thanks and success to the author, God bless Ukraine.
  • (2023-02-22) Alex Saysithi: !! just want to remind everyone that the developer of this extension is Ukrainian and not everything is about you 😘 !! Lack of updates and support has been a factor for many years and there are many reviews here that have mentioned it as far back is 2018, consider doing your research before you download stuff from the internet. Rather than complain about Vladylsav not answering every email about everyone's individual issue about a project he's stated isn't his main priority, consider making your own extension, finding another one, or asking Google to pay Vladylsav, pick up this code, and develop it themselves so that he doesn't have to deal with y'all whinging and you can get your lil updates. Better yet, tell Russia to back down, stay in their lane, and let the Ukrainian peoples live in peace, so they can solve your tech support problems 🙃 Technology changes over time, things become incompatible, outdated, developers have their own lives to live - unless war robs them of it. Vladylsav I hope you're alright and thank you for making such a brilliant extension.
  • (2023-02-17) Sw Kim: 진짜 만족하며 사용중인데 외부 프로그램처럼 창을 띄우는 옵션 말고 좌측이나 우측에 브라우저 내부에 붙이는 옵션도 생겼으면 좋겠음.
  • (2023-02-13) Nora McLellan: I *used* to LOVE this extension. I recommended it to everyone. I paid for the pro version. But I started having issues with it last year. Somehow, it no longer recognized I was a paid user. I tried contact support, but didn't get a response. I thought, I've used this for well over 5 years and love it. I'll just pay again. So I became a paid user again. Now, I'm still having issues, and it has "forgotten" I'm a paid user yet again. I am very sad to lose this extension, I really loved it. But it's no longer being supported or maintained. Don't invest your time in learning to use this, and definitely don't pay for the pro version.
  • (2023-02-06) 涵姜: 每当浏览器的历史记录过多的时候,会响应缓慢直到崩溃
  • (2023-02-04) Josh Sorensen: it is great, but could be better. like others i would like it if i could make a saved copy of "just the tabs currently open and not saved+closed" in addition to the version that includes the saved+closed tabs. also, recently it has been having issues with errors. the errors that appear are things like "Unchecked runtime.lastError: No tab with id: 2308." and many more "no tab with id: #". i don't know if this is related to a combination of extensions that are incompatible or just a bug that happened after chrome updated and the extension didn't update. either way there is room for improvements. i still like it though. the setup is nice and has good color schemes and useful ideas like naming window sessions. if they fix the part where it glitches and on the tabs outliner when you try and open a saved tab/window it doesn't work/open at all and added a button to save "only the open tabs in a window without saving the closed and saved tabs" it would be 5 stars. also, to anyone having problems losing the saved windows/tabs due to it not functioning when you try to open saved tabs there is a trick to get them to work properly. the trick is: step 1. open a new window step 2. drag the saved window with all the tabs in it into the new window on tabs outliner. step 3. if you haven't opened/maximized the list of tabs within the window that is not functioning, do it step 4. click the "delete" button on the "failed to open window". by doing so all the saved tabs within will be directly transferred to the already functioning new window. step 5. open the saved tabs directly
  • (2023-02-02) Skywalker Studio: The extension seems to be broken.
  • (2023-01-10) Aleksandr Romanov: Окно приложения не открывается. Судя по счетчику на иконке приложение работает но окна нет.
  • (2022-12-23) Chronical Mass: Used this years ago, decided to come back, finally got rid of 1000 tabs and organised 300 I been keeping, no wonder it was so hard to go through before :) Must of overlooked the ctrl-s to save the tree back in the day, always gonna save the treee. Don't seem to be having any issues with Brave other than tested the donate option to try see what the price was but get errors as it can't understand that your logged in. If wasn't logged in wouldn't be able to write this reivew, just keep the windows closed from the bottom left box in the tabsoutliner tree page and you can't really go wrong, as long as your backed up, your not losing your pages, probably gonna have to make a script with ahk to back it up every day since can't donate as of Brave, it's a great extention, luckily the free features are amazing, at least the developer was kind enough to let us have the notes function.
  • (2022-12-20) Sean: I've been using this extension for almost a year and it's been an absolute game changer for me. I've spent weeks searching and trying out several tab managers and IMO this one is far superior. I can't recommend it enough. That being said, I have NOT purchased a license yet as all the recent reviews I've seen in regard to the paid features haven't been functioning as they should. After very brief surfing, this may be partially due to the need to convert from manifest v2 to v3 requirements before the end of the year. I have not experienced ANY issues or hiccups using the free version and I'd like to keep it that way, which is why I'm refraining from purchasing a license until the next update. I feel it's also important to recognize this is a solo-dev project (as far as I can tell). I understand and agree with his decisions on funding the development of TO. However, my main concern is that the people who do upgrade and help fund this project appear to be left in the dust when bugs do arise, considering it's updated infrequently and support responses seem to be severely delayed. This inevitably leads to frustrated users, which is so unfortunate because this extension is truly amazing at what it does. My guess is Vlad is a full-time software dev and doesn't have as much time as we'd like him to spend on supporting this extension regularly, but this process isn't sustainable to allow TO to reach its full potential. I look forward to the next update and will pay close attention to the recent reviews, as I'll be ready to upgrade once the current issues clear up. I was literally in the process of purchasing today until I saw how many low star reviews were posted recently regarding the paid version. TL;DR: TO is absolutely worth $15 when it functions as expected, but given the sporadic updates and delayed support it's difficult to recommend purchasing a license when there's no assurance it won't stop working a week after and you'll be stuck with a bug-ridden extension looking for alternatives. The free version works just fine and is still an exceptional extension that will transform your web browsing experience. Should be 5/5, but for the above reasons, 4/5
  • (2022-12-20) Artemi Lebedev: How to see only active tabs and windows?
  • (2022-12-09) Dmitry Kovalov: Замечательно! Только единственный минус, что нельзя закрепить к краю каждого окна, чтобы для каждого окна можно было видеть свои вкладки и не нужно было переключаться между окном браузера и расширением. Так же со временем понял, очень не хватает группирования вкладок не только по окнам, но и группирования всех окон по сессиям. Если хром часто падает, то в Tab Outliner образуется большое количество старых сессий, дублирующих текущую - востановленную. Приходится по всему списку проходиться, каждое окно с вкладками сворачивать и тогда закрывать нажатием на иконку корзины. Может быть этот процесс можно облегчить и другим способом? Или избежать бесконечного дублирования одних и тех же вкладок/окон. Если у кого расширение перестало открываться 2022.11, то мне помогло вот это (совет из комментариев) - "Oh figured it out. I just right clicked TO Icon > Options > General Tab > and unchecked these options: Open Tabs Outliner window on Chrome startup. Open Tabs Outliner in the same position and size where it was last closed. Restore saved windows in the original position and size. Then clicked the TO icon agan and it popped up just fine."
  • (2022-11-15) Martin: Would give it 5 stars (not 3), but half the time it just fails to launch when clicking on the icon. Not sure how much longer I'm going to keep trying.
  • (2022-11-07) Александр: В один прекрасний момент воно просто перестало відкриватися і не було доступу до збережених вікон, нічого не допомагало клікай як хочеш воно не працює. Удалив, встановив знов: тоді відкрилось але вже нічого збереженого не залишилось. Негативний досвід, не рекомендую, тепер треба знову відшуковувати всі втрачені сайти, які зазвичай були постійно відкритими.
  • (2022-11-01) Josh Yu: Even as a paid customer, I got no response after reaching out to their email address twice. Buyers beware.
  • (2022-11-01) Rocky: Utterly useless and non-functioning. There is no extension, or it simply does NOT operate since upon clicking on it, nothing happens. It simply does not respond. The only other option available is to right click which only offers `Tabs outline'. All this does is bring you back to the Chrome extensions page. This piece of garbage is fake. and utterly useless. The developer makes the excuse that it's a bug. Folks, the developer is a scam artist. He has deliberately created this problem so that he can con you into `buying' the upgrade. Notice how he doesn't offer any resolution.
  • (2022-10-31) George Zeigler: Feature set is pretty good, but **** Documentation is HORRIBLE *** **** THEY DO NOT RESPOND TO SUPPORT REQUESTS *** It's easy to see they have a GOOD CODER, but aside from that, they are a REALLY TERRIBLE AND UNPROFESSSIONAL COMPANY. As an example, just look at all the grammatical mistakes they make in the Chrome Webstore where they are trying to get you to buy their product. Now just imagine what happens once they have your money. There's NO STANDARD OF PROFESSINALISM. They just don't care. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU STAY AWAY from this product, unless you feel like you really need it. And since there are so many other FREE TAB MANAGERS out there, WHY WOULD YOU SET YOURSELF UP FOR FRUSTRATION BY trying to learn a product with horrible documentation and no technical support? BEWARE AND STAY AWAY.
  • (2022-10-25) I've only superficially looked at this extension. I've opted against it the second I saw that it doesn't import Chrome's native window names. My biggest problem is not organizing or finding tabs (Chrome's native tab search and tab grouping is good enough for my needs), but a keyboard shortcut to find windows by name. For almost two years now Chrome has added a feature to name windows, but this tool doesn't display them, instead has its own and incompatible window naming scheme.
  • (2022-10-19) Jasper Lieber: been using it for years, very helpful -- i do wish there was a simple way to delete all crashed views, though this post gives a work-around for that problem: https://iam.thunder.spb.ru/posts/2021/02/07/tabs-outliner-and-cleanup-crashed-sessions
  • (2022-10-13) yourfriendcaspian: This extension is an absolute must have. No other extension I've seen does what this one does. If you are like me and are prone to having so many tabs open that it stops showing the number of tabs in the tab box and just shows a this smiley face :D then this is the extension for you. I haven't found another extension that handles tabs like this does.
  • (2022-10-07) Shawn Sung: 标签页多了就偶尔会卡,求优化呀
  • (2022-10-05) James Heck: It is a good extension if the customer support wasn't awful. It has a bad bug, where it stops displaying the save tabs tree (issue seems to correlate with certain Chrome updates). To get it to redisplay the tree, one has to uninstall and reinstall it. I paid $15 for it, had to reinstall the extension to get the tree to show again. Now it does not recognize my paid more. And no response from customer support. There is no way to enter a license into it. Money down the drain!
  • (2022-10-01) Ryan Blakeslee: I used to use this a lot, I paid the $15 for cloud sync and backup. Then, because they link the paid version to the BROWSER ID(!!) and not the username or email address, a simple reinstall of windows, and I lose my paid status. The publisher doesn't respond to any requests for over 4 years now, I've been waiting for an answer across 6+ emails. So, Don't fall into the same trap I did. If a publisher uses browser ID, it's basically throwing money away.
  • (2022-09-17) Gene Ivanoff: 1. Outliner Window doesn't open anymore after I worked with 2 monitors (2x 1920x1080) and then restarted my laptop and opened chrome without external monitors (laptop display is 1920x1080): _generated_background_page.html:1 Error handling response: TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'height') at chrome-extension://eggkanocgddhmamlbiijnphhppkpkmkl/background.js:1127:49 Unchecked runtime.lastError: Invalid value for bounds. Bounds must be at least 50% within visible screen space. 2. Every now and then links in some windows in the Tabs Outliner don't open by left click any more. Closing or killing chrome didn't help. What helped: backup (settings > backup) for every non-responding window/group in Tabs Outliner: drag a new window/group (from the menu-popup below) just over the non-responding window/group at the same hierarchy level move the old non-responding window/group under this empty window/group delete the old non-responding window/group (it must be expanded (!), otherwise all links in it are gone) ->voilà!
  • (2022-09-01) Luniul: При каждом открытии окна плагина дублируются вкладки, объединенные в группы. Множатся и множатся...
  • (2022-08-27) Vinoo Samuel: I don't understand some of the features. I saved a Window with 5 tabs. I later opened it and browsed for a while. In the course of browsing I opened some google search and other tabs. Then I closed the browser. Next day, when I tried opening my saved Window, it opened up with all the other tabs I had opened while browsing. Why would it auto-save my session into an already saved window and mess it up? How do I prevent this from happening. Also, why does it keep saying Windows crashed for each session that I close? I close my browser perfectly correctly. Why does your extension say the window crashed? Lastly, I think the current session should come right on top under the words 'Current Session' instead of right at the bottom. Why should I see some old sessions under the 'Current Session' title? Many of these small things make your otherwise excellent app extremely confusing.
  • (2022-08-21) Florian Gaul (furomin): Too bad, I was about to purchase the pro version for 15 bucks, checking out with PayPal it said "VAT-ID Error, cannot check out"! Unpiad version is crashing on me with 353 Tabs splitted over 7 windows. Hope this review helps someone! Now on to checking out the competitors products...
  • (2022-07-30) Dr. Trustmeonthisone: Restoring a closed window will load all the tabs at once. There is no option for lazy tab loading, so rate limits and hanging/crashing is guaranteed with larger windows. You can choose a single tab to restore from a closed window, but there is no way to easily navigate through the closed tabs to manually load them slowly other than using the mouse even with the paid version.
  • (2022-07-29) Amir B: Terrible UI/UX
  • (2022-07-16) Night Mares: Best addon in this area so far, but since few weeks sometimes it locks itself, and double click on tree-view doesn't open saved windows, no idea if it started to conflict with newest chrome, or something else has happened, please look into solving this issue.
  • (2022-07-15) Sean Vikoren: Hours of effort organizing my life, gone in one second. If you have a lot of unresolved self-hate, this is the plugin for you.
  • (2022-07-07) Davi Bartav: It's nice, but it's doesn't work always... Sometimes, like now, the extension doesn't even open. I tried to restart Chrome, but it doesn't work too. What can I do?
  • (2022-06-20) Decio Yokota: Impressionante. Precisa ler as instruções com cuidado e entender a como mudar sua maneira de gerenciar suas abas, mas é muito poderoso.
  • (2022-06-18) Caloy Cabrera: awesome extension!
  • (2022-06-18) Will: I loved the idea of this app and immediately paid for the upgrade. I found it because I have tried to switch to using my PC primarily with a keyboard in the first place, so not having that feature was a dealbreaker, but the rest of the feature set is amazing to make it worth it. 14.95 is pretty steep though, considering premium apps like Nova Launcher only charges a few bucks for premium, and that app is by far much more complex than this. This is just a fancy skin on top of a tree data structure. However, and this is a big issue for me, is that the only way to back up your settings seems to be through Google Drive. I installed this through the Chrome store on Edge, and Edge does not support the Google Drive API. At the very least, if you insist on doing it this way, add in support for OneDrive in Edge so that Edge users can also back up their data. However, it would be highly preferable if you'd give us a portable license key so we can enter it ourselves on whatever browser we want instead of relying on the email address for the logged in browser session. This is the only reason for 1 starring this app, because for something so useful and expensive, not having this functionality is a slap in the face to everyone who paid for it ($14.95!).
  • (2022-06-17) Mister Zi Cold: Великолепное расширение. Не знаю как бы без него жил со своими 700+ вкладок, между которыми я постоянно переключаюсь. Не пожалел отдать деньги за такую работу.
  • (2022-05-24) Kasim Tasdemir: That is a great tool. The only annoying thing for me is, it does not save Chrome's builtin tab groups (or does it save?)
  • (2022-05-14) Justin Reinhart: Without an easy way to purge old window history, I have found the extension too much trouble to use. The popup window fills up with garbage closed windows that were closed years ago. It is far too much trouble to purge them by hand, especially as the window gets exponentially slower the more garbage it collects. If the extension offered an automated way to discard old crashed windows after 90+ days that would help. Also if there was a different area for recovering crashed windows than currently open windows, that also would help.
  • (2022-05-13) Svyat Russkiy: these guys are f*** C*** their service kept crashing i bought it twice I think they have it out for me or something becuase I cant reactivate my account for some reason.
  • (2022-05-11) Xalomon: If you try to close a window with Chrome's History>Recently Closed feature it will recover the closed tabs with the window, and their pages reachable from the Back's button. If you try this with Tabs Outliner the pages will only restore their urls, causing all the Back buttons of them to be disabled, as their story was lost.
  • (2022-05-05) Ben Hurwitz: As someone else mention, there's always room for improvement, but this extension is totally awesome. If you have a tab hoarding problem (like me) and don't want to solve that problem (like me), or you just like to sort all your research tabs into clear, well-defined groups (also like me), this extension is definitely for you. There is a learning curve for sure, but it's totally worth getting used to it. I personally didn't find the paid mode worth it BUT (HUGE BUT) I would purchase the paid mode again to support development anyway. I in fact already did that when my computer died and I couldn't recover the key. Still worth it. If nothing else, the developer is Ukrainian. ALSO, because everyone seems to not know this, you can manually backup and restore your entire tree without paid mode. See <https://www.naturalborncoder.com/miscellaneous/2021/06/08/tabs-outliner-backup-and-restore/>. Donate for the paid mode anyway.

  • (2022-04-13) Tim Jones: Can't live without this extension. Awesome tool.
  • (2022-04-12) User Name: Хуже и хуже с каждым разом. ПОльзуюсь вот уже 5, наверное, лет. И со временем функционал урезается, интерфейс не меняется, оптимизация не проводится и, к сожалению, ухудшается производительность. Я понимаю, что хочется заработать, однако что мне не понятно, почему стоило для этого убирать адекватную систему бэкапа, где ты хотя бы раз в год сам сможешь вытащить файл и вставить куда надо, почему бы не оптимизировать немного функционал, чтобы не перегружался браузер? Жаль, но ничего, уже есть альтернативы и причём неплохие.

    I have a paid-mode license key; however, I cannot instruct the app to validate it because I am not signed in to Chrome.

    Paid Customer on latest I am not having issues bringing up Tabs Outliner via native Chrome extension shortcut I setup, clicking it, etc as others are having. However, after making an Chrome shortcut to the extension (as app clicked), my Restore/Activate no longer works (keyboard shortcut, clicking it from the context menu, double-clicking an entry, etc). To understand the context, I made the shortcut app, tried that without the extension on in Chrome, it didn't work and the client blocked it because it did not deliver any js resources (suggesting the landing page for the extension does not work like other sites or extensions I have done this before with). Oddly, if the Tabs Outliner extension is already enabled, opening the shortcut app loads up just fine. Since my restore/etc functionality stopped working, I thought it was just a limitation of using it in this app form (which shouldn't have any issues since the extension is running but whatever). To verify this, I shut down and deleted the shortcut app, configured Tabs to start with Chrome again, restarted Chrome. But the restore/activation/etc functionality still has not returned. I also re-ran this test without any other extensions or apps enabled. Still have the same problem.

    I've been using this for over a year and it is pretty awesome, and I want to pay and unlock the additional features, but every time I try to pay, it does not work (does not allow me to pay). Is the developer still supporting this app? Is it possible to pay? I doubt I'm the only one having this problem...

  • (2022-10-14, v:1.4.141) Wesley Zuidema: Paid features became disabled after reinstalling
    I had the apparently widespread issue of Tabs Outliner no longer opening. I managed to solve this issue by removing it from Chrome and then re-adding it, but that locked me out of my premium features (which is apparently also a common issue). This is of course less than ideal. Despite the issues I'm facing on this account, I should mention that I have a secondary Google account that has no problems whatsoever: it still opens the extension window, and I still have access to the paid features - because I bought licenses for both accounts.
  • (2022-10-08, v:1.4.141) Harry B Morton III: Tabs Outliner Window no longer opens
    When I select the Icon in the Chrome tool bar Tabs Outliner Window no longer opens. I have no way to edit and reorder tabs in the different windows that I have open or plan to open. I can not create a new window to move tabs into.Managing my tabe from the windows themselves is a real PITA! I see that others are having the same issues. Is this plugin no longer supported? Payed members have a right to know!
  • (2022-10-06, v:1.4.141) Anatolii Bakhtin: Extension on your phone

  • (2022-10-03, v:1.4.141) Nathaniel Herman: I can't open Tabs Outliner Window
    Hi, I just updated Chrome because websites were starting to say I have too old of a version of chrome. The TO extension button shows 3 open tabs, so I'm assuming a background tab is open and working. But when I click the TO extension button, the main TO window doesn't open. This is terrible b/c I need to get work done today and I use TO all day every day. If it helps, I have multiple monitors and I tried to follow this thread from the chrome webstore support section for Tabs Outliner which at first seemed to apply: "yea I had that problem. I figured out it was a problem with the saved window position being saved incorrectly and chrome refuses to make it. So open up the console for the background window and go to the application tab, then go to the local storage section on the left. look for the value "MainViewLastClosedTime" and change the values in there to be reasonable. I just set everything to 0 and when it created the window, it tas tiny, but there were no more errors. Posted by Eric Gardner - 2 weeks ago" I didn't understand exactly what he meant so I tried different permutations of the following two values: for MainViewLastClosedTime: 1664793953605 - the original 0 - (I tried 0 b/c I didn't know whether maybe he meant zero this value as well?) 1664796427 1664796487 for MainViewLastClosedPos: {"x":2,"y":430,"w":400,"h":1026,"iw":400,"ih":1026} - the original {"x":0,"y":0,"w":0,"h":0,"iw":400,"ih":1026} {"x":0,"y":0,"w":0,"h":0,"iw":0,"ih":0} and nothing work, each time stopping and restarting Tabs Outliner. At one point I even restarted the OS. I'm really hoping you can help me. Thanks, Nate Herman (paying customer)

    Tabs Outliner session used to open to allow me to manage the hundreds of categorised tabs and sessions, however now it doesn't load and the only way to see my history of tabs is to open the extension backup file and open them 1 by 1. Any new browsing is also not loading in the extension and not available for restore/recovery.

  • (2022-09-17, v:1.4.141) I am 1fdp: Paid Mode no longer works after chrome update
    It seems that Tab Outliner now fail to verify the email associated with a licence. It always ask to buy a licence even if you already bought one. I was considering to buy another one for my work account, but that + the fact that there is no way to switch between multiple account/session easily makes me consider switching to BrainTool. I enjoyed Tab Outliner. I've been using for at least 4 years, but last update was in April 2021 & I didn't saw many new features coming in, while there is room for lots improvements requested by paid users in here and in Tabs Outliner Support Group (which is abandoned). I know that the developper in charge of this project lives in Ukraine, so I can't blame him. I hope he and his family are safe and sound, and I wish war to end soon enough so he can keep working on this amazing tool. Chrome Version 105.0.5195.127 (Official Build) (64-bit)

  • (2022-09-10, v:1.4.141) Charles Roberto Canato: Under a RDP session, clicking does not work
    This is a great extension. The only real glitch I've found so far is that, when I connect to my Windows machine, where Tabs Outliner is there running, it does not answer to SOME clicking, be it on a group or on a tab title - but this does not happen on every group or tab (mostly on previously crashed ones), some of them can be opened as I was at the local machine. It is not frozen! I can scroll, use other browser windows, etc. It's just like clicking on Tabs Outliner window is not captured. This is using Remmina or rdesktop from different Linux machines, also the same problem from Remote Desktop Client on Android. Of course, this is not a showstopper, just something weird.

  • (2022-08-12, v:1.4.141) Jay Dgaoi: Delete confirm button
    Hi! I love this extension, and it would be great if there was a confirmation button on whether to delete tabs after you tap on the purple trash can. I've deleted 100s of tabs at once by accident before, and that's an unpleasant time.
  • (2022-08-03, v:1.4.141) Arpad Orfi: Tabs Outliner window does not pop up - ?too large database?
    I use TabsOutliner on my Windows 8.1 PC. I also use it on my Windows 10 work PC. On the latter there are no issues. On my Win 8.1 machine there were also no issues until lately. The problem is that when I click on the extension icon, nothing happens; the TabsOutliner window does not pop up. On my Win10 machine it works. Beside the op.system difference, there is one other difference that I suspect can cause the issue: on the problematic PC, the database size is larger, it is 1793 kb, containing around 5000 lines. ¿Could this be a problem, I mean, if the database grows this large, could it cause this issue? ¿Would it be OK to uninstall the extension, then import back the whole database by dragging the whole tree structure – or I would rather import only a part of it? Thanks, Arpad
  • (2022-07-19, v:1.4.141) Larry Smith: Malfunctions after Chrome reset
    For other reasons I had to reset Chrome. Now TO doesn't work properly as previously. If I click to suspend or redisplay a subtree, it just affects the head of the subtree, only that head is suspended. If I try to open a subtree only the head appears and not in a new window as previously. I tried uninstall/reinstall several times. TO used to work wonderfully. What is wrong? Somehow uninstall/reinstall persists the problem. How can I make a fresh, virgin new installation? Thanks for help and for a great extension.

I can export the list and the links are there, but in TO double-clicking doesn't work. Shift-click (and Ctrl-click) works as expected. My browser is at the latest version as of a couple hours ago and I did an extension update through Chrome as well.
