Description from store Visit https://ht0.de/open-as-popup.html for more details about Open-as-Popup. This is a really simple extension for the Google Chrome browser. It adds a button to the toolbar, a context menu entry and a keyboard shortcut that allows you to move a tab to a new popup window. A popup window is a window without the navigation and the tab bar, so it will use much less vertical space. Because there is no toolbar visible inside a popup window, you need to use the context menu or the keyboard shortcut to move it back to a normal window if you want to. It will then try to attach it back to the window it earlier was detached from, and if this fails, for example because the window was meanwhile closed, it will attach it to the last focused window.

  • (2020-04-10) Richard Harvey: Did the job perfectly!
  • (2020-04-06) He llo: WWonderful plugin! Love it. but when it was quited, the position of the window is random, plz fix it. Thx.
  • (2020-02-04) Mark K: You are a heavenly saint from the heavens. You should be immediately, as of right now, beatified, canonized and printed on money around the world. You should be revered, hallowed and adored. And the story of your life should be taught to every kid in school, after it is sung to them in their infancy by their parents as a lullaby. If there is anything to be added, it's that it doesn't currently work with the new Chromium Edge. Yet it does work perfectly in Brave and Chrome. Again, thank you ever so much.
  • (2020-01-29) Anzelika Jerofenko: Wonderful! I use it to watch Udemy course videos and end up having more vertical screen space for my coding windows :)
  • (2020-01-06) Taylor Anderson: Great extension! Thank you!
  • (2019-12-23) Ovy Ron: Thanks, works great! The only problem is how it's so hard to find for what I use it for, so hopefully adding these terms here will help people find it: "How to hide chrome omnibox" "how to hide chrome address bar" "how to hide chrome tabs" "how to hide chrome url bar" "enabling chrome compact mode" "enable chrome presentation mode" "chrome full screen without maximizing" "chrome chromeless window" "disable chrome clutter" "chrome window with just borders." This extension should be a top result!
  • (2019-12-01) Maurizio Delmonte: top, fa quel che promette, permettendo di aprire URL in finestre come popup, mettendo le finestre a tutto schermo si nasconde qualsiasi controllo esterno alla pagina.
  • (2019-10-21) Ben Witmer: So simple its perfect
  • (2019-10-07) Brian Eagle: For a long time I've been using Vivaldi to do this same thing because it's much more flexible and Chrome's tabs and address bar are so big and clunky with extra unused space on top of that for some reason. Now having this extension in Chrome has just cut out some extra steps for me and it's great! Thank you!
  • (2019-08-28) Adan M: Only thing missing is Always stay on top feature. Thankfully I have this with AHK.
  • (2019-07-24) Anders R Ese: Thank you for making this <3
  • (2019-06-27) Jiahui Chen: just what i need
  • (2019-06-26) Akul __: Very useful. Exactly what I needed.
  • (2019-06-26) Mario Chapa: This is awesome stuff. For the most part I use Vivaldi which has a setting to hide the UI. But there are couple of things that its better when I do it in chrome, so this extension lets me have true full screen mode, as it hides the tab bar and address bar, those things eat up a considerable portion of the screen's real state. Simple and beautiful extension.
  • (2019-06-04) Alex Brown: I love this extension. I makes Google apps feel like they are standalone. 6/5 ⭐
  • (2019-05-15) Daniel Zaretsky: one of the most useful extensions in my toolset. great for opening different gmail accounts as separate popup windows. extremely helpful that they are standalone windows (meaning you can not open another tab in the separate chrome window it opens up i guess they call it app-mode)
  • (2019-04-03) Greg James: It was ok but the following day I started getting a fake "Virus Warning" pop up in the bottom right corner saying there were 3 viruses and I needed to download another program to fix it.... I have Windows Defender and Malwarebytes always running on my computer and Neither found any virus! I won't keep this extension and DEFINITELY will not recommend it! Remove that Threatening BS pop up, and I may reconsider
  • (2019-02-26) Tim Dougherty: Excellent. Enables me to open a new tab without menu or toolbar. Exactly what I was looking for. Stable. Easy to use. Thank you!
  • (2019-02-25) Does what it's supposed to. (Thanks.) Now I can put a small streaming video frame in a screen corner. WHAT'S MISSING: An option to set the new window to topmost. Currently I'm using the famous AutoHotkey to do that, but topmost is an aspect so closely tied to this extension's functionality, I think it's justified to implement it, it's not a "Yeah, but that's another extension's task." kinda thing.
  • (2019-02-07) 雷雨: 窗口看視頻利器,彈出後網頁全屏+置頂窗口,美滋滋.謝謝作者.
  • (2019-02-02) Mike Kostelnik: Very useful and simple, I use it all the time.
  • (2019-01-26) Daniel K: This is exactly what I was looking for. I was going to other sites to open popup window and transffering tab onto it. Now no more such headache. Thank you.
  • (2018-12-26) Alexander Sergeevich: Дебильное,от очередного Олигофрена замкадыша,-1 Сношу,Оценка такая же -1
  • (2018-12-26) J Millz: This is awesome for traders. You can look at multiple stocks on trading view at the same time
  • (2018-11-19) Chris Connett: The perfect way to get rid of excess browser UI.

    I'm having problems getting the popup to resize video properly. If I turn a tab that is playing video into a popup and attempt to resize, it will only resize a certain amount then will crash. Any help with this would be most appreciated!
  • (2018-06-01, v:2.0.0) tnn1nja: Help
    I cant work out how to reatach the window!
  • (2018-05-13, v:2.0.0) Aditia Nugraha: Great functionality, but could use a better app icon
    Great functionality! I'm really liking the adjustable keyboard shortcut too! However, I think the icon can be improved. There are some white pixels bleeding at the edge and it shows up quite a bit on a dark taskbar.
  • (2018-03-09, v: Lloyd Sparkes, Jr: Incognito Fix
    Please add the following to fix incognito mode. chrome.windows.create({ tabId: tab.id, type: "popup", incognito: tab.incognito //this is missing });
  • (2018-03-05, v: Keyboard shortcut
    I've set up a keyboard shortcut to activate the extension but the ability to de-activate the extension would be great too. i.e. return the window back to normal.
  • (2018-03-03, v: Eddie W: Incognito mode
    Hi, it does not open for me in Incognito mode. I have enabled the extension for Incognito in my Chrome Dev (latest version). But nothing happens when I click the button. It works fine in non-incognito mode.
  • (2017-12-29, v: Rey: Tab stuck as pop-out window
    I can't find any way of moving a tab back into another window. Apparently there was a "show as tab" option in the menu as of 2016, but I don't see it now. It severely limits the utility of this extension for it to be one-way.
