Featuring: - Open tabs filtering (searching), based on its title or its URL address. - Super quick tabs navigation using the mouse wheel scroll, when Tabman is open and your cursor is over its window. - Tabs switching using keyboard's UP and DOWN keys! (when Tabman is open). - Drag items to reorder your open tabs. Tabman is extremely useful when having many open tabs. It enables to easily navigate between endless amount of open tabs, so you don't need to change your browsing behavior. Once using Tabman, Chrome will never be the same without it! * To switch tabs using the mouse wheel, Tabman should be opened and the mouse cursor should be on its window/popup dialog.

  • (2021-03-05) Newtomic: The main reason to install and test this one was this "tabs navigation using the mouse wheel scroll", and then I install and I wasn't understand how it works, so I read a bit more "when Tabman is open and your cursor is over its window" LoooL, that's near useless, for that it's better just use the Keyboard's Shortcut's <Ctrl>+<Tab> and <Ctrl>+<Shift>+<Tab>. And wait it need's to be in 'dock' mode, like I said, near-useless.
  • (2020-11-21) Good Fluttershy: Ставлю вам лайк, это именно то, что мне было нужно
  • (2020-07-18) Alexander Vynogradov: Works in Google Chrome and Edge Chromium flawlessly! Makes it so much easier to find tabs if you have a many of them open! Also works with multiple windows of every browser individually.
  • (2020-03-04) Alex: I always have many tabs opened and this extension is must have!
  • (2020-02-04) Dennis Moul: When I have so many tabs open that I can't read the titles, I find this extension is essential. It's simple and quick to drop down the list and click or scroll to the window I'm looking for. I know it doesn't let you search across multiple windows or re-sort the list of tabs but I don't need any of that - just a drop-down list of tabs in order is perfect for me.
  • (2020-01-25) Graham Perrin: Unless I'm missing something, it doesn't work properly with multiple windows.
  • (2019-11-22) Reth Hard: I like this extension, but the Icon being black, it's disappearing when we are using a black theme.. Is it possible to add an option to change the color of the icon? For the moment, I am editing the icon file to make it white but I'm pretty sure many people have no clue where to find this file... Thank you for this great extension!
  • (2019-11-05) John Sabatini, Jr.: Works with Brave. Does everything it says. Allows me to view past Chrome/Brave's max out of tabs. Very good UI
  • (2019-06-21) Stephen S: An auto start fn would be nice. Also have the option to dock left or right. And maybe save sessions also. Still thanks for the ext.
  • (2019-06-04) Mark Jolley: Thank you. Chrome really dropped the ball on this one and you saved me. Other tab managers I tried either didn't work or were too complicated and cumbersome. This is simple and works.
  • (2019-02-12) Mirek Interactive: No option to show all address with tab name - only tab title. No option to remember last searched query. No option to sort tabs (in the list) by the "last usage" order. VERY IMPORTANT! No option to resize the popup window.
  • (2018-11-25) Hamish MacEwan: Really finding this very useful after a period with a low-res 22" monitor where Chrome tabs just vanish. If could ask for an enhancement, it would be that TabMan has tabs, for each open window (about 4-5 usually) and that the search work over all tabs in all windows. If the selected tab isn't visible, TabMan gives focus to the window and then the tab within it. Thanks again.
  • (2018-10-24) Primal Mammal: If there was history search feature, I'd switch from Quick Tabs, because I really like the design and Dock mode
  • (2018-10-06) Денис Ковалюк: Это. Просто. Ахуенно!
  • (2018-09-21) Nisachar singh: can add more functionality, maybe auto suspension, Multi window support and session manager... Also once you close the flyout window, it cannot be restored unless you restart chrome
  • (2018-09-21) Архип Дуликов: Здравствуйте! Спасибо за полезное расширение. Есть вопрос или скорее пожелание. Когда открывается попап то при нажатии стрелок вперед - назад то вкладки сразу переключаются, а не происходит навигация в попапе что было бы логично, как я считаю. Еще. При работе из полноекранного режима(F11) активация папапа приводит к возврату в обычный режим. И иногда дополнение перестает работать и только при перезагрузке страницы снова начинает работать. Добра!
  • (2018-09-14) Юрий Крамаренко: хорошая идея, но расширение регулярно "тошнит".
  • (2018-09-07) Luke Flegg: Just seems like a much more basic, less powerful version of Tabs Outliner. 'Dock' means 'Resize just this Chrome window and place Tabsman in a completely separate window next to it'. That isn't docking. Docking is like in VLC player when the playlist is actually attached to the player. If I maximize my Chrome window, Tabsman is lost behind.
  • (2018-07-13) Plum Gurly: Simple and does what I want it to do.
  • (2018-06-16) Jacen Shu: idk... it worked when I first installed and then suddenly it's gone and I can't get it back. shortcuts don't work. clicking extension didn't work. broken. reinstalled but idk, kinda lost faith. edit: okay, kinda figured out what's wrong but no fix. will describe issue in "support" section. update: I figured out a few days ago why it's called TABMAN. And has a batman-ish icon. tab is bat backwards.... 😒
  • (2018-06-10) Denial Wayne: Очень круто, удобно, в минимализме.Только вот у меня темная тема, и расширение на фоне тьмы нельзя разглядеть, что делать?разрабы?))
  • (2018-02-18) Олег Иванов: Thank for this addon! With the ability to set the width more will be very good...
  • (2018-02-14) Tyrion Lannister: Dock mode is what I have been looking for since long long time ago. Thank you!!
  • (2017-11-30) Doris & Claude Thomassin: Looks good but would be more useful if : 1. docking could be either right or left 2. if height of the tabs was adjustable (less blank space between lines (tabs) or font size adjustable (with auto adjustment of the height of the tabs) 3. if the width of the tabs "window" could be adjusted 4. if the Chrome windows could be "maximized" in the space left by the vertical tabs "window" 5. if the keybord shortcuts could be changed 6. if possible the original tabs on top of the window could be "eliminated"
  • (2017-11-20) Andrew Perry: Brilliant - for someone who suffers from extreme tab-itis, this is indispensable. Almost makes up for the lack of tab sidebar extensions typically available for Firefox but not Chrome (due to Chromes limitations on sidebars generally).
  • (2017-10-12) Rogerio M. Souza: Excelente e excepcional addOn. Para quem utiliza mais de um monitor este addOn é uma mão na roda, pois permite visualizar as URLs abertas e saltar de uma página para outra em milésimos de segundo (ativar a opção docked). Obrigado ao desenvolvedor!
  • (2017-08-26) Ko6pa: Великолепное расширение ! То, к чему я давно привык в Опере. Архиполезно при большом количестве вкладок. Было бы еще удобнее, если бы интегрировалось на постоянную в основное окно хрома. Еще хорошо бы, чтобы разворачивалось вместе с восстановлением самого Хрома из свернутого состояния.
  • (2017-06-30) Jaime Dávila: thanks for this :)
  • (2017-06-09) Vitaly Zdanevich: Please provide optional dark theme and ability to increase width of the panel.
  • (2017-06-04) Kevin Kleinfelter: I would really like to see it display tabs from all Chrome windows -- perhaps grouped by window, with separators between each group. I've got multiple windows, and finding the window with the tab I'm looking for can be just as much bother.
  • (2017-06-03) Klabi Klebi: Does not support multiple Chrome Windows.
  • (2017-05-12) Joey Fisher: simple and clean. Does exactly what I want it to!

  • (2021-03-20, v:0.12.4) Mark Davies: Problem
    1. I'm having a problem undocking it in a new chrome tab 2. I'm unable to change the "open in docked mode" top "open in undocked mode"
  • (2021-01-31, v:0.12.4) Winson Duong: Tabman Crashes When Docking mode is triggered - Working for Years until now
    Hi, Tabman is an absolute game changer. I've been using it for awhile with no issues until very recently. Not sure what is causing the issue as I haven't added any new extensions since the problem originated. I haven't seen any others with this issue. I tried checking the Keyboard Shortcuts to make sure it's not conflicting with another extension, but didn't see anything off there. Would someone be able to help me with this? I really, really wanna use Tabman again!

    Hello. I'd like to offer a new ad format for your consideration. We are a young modern team of specialists engaged in developing products for monetization of browser extensions. Our new product called uSearch is a groundbreaking promotion system for sales on the sites. The key principle of operation is that in search engines partners' extention will display the advertisers' icon left to the page name thus attracting attention of users. HOW DOES IT WORK? 1. You place our code in extensions 2. During the search users will see highlighted icons of our partners' shops. 3. After purchasing something on the partner's shop website you will receive your percentage of the conversion If interested, we can show examples how it works when our code has been installed.
  • (2020-10-03, v:0.12.4) Frank Cardenas: Mac
  • (2020-02-24, v:0.12.4) Cliff Smolinsky: Dock option broken in latest builds
    Please see https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1053900 and the comment I left in the bug. Chrome functionality has been fixed and resizing the window no longer automatically removes the maximize state. The extension code needs to be updated to first un-maximize the Chrome window and then perform resize actions.
  • (2019-03-19, v:0.12.4) A1484 A1484: wrong tablist for active browser window
    Hello, wrong windows tablist using "Always use docked" Mode when having multiple windows open in Chrome. Alway the first windows tablist is shown. Thank You
  • (2019-02-15, v:0.12.4) Mirek Interactive: Improvements
    Hello, can you add those options: Option to sort tabs (in the list) by the "last usage" order. VERY IMPORTANT! Option to show all address with tab name - only tab title. Option to remember last searched query. Option to resize the popup window. Thanks!!!!!
  • (2018-08-29, v:0.12.4) Daniel Tayloe: Docked mode workspaces problem
    If there are multiple workspaces with different google chrome windows (I'm using a Mac but Windows 10 has same feature), tabman will display tabs only from original window if docked mode is enabled.
  • (2018-08-26, v:0.12.4) Ilya Kaplan: up/down doesn't work on Mac
    Just installed, tried to use. When clicking DOWN it immediately opens the tab that is being selected, making the extension unusable.
  • (2018-06-28, v:0.12.4) Владимир Соловьёв: Tab height adjustment
    Please add the option to select tabs height in the tab list or automatically adjust height to minimal. Some times, when you have too many tabs, you don't need beauty or nice readability, you just want to be able to see as many lines as possible on the screen at the same time. Thank you! This plugin saved me lot of time!
  • (2018-06-28, v:0.12.4) Владимир Соловьёв: Docking on second monitor
    When Docking browser on secondary monitor, Tabman move whole browser to main monitor. Expected behavior: on the same monitor.
  • (2018-06-11, v:0.12.4) Jacen Shu: close dock and can't open again
    you got some sort of bug where if I close the docked window, especially with ctrl-w, then I can't open the extension again, not with shortcuts and not with clicking; nothing. I have to either reinstall or restart chrome. I'm gonna try and use without docking until you get this fixed. please fix.
  • (2018-05-14, v:0.12.4) All windows
    I use another extension like yours to see all tabs in all Chrome windows but it's ugly. This one is much cleaner and behaves more like I like but I can only see the tabs of the current window. I'd like to be able to see the other windows and tabs I have open.
  • (2018-04-07, v:0.12.4) Jimmy B: Colour options
    Love the extension! I've just migrated from Chrome Side Tabs and in comparison, the way Tabman handles positioning of the dock is like a dream. With CST the dock was always jumping around or messing up my main window position, it was a nightmare. So thank you. I notice in the tutorial that you mention the ability to change theme in the settings panel but there isn't any option to actually do this. Ideally, it would be great to be able to set background/foreground/highighlight colours and even text size and font. At least, it would be great if you added a basic dark grey night mode. That alone would make this extension a 10/10 for me to be honest, custom colours would just be icing on the cake. Thanks for making a docked tab manager, there are hundreds of them and it seems that >99% seem to miss this (seemingly) obvious feature. Keep up the great work.
  • (2018-03-08, v:0.12.4) Nicole Freed: Suggestions: Be able to set dock location and width, and resize with page width
    Hello! I love Tabman! Here are some suggestions I'd love to see implemented in future versions: 1) Be able to set dock location (left or right), 2) Be able to set dock width in pixels, and 3) Have the dock resize automatically with changes in the page width. Also, 4) Make it harder to close the Tabman dock accidentally (like when I think I'm closing a page with Cmd-W but am actually on the Tabman dock). Thanks!
