  • (2019-07-30) Victor Rak: Just great! This extension is still helpful with its fuzzy search even in presence of Google Chrome address bar "Switch to tab" feature.
  • (2018-08-02) Lexx Tham: Anyway to search tab from all opened windows ?
  • (2017-09-30) Валентин Будкін: Great job! Fast and usefull extension. The only feature I dream about is - if no tabs found and "enter" is pressed then open new tab with search engine and entered text as search query.
  • (2017-06-09) valera vesnov: Best tab extension ive seen)
  • (2017-03-04) Justin Lee: It changed my life. Thank you. Reminds me of VSCode's command + p feature
  • (2016-10-28) Florin Stingaciu: Honestly, I've been looking for something like this for a while. Great job. If you improved the search functionality, I'd give you five stars. It matches other stuff to easily. If I type reddit and I have another tab open that contains the keyword red in it, it will still match.
  • (2016-08-10) Jason Wold: Can you please, please put the shortcut key into options. had to nagivate back to this site to find it.
  • (2016-07-14) I can now fish a tab out of the sea that is my browser tabs.
  • (2016-05-31) István Donkó: Awesome! I mean, today I had 171 tabs open around 8 different Win10 virtual desktops, and this is what helps me keep my sanity! :D And the fuzzy search just makes it so convenient after getting used to sublime and atom!
  • (2016-03-17) Cyril Lepagnot: Manque l'option de switch automatique comme dans tabtab
  • (2016-03-17) shane boy: Grandiosa
  • (2016-02-02) Ahmed Brown: Thank you. Exactly what I was looking for. I love you.
  • (2015-12-05) Débora Setton: Works great and it's very fast!
  • (2015-09-30) Dan Seethaler: Exactly what I was looking for! I updated the shortcut to be Cmd+Shift+Spacebar to almost mirror the the Cmd+Spacebar that opens Spotlight on the mac. Very pleased.
  • (2015-09-23) WaQas Lal: i love it... try to add some more cool feature...
  • (2015-06-25) Jeffrey Cahyono: Just what I'm looking for, awesome!
  • (2015-05-11) Marco Trevisan: Awesome! It would be nice to add an option to change the keybinding, though.
  • (2015-04-26) Stig Sandbeck Mathisen: A helpful time saver. Useful for when I have more than far too many documentation pages up, and need to find one in a hurry.
  • (2015-03-27) Dražen Lučanin: Seems to work fine, but a bit sluggish to open the input text field and allow you to start typing in. If that would be improved, the plugin would deserve 5 stars.
  • (2015-02-13) ketan mujumdar: Super Helpful awesome :D
  • (2015-01-07) Bengt Ericsson: Seems to be some problems with the keyboard context, after switching I can't use ctrl+tab.
  • (2015-01-06) Weston McNamee: This really needs to show a flat list of tab titles, which is updated as the user types in the search box.
  • (2014-12-20) Joen Tolgraven: should be a part of core chrome
  • (2014-12-16) Bergg Uscha: just installed it. first impression - exactly what I searched for. suggestion: in order to get rid of unnecessary tabs a [x] button right next to search results (hover over) to close those you want to get rid of would be nice. choosing tabs you want to close first takes time.
