The main purpose of Tab Manager Plus is to find "lost" tabs easily. You can open the Tab Manager with a keyboard shortcut - Ctrl+M / Cmd+M or by clicking on the icon - and then you can type right away! The Tab Manager will then show you all tabs that match your search terms - by tab title, and by url. If you've found your tab, and it's the only one selected - press "enter" - and you will jump right to it! If you don't like one of the layouts, there's in total 4 more views available : ★ Block view ( Shows you groups of icons - each window is one group ) ★ Big block view ( same as above, but with bigger icons ) ★ Horizontal view ( every window is one line, and every tab is represented by an icon ) ★ Vertical view ( a list of all your tabs - with readable titles ) You can move tabs between windows in every view - and you can select tabs with your right mouse button ( or CTRL+click on Mac ). Once you have selected a few tabs, simply press the "enter" key, and all tabs will be moved to a new browser window. Are you stuck with lost duplicate tabs? Simply press the "duplicate tabs" icon, and Tab Manager will highlight the Duplicates for you. You can then press "Enter" as well, and they will be moved to a separate window. ➤ Don't like animations? You can turn off / turn on animations in the options. ➤ The window is too big - the tabs take too much space? Switch to a compact view in the options - it's less beautiful, but more space efficient. ➤ In each window you will find 2 action buttons. One + icon, that opens a new tab in that window, and a x icon, which closes the whole window. If you don't like these 2 buttons, then you can disable them in the options as well. If you want to have an overview over your incognito tabs as well - make sure to go into the extension settings, and to enable the extension in Incognito mode. ★ Additional benefits Depending on how many scripts are running inside your tabs, cleaning out duplicates from time to time can also speed up your computer by reducing the CPU load. Please take care of your computer. ★ Not so obvious nowadays, but important nevertheless : - We don't share ANY data with anybody. Everything happens offline and in your browser only. - This version does NOT have any malware or hidden ads. We made this, because we were fed up with the previous version that was infested with malware and ads. - We love Tab Manager - we hope you love it, too. ★★★★★ If you like it, please leave a rating. ★★★★★ If you have suggestions, leave a comment in the support box. ★ Legalitites : This app is not affiliated with Google or Google Chrome.

  • (2020-01-19) Zzm Z: Nice plugin. Request a feature. Make it possible to right click to open a single tab from saved window
  • (2020-01-15) Krittin Pukawanut: Always want to have this tool its like a godsend glad I'm found this.
  • (2020-01-15) Manuel Silva: It helps organizing and sorting tabs into thematic groups. It also helps organizing the work flow. And those new projects that appear, but must be posponed because of lower priority, won't be forgot because of the ability of saving groups of tabs, even when Chrome is closed. Thanks.
  • (2020-01-10) Holmbase: Found this looking for a way to limit the number of tabs, but only on certain windows (ie, for pages where you don't want to share). I am only seeing a way to set this limit globally. Am I missing something?
  • (2020-01-10) Paras Chunilal Kaneria: Very Nice, I have been using it for just over a month but I liked it very much that I recommend every one.
  • (2020-01-10) Felix Zhang: A must-have for everyone
  • (2020-01-09) супер!!
  • (2020-01-07) S. Lee Gooding: FANTASTIC! I recently switched to Brave Browser and my previous tab manager (Tabli) does not work with it. This works perfectly and has very similar functionality.
  • (2020-01-05) Go MasterZero: works great for batch tab managment :) could easily go into list mode, then batch delete selected 650 tabs out of 725 gets a few minutes to get used to it intuitive and lightweight, nice job @dev
  • (2020-01-04) Casey Boettcher: Thanks so much for resurrecting this extension, and cheers to its original author, Patrik Stutz.
  • (2020-01-03) Леонид Винокуров: Прекрассное расширение! Конечно, не как в Cent browser (встроенная функция списска открытых сайтов), но тоже хорошо! Не хватает только русского языка. но это уже придирки)
  • (2020-01-01) John Larcheveque: Does what it promises. Unfortunately, it cannot be used for fast navigation across tabs, because it doesn't display a tab's title until you hover over it. I've installed Cluster instead, which gives you a bird's eye view of all your tabs.
  • (2019-12-18) GIAN KARLO Go: Everything I'm looking for.
  • (2019-12-12) Safak MERT: Very good :) Thanks
  • (2019-12-09) Harris121 Channel: Save for LATER windows (Save Windows)...don't open when clicked...just blank pages or windows???! Please update to save SESSIONS...and LOCK those sessions from deletion. ALSO...please add capability to save multiple tab SESSIONS...Thanks! :)
  • (2019-12-08) Anton Timoshenkov: Очень удобно, хотя дизайн детсковатых старой виндой попахивает, но это мелочь. Малацы, отличная идея!
  • (2019-12-08) Matheus Oliveira: A really good extension, but a suggestion can be made about the use of keyboard inside the extension. For example, it could be possible to use the "shift" to select the tabs (on the extension), what makes all the process more fast to suspend tabs, for example.
  • (2019-11-27) Infinite Jim: First time user/first time install/initial reaction. WOW. This allows granular control of the tabs for the control freak in all of us! I can move tabs from one window to another, I can organize and group tabs; I can identify duplicate tabs and delete the duplicates! This is a Great add on. Many thanks. [I've received no compensation for this rating--I'm just a power user who appreciates the nuances of how a browser can effectively streamline our online experiences].
  • (2019-11-22) A L: THIS IS AMAZING Very user-friendly, extremely convenient, Easily search ALL YOUR WINDOWS and the tabs in them, and I love settings. It's cool that you can change the color of each window you have open for easy visual recognition.
  • (2019-11-21) Junyin Wu: Thanks a lot, managing many tabs is a big pain point, with this great ext, it's easy to switch tabs between windows. A feature request too, can you please add a feature for organizing tabs feature? one example idea could be, re-organizing tabs by their domain names. Please +1 if this is needed for other users too.
  • (2019-11-19) Ouzaifah Bundhoo: Markus, im writing to you the one who made it, because i have a suggestion. the feature u made is awesome, and i know u also did it to help urself manage ur tabs so this suggestion would help you too. I was wondering if u could also, color the actual window, or the preview window that pops up when the mouse hovers over the google chrome icon. This would make it easier to color categorize, as i don't need to open the extension to see it. Now i understand that you would have to override, existing themes, but i do know that it is POSSIBLE. because the themes itself, changes the window color, and the window preview color. So please look into it, if you need help i could help. Im a 2nd year chemical engineering at University of Toronto, but i've never made an extension before.
  • (2019-11-15) Phillip Mai: I organized all my tabs into their respective Windows folder through the extension because I presumed that it would auto-save them that way. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. If this extension had the feature to save sessions with their corresponding tabs, as well as the ability to draw these sessions back up within the popup menu, then this extension would more than likely be my go-to for this. I love the UI design, but that lacking feature is what's killing it for me.
  • (2019-11-12) End Cycle: Title of windows doesn't save on exit.. Very annoying. Visually unappealing.
  • (2019-11-03) Jason: Ok I was using this app for one primarly function, finding duplicates! Where has that gone?
  • (2019-10-30) Na Al: Good App, easy to use, easy to understand while offering the needed options which are helpful for organizing tabs and windows.

Latest issues

  • (2020-01-17, v:5.1.3) Ron Dick: Window Names Lost on Reboot
    I really like this extension - it's exactly what I have been looking for. The only problem I have is when I shut down my computer, most of the names I have assigned to each window are lost. The only name that remains when I have rebooted is "Main", the first window I named. Is this a bug, or am I not saving the name properly?
  • (2020-01-15, v:5.1.3) Manuel Silva: hiding and unhiding groups of tabs
    In my opinion, I would like a group to be actually moved from one side to another, rather than copied. I mean, when I click the star, it creates a copy in the saved side, but doesn't delete the original (active). On the other hand, when I recall a saved group, the saved version remains, and therefore a copy is created in the active side. This leads to duplicates, and sometimes I forget deleting the original, and later there will be lots of duplicates, and a confusion to see what is the latest version of a group. I have other suggestions, but for now it is only this one: move instead of copy groups (saved/active).
  • (2020-01-10, v:5.1.3) Holmbase: Limiting the number of tabs for a specific browser window.
    Accidentally posted this under reviews first, sorry. Found this extension looking for a way to limit the number of tabs, but only on certain windows (ie, for pages where you don't want new tabs to get added when clicking links - ie, you don't want to share). I am only seeing a way to set this limit globally. Am I missing something? It would be great if this could be set on just a specific window.
  • (2020-01-01, v:5.1.3) Sheila Addison: Can you include tab position & focus management?
    Hi - I was using Tabs Plus in order to make Chrome open related tabs (when I command-click or right-click) at the far left, rather than next to my current tab, and to make them open in the background. Until recently, command-T still opened a new tab in the foreground (with focus) so I could command-T, Google something quickly, then close the tab and be back at my original tab. But that behavior has changed, perhaps due to a Chrome upgrade, and now command-T also opens in the background. I would love to run just one tab manager extension and yours is far more useful overall. If we could get position and focus management for new tabs, that would make it ideal for my needs.
  • (2019-12-18, v:5.1.3) Laura Timmel: Highlight color makes text unreadable in dark mode
    The highlight color for selected text and search results is the same whether you're using light or dark mode: yellow. In light mode, that gives you black text on yellow, which is fine. In dark mode, however, it's white text on yellow, which is basically impossible to read. Either a different highlight color or making highlighted tabs' text black would be fine. (Thanks for an excellent extension!)
  • (2019-12-13, v:5.1.3) Sasha Q: addon has a mind of its own
    it seems to automatically be minimizing windows when i open my browser, and shows a blank white box when i try to restore them, requiring at least one browser restart to get them back. i don't want anything to be minimized automatically.
  • (2019-11-20, v:5.1.3) nobu Iwa: Cannot search Japanese name tab
    アルファベット名のタブ検索はできますが、ローマ字変換で入力した日本語名のタブ検索ができません 方法はありますか? また、検索結果のタブがselectされた状態でEnterすると新しいウィンドウが開きますが、検索したタブに移動した場合、マウスクリックする方法以外にキーボードで使えるショートカットキーがありますか? Tab search of alphabet name is possible, but tab search of Japanese name entered by Romaji conversion is not possible Is there a way? In addition, if a tab of the search result is selected and you enter, a new window opens. If you move to the searched tab, is there a shortcut key that can be used on the keyboard other than clicking the mouse?
  • (2019-11-16, v:5.1.3) David Mayhead: ERROR: Could not restore any windows from the backup file!
    Hi I find your extension really useful. Just letting you know that the above error message appears every time I try to restore a window from the backed up JSON file. I know that this feature is in beta and would be really useful to have this working. Thanks for your hard work on Tab manager Plus.
  • (2019-11-15, v:5.1.3) James Holcomb: Issue with search
    When I open the extension with keyboard shortcut, type a search string, it finds the tab I am searching for but does not scroll to the item (e.g. if it is not in the viewable list).
  • (2019-11-07, v:5.1.3) Nashiz Memon: UI bug with tab links in pop-up menu
    Love the extension, but having a few issues lately. First the duplicated button was no longer visible, but that has been fixed, so thank you! However now, the tab box only covers half of the popup, so a lot is cut off or not visible. Extension works fine, but just the UI or look of it is worse and less usable as of right now. Probably just a bug. Hopefully can get it sorted out soon!
  • (2019-11-03, v:5.1.0) Hugo Ferreira: Can't find the highlight duplicates button
    Everithing else seems to work fine in 5.1 but the previously mentioned button is gone. Was tht on purpose?, cause I don't seem to find anything in the changelogs
  • (2019-10-30, v:5.0.7) Update
    5.0.7 works as expected, thanks
  • (2019-10-24, v:5.0.4) Update
    >>make it work again! Debug from extension management says that the background page has some syntax error: "Unexpected token function" immediately after async. My browser does not seem to support asynchronous notation. Could you please use something like promises instead? Your extension is incredibly convenient and makes it easy to work with 200-300 tabs. Thx for that.
  • (2019-10-23, v:5.0.4) Update
    Today this extension has been updated and now it doesn't count the number of tabs, don't open tab list and shows an empty stub in the settings. Bad update, please, make it work again!
  • (2019-09-17, v:5.0.3) Adam Dresner US: Problems with latest version
    Hello, Thanks for a great tool. Just letting you know the latest version of TMP seems to have some sizing issues, the search bar is pushed down and is only 1/4 visible. Also the show duplicates feature is missing? Thanks! Chrome 76.0.3809.132 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows
  • (2019-09-03, v:5.0.3) Tom Nurkkala: Persist data across Chrome crashes?
    I am enjoying the plugin very much -- thank you! I had Chrome crash the other day and lost all of my tab data. Is there a way to persist the tab data to a user-space file and then reload it later? Where are the data stored by the plugin? thanks! tom.
