  • (2021-08-31) johnsmittie: Cool extention! Exactly what I needed. Maybe would be good to add option to only show popup without closing tab (not only open new window)
  • (2021-06-24) Drew Pierce: Works! Happy yet frustrated when it does work but it stops the 120+ tabs spiral and machine slow down.
  • (2021-05-13) Collin Evans: Simple. Effective. Exactly what I needed!
  • (2021-02-05) Gustavo Montoya: No me gusta para nada su interfaz. Además comienza limitando un cierto número de pestañas, cuando debería iniciar manualmente. Prefiero la extensión Tabs Limiter with Queue, me es más conveniente y agradable, por lo menos para mi.
  • (2020-09-09) Tejas Gupta Music YT: It doesn't count pinned tabs...in MS Edge...
  • (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.

  • (2018-12-20) Stanislav Valigura: Nice memory saver!
  • (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.

  • (2021-11-03, v:0.4.0) Ariel sata: Default Value
    Hi, I really like the plugin and I've succesfully deployed it through GPO. The main goal is to prevent users of RDS server to waste resources opening more than 10 chrome tabs. The problem is that the default number of tabs is too high: I'd like to set it at 10. Any idea how to change it? Perhaps you can publish an other version with such a value? Thanks, Ariel
  • (2021-09-12, v:0.4.0) Siddharth KULKARNI: Bug
    Hey, I love the extension as it helps me focus. Only issue is that I have a 8 tabs total & 4 tabs per window cap; but if I have 8 tabs open in total & 4 tabs in one window, and I launch a new tab from that window, it tells me that "I've crossed my 4 tabs per window limit & must open a new window" and opens a new window, taking my tab count to 9.. I guess it's probably a bug - you might want to fix :)
  • (2021-08-24, v:0.4.0) Dewey Keothavy: Settings via GPO
    Is there an option to setup the screen limitation via GPO?
  • (2021-04-26, v:0.4.0) Mariam M: Tab limit CAN be exceed
    If you overload clicking the chrome app to open it. It opens multiple windows which exceed the tab limit. I think if the program counts the number of tabs every period of time and closes the latest tabs if a number of tabs exceed the limit will solve the problem.
  • (2021-04-13, v:0.4.0) Mark Komen: Deploying with preset values
    We want to deploy this extension to a number of computer where we only want a single window. Can the options be set outside of the extension so that the user does not have to do the configuration?
  • (2021-03-27, v:0.4.0) sathish kumar: We need only 16 tab limit on browser tab set using windows GPO

  • (2021-01-29, v:0.4.0) Vince Evans: Cannot start Chrome Browser
    We have been using the Chrome Extension to help with limiting the student access. The student did discover the Extension and set it to 0. Now the Chrome Browser will not open at all. How can we get the browser to run? The 0 prevents Chrome from starting on the Chromebook. [email protected] Cell 410-557-0171
  • (2018-11-13, v:0.2.0) donny rolanda: Add new feature
    Hi, Would better you add new feature when user have maximal tab for example 12 tabs and he want add new tab again it will be open new window. :)
  • (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.
