  • (2020-09-06) D-Rock Anomaly: As I get older, I find, I become smarter in certain ways... But more scattered in others. Seems like I always end up with 12 tabs open these days xD this was helpful. I'm only 31 jeez. I'm gonna be a mess when I'm older.
  • (2020-03-09) Thibault Messemacre: Excellent, dead simple and so efficient
  • (2019-06-22) Alex Pekarsky: I've been looking for this kind of extension for a while since I've been in a bad habit of opening too many tabs. Mostly like seeing YouTube videos I wanna watch so I immediately put in a new tab, or tabs I just forget to close when done. I'm so happy for it.

  • (2018-03-17) Jacob Kling: Lost all my tabs that were open in chrome. It wasn't even close to the maximum and they still all dissappeared! Cannot recommend this app.
  • (2017-07-08) Fergus Wilson-Berry: No problems.
  • (2017-05-17) Best of its kind, an unsung hero! Would be great if it has the option to show a desktop notification instead of an alert. Thanks for this.

  • (2017-11-29, v:0.2.0) Jeff Walley: Tab count resets
    When I limit the number of tabs that can be opened it works - while in that session. If I restart the browser it gets reset to the default values. Is that by design? I want to limit the number of tabs that can be opened on a Chrome device in Kiosk Mode. Thanks.
